Grain touch is a dither pattern that the Riso uses to reproduce an image on a sheet of paper. This effect uses a random dispersion of dots, at varying sizes, to recreate the different tones of an image. It is best used for linework or single color values (one color). I suggest not using lower opacities (<20% grey), as it will deposit lines of dots, in an attempt to recreate the faint colors of a lighter gray.
