• Cranfield Caligo Safe Wash Oil (Ink Modifier) _ Melbourne Etching and Printmaking Supplies

Caligo Safewash Reducing Oil

Caligo's specialist washable oil that you can add to your Safe Wash Inks when you need to thin and dilute your ink. It makes your inks thinner, reduces viscosity, increases flow and increases transparency. This oil modifier is made with the same linseed oil medium we use to make the safe wash inks. It is therefore an oily rather than an inky modifier. If you need to increase transparency but maintain the body of your ink use Caligo Safe Wash Extender.

Caligo Safe Wash Oil is Ideal for Monoprinting and Carborundum printing when you need to thin and dilute your inks.Also suitable for Viscosity Printing applications when you need to reduce viscosity and increase the flow of your inks.
