These inks have optimal lightfastness and resistance and include a drying acelerator. They are very similar to Cranfield Caligo Traditional Relief Ink.

To increase the transparency or modify the intensity of Gerstaecker Traditional Relief Inks add Transparent Extender.To dilute them a small amount of Cranfield Caligo Safe Wash Oil can be added, and to modify the opacity of individual colours add opaque white. All colours are available in 75ml tubes and in 500g tins.
