I finally was able to trial the new block printing ink from Derivan. Thought I would try a simple multiblock/reduction print.
First, print an uncut square in yellow.
Clean, then cut away everything that will stay yellow.
Pink will be next - I mixed my own colour using Acrylic Paint and Derivan's Block Printing Medium
Here is a picture of pink prints that I left with background texture, and some that I have masked.
Cut away the pink from the lino and print the green (mixed with white)

Being so used to oil based inks, I was a little dubious about using these. But the very fact you can wash up with water is so much more convenient than I first thought. Also, as I paint in acrylics, I have many colours, so the medium is very handy to use when I want a 'certain colour'. Will definitely use these inks again,
