After getting a comment on my blog from Caligo Inks, I did a little bit of research. This Printmakers material blog has published some interesting information on Caligo Safe Wash Etching Inks and the Aqualine Inks. This blog makes me laugh. Sometimes I forget that there is a human behind our supplies. I like what he has to say about this past years conference in Madison. I think you can only get the Caligo Safe inks from graphic chemical, so I might just give them a try. I'd like to take a bunch of different inks with me to Greece to play around with them. I've also been advised to try Daniel Smith's inks too by many different people.

Lawrence's also have quite a good waterbased ink selection but I still prefer to use the oil based inks but with non toxic solvents. Good old vegtable oil gets rid of a lot and there is this great orange oil (a natural solvent)called Zest it! that cleans safely and leaves everything smelling lovely, what more could you want.
