Caligo Etching Inks (Water Washup)
Caligo Safe Wash Inks are a non-toxic alternative to traditonal printing inks. Formulated with a linseed oil base they retain the high quality associated with Cranfield brand while substantially reducing clean-up time, cold water and liquid soap are all that is needed to clean your benches, tools and printing matrix.
Etching can be a demanding discipline that deserves the most suitable ink formulation. These traditional milled oil-based etching inks are available in an excellent range of colours as well as a choice of 3 blacks. These inks perfectly balance colour intensity with the ability to wipe cleanly from the plate, without compromising your desire to avoid solvents when cleaning up.
Beautiful pigments, finely ground into the purest oil for archival results, these colours are available in a 75ml or 150ml tube, or in a 250g tin. The Carbon Black is also available in a large 500ml tin - perfect for large editions!
