I just got ink and it seems to have separated. Is the ink bad?

Nope!

When you buy a bucket of plastisol ink, it might have been sitting on a shelf for a bit before it got to your shop. You might notice that your ink has separated a little bit. Even ready-to-use inks can separate over time. When an ink has been sitting for a while, the ink develops what is called a “false body.” It’s a technical way of saying that it stiffens up and has a bit of liquid on the top.

All you have to do is stir the ink and it's ready for production. To learn more, check out this video.
