As I do not have the space and equipment to do my printmaking at home, I am a member of Edinburgh Printmakers and use their facilities to do all the printing. 

Oil based ink is mixed on a glass surface, and great care is taken to achieve the right colour and ink consistency for each layer about to be printed. The ink is then rolled out on a similar surface and then onto the carved out piece of lino itself.
