22nd May 2020 Reviewed by Ethan Carney Such a great product, definitely superior to any water based inks I've tried in the past. This rolls smoothly and doesnt slip or slide which is perfect for proper printing. The price was great too and the finish is nice when dried. It does dry out quickly when rolled out but it's easy to clean.

12th May 2020 Reviewed by Rebecca O'Connor Using for mono prints and it's great. Takes a while to wash off but use cream cleanser for the sink and its sparkling white again so no worries about staining there although be careful with more porous materials which take the paint more easily. A little goes a long way too.

11th May 2018 Reviewed by Deirdre Keetley All the Caligo Inks are excellent for monoprinting either with use of Roller or by applying the mixed colour to the plate with a palette knife or brush.

Be careful about adding water, small droplets left in the mixture will bleed through the design when printed on a Press. Throughly mix the colour, extender and any solvent with a palette knife prior to rolling or direct application to plate.
