For printmakers interested in non-toxic printmaking, Caligo are pleased to offer a new and innovative range of oil-based inks that can be washed away with liquid soap and water, without the need for harmful and often more expensive solvents. They call these inks ‘safe wash’ and they are available for both relief and intaglio printing.
Caligo Safe Wash Etching inks are suitable for all types of intaglio printing, for example, etching, aquatint, line engraving etc.
This range does not contain any driers. If you want faster drying rates, you can add a small amount of cobalt or manganese driers.

Review by CHristine Harrison
I regularly use caligo safe wash inks for etching, monotypes and collagraph printing and just love the ease of clean up. A dot of washing up liquid first rubbed over the plate then wash off with warm water - takes seconds. Colours excellent and good tacky feel to the inks. It has opened up printmaking for me not having the facility to use solvents etc. also excellent for teaching kids - comes off clothes and hands easily. Extender works well for transparent effects.
