Caligo Inks - Safe Wash Relief Inks are vegetable oil based printing inks that can be cleaned up easily and safely with soap and water. Caligo Safe Wash RELIEF INKS can be washed away safely with liquid hand soap and water. You don't need solvents to clean up these inks.

The Safe Wash Relief Inks work and feel like tradional oil-based relief inks. They are suitable for all types of relief printing for example, linocuts (linoblocks), woodcuts, wood engraving and letterpress printing. We stock the three process colours plus black and opaque white.

The Safe Wash Relief extender is also available.

This range contains a drier.

If you want faster drying rates, you can add a small amount of cobalt (siccative) or manganese driers. Our Safe Wash Inks are a popular and safe printmaking ink, wash safe.

They are vegetable based inks made from finest flax oil

Every tube of oil based printing ink made carries the non-toxic seal of approval from the ACMI. Cranfield Colours put all of the Safe Wash inks through a rigorous testing and evaluation by toxicology experts. This means that when you buy and use any Caligo Safe Wash Inks (for RELIEF or ETCHING) you can be assured that the inks are non-toxic and safe to use.
