Conditioners for Caligo "Safe Wash" etching inks
(additives to change the properties of the ink)
Caligo Safe Wash Etching inks can be washed away safely with soap and water, without the need for harmful and expensive solvents.
However, Caligo Safe Wash Etching Inks are oil-based and will therefore handle and print like traditional printing inks.
These inks are lightfast (Blue Wool Scale 6 or higher) with a high pigment loading. You may control the strength and transparency of your colours by the addition of Caligo Safe Wash Transparent Extender. Safe Wash Etching colours are made from single pigments. You can create new colours by mixing with any ink from the Safe Wash Etching range.
