Cranfield Caligo Safe Wash Etching Inks are water-soluble, oil-based inks suitable for all intaglio techniques: copperplate, etching, aquatint, mezzotint etc. The oil base makes them identical in handling and printing with traditional copper inks.

These Cranfield Caligo Safe Wash Etching Inks are extremely lighfast and easily mixable. They have a high pigment content (14 of the shades are based on a single pigment). The intensity and transparency of Cranfield Caligo Safe Wash Etching Inks can be modified by the addition of Caligo Safe Wash Transparent Extender. To dilute these inks a small amount of Caligo Safe Wash Oil can be added. The inks can be washed away with soap and water, the use of harmful sovents is unnecessary.
