Review this product
Caligo is best easy clean printmaking ink I've used. - I love using Caligo printing ink. It's easy to blend colours, give clear bright results, layers really well, cleans up easily with water and dries overnight.

The results are so good people have asked me if I've used oil printing inks for my lino cuts. I use up to ten colours in my prints and it makes exceptional prints on Somerset paper.

Clean up is easy. I mix the Caligo ink on a glass plate and to remove the ink at the end of work scrape off the excess onto newsprint then lightly flood the plate with a dishcloth of water. I let it soften for a minute and it then wipes away easily with kitchen towels or the glass or plexiglass can be flushed without fear under the tap. Same for rollers, roll off excess onto newsprint, loosen ink with water and get easy cleaning.

I keep my paints fresh by buying smaller tubes for most colours and tins for white.

I have since used oil printing inks, but find the clean up in a domestic kitchen and from myself such a messy trial I will never use them again. Caligo is the best Eco friendly product I know and ideal for adults and children.
