Risograph inks are soy-based and do not conform exactly to any color standards. The listings below are approximates for reference only. Additionally, Riso inks are also slightly transparent and allow for variations in overprint and based on the color of paper they are printed on.

If you're like me, you've got some drums that have been changed to different colors and the labels have gotten ripped-off, hand-drawn and sloppy. What's an OCD Risographer to do when the original stickers are nigh impossible to find?

This tutorial applies to MZ/EZ/RZ drums. The purpose of this tutorial is to clean and prep a drum to change the color. This tutorial simply shows taking apart and cleaning the drum for new ink. Cleaning the drum instead of trying to flush out the old color with new ink will save you a lot of ink and paper.
Please note: I am not a certified Riso tech. This method has worked for me through trial and error and reading through the technical manuals. Find a clean work space and lay down some kraft/butcher paper because it will be messy!
