Caligo Safe Wash Relief Ink

Caligo Safe Wash Relief Ink colors are available in 150ml tubes (5 fluid ounces) and 500gm cans (just over 1lb).

These inks are heavily pigmented. To extend the ink or make it more transparent, add Caligo Safe Wash Relief Ink Extender. To thin the ink so it spreads easily, add Caligo Safe Wash Oil (Thinner) or #000 Burnt Plate Oil. Caligo Safe Wash Oil contains the same emulsifier that allows for soap and water clean up. If you use #000 Burnt Plate Oil, use as little as possible or you may lose the ability to clean up with soap and water. Add any thinner sparingly since details may be lost if the ink becomes too fluid. Tack Reducer is a transparent gel made from a very light drying oil. Adding small amounts to the ink will reduce tack so the ink spreads out more readily and evenly. Gamblin Magnesium Carbonate stiffens the ink and reduces the ink's gloss level. To speed up drying time, add Cranfield Wax Drier. Mix up to 3% of the Wax Drier paste into the ink on the slab with an ink knife. This modifier will reduce drying time and improve mark and rub resistance of the dried print surface. Test for suitability before using on a large scale, multi-color or reduction print.

Skin Papers keep ink in cans from skinning over. Replace with a new paper after each use.

This ink is sold by weight rather than volume so the can size may vary.

The colors shown below may be effected by your monitor settings and are intended to be used as a guide only.

Note: Due to Postal Service shipping restrictions regarding hazardous liquids, Caligo Oil (Thinner) cannot be shipped through the U.S. Postal Service or by UPS Air. No international shipping available. Ships by UPS Ground within the United States only.
