Caligo Etching Inks (Water Washup)

Non-toxic etching inks that wash up in cold water. Linseed oil based. 
Caligo Safewash etching inks, European-manufactured and now in Australia, are of high quality and cut clean-up time as they wash up in warm soapy water. These traditional milled oil-based etching inks are available in an excellent range of colours and black.

Etching can be a demanding discipline that deserves the most suitable ink formulation.

The Caligo Safe Wash 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!
