Camp STEM Cardboard Collagraphs

I've gotten a ton of printmaking experience at the Frist this year, but exclusively with foam. This project used cut cardboard to create designs with basic shapes or letters. This one was very open-ended. They could do anything they wanted as long as any words were backwards. 

Many teachers use paint in lieu of printing ink, but I was worried it wouldn't give back as much as I needed. So we used block printing ink which worked great. Anyone use paint that they'd like to vouch for?
