The Pegasus Art collection features professional quality print making inks for both Intaglio and relief printing. Our print making inks have been chosen from the highly regarded Caligo, Charbonnel and Schmincke ranges. So whether you are looking for oil based inks, water based inks, or ink modifiers, feel free to browse our selection.

Caligo

Caligo have been producing fine art printing inks for over thirty years and boast a great range of innovative inks which cater to the needs of today's printmakers. These include the brilliant Safe Wash inks which are the perfect choice for non-toxic print making or for artists who wish to clean up without the use of solvents. Caligo is an independent ink manufacturer with both the experience and the production facilities to create printing inks from dry pigment colours. They have control over the entire production process and formulate inks using light fast pigments.

Charbonnel

Charbonnel have been producing fine inks in Paris since 1862 and have served many significant artists including Picasso, Renoir, Manet, and Degas. The professional quality Charbonnel intaglio inks have excellent standards of light fastness and also low acidity. They are created using ground pigments, binder and the finest polymerised linseed oil. These superlative inks are a great choice for producing lasting works of art.

Schmincke

Schmincke is a family run business founded in 1881 with the goal of creating innovative, premium products. The company was founded by two chemists who partnered their scientific expertise with traditional recipes to produce superior artists' materials.

Schmincke lino print inks are water based and have been designed for use on lino blocks. The range includes 15 brilliant shades and 3 metallic effect colours which are easy to apply and which result in sharp prints and fast drying times. The inks are extremely light fast and offer excellent colour intensity. With a fluid consistency, the Schmincke lino print inks can be applied effectively to many different surfaces including paper, felt, cardboard and wood.

If you have any questions about our print making inks or the print making mediums that we also feature in our range then please pop in to see us or contact our expert team for advice.
