Different metals have different “wetabilities”. Some metals, like stainless steel, are hydrophobic. Water beads instead of forming a film. I’m guessing a film on the surface is important for a feed. Maybe check the materials and surface finishes you are thinking of using with various inks to see how they interact.

Or I could be overthinking this and it won’t matter. But, easy to test before all the milling.

VERY cool idea and execution. I’d love to hear about and see the results.
