For many years I’ve used intaglio oil based etching ink for my Collagraphs. My trouble has always been cleaning my brushes. I go to the workshop, put my dirty brushes in my bag, think I will clean them when I get home, forget and end up with solid brushes I have to throw away. On visits to Printfest, I discovered that Cranfield make an oil based etching ink which is water soluble. Just what I needed! I thought I would give it a try and now I wouldn’t use anything else. The colours are wonderful and the ink is nice to use. My husband made me a cute box to carry my ink in, and my brushes are lasting so much better! Just wish they made a turquoise….
