Vibrant colours for a resurgent art

Relief printing is perhaps the broadest type of printmaking and has recently seen a resurgence of interest. It uses plates made from a variety of materials such as lino, wood, card, metal and cloth.

Cranfield offers you a range of three distinct and vibrant formulation types to choose from.

For non-toxic printmaking or solvent-free cleaning.

Oil-based inks that wash away safely with liquid soap and water. Suitable for all types of relief or block printing, such as woodcut and wood engraving, letterpress and linocut.

This range contains less than 1% of driers. For faster drying rates, add a small amount of cobalt or manganese driers. We always select light fast pigments for our formulations. All our inks are rated 6 or higher on the International Blue Wool Scale.

A popular and reliable formulation - provides vibrant, light fast prints from all types of relief plates

As well as highly pigmented formulations, Cranfield traditional relief inks also benefit from a careful mix of traditional linseed oils. These are chosen and blended to provide a viscosity and structure to the ink – along with that unique linseed smell. This keeps the relief print as fresh and bright as the day it was created.

We always select light fast pigments for our formulations. All our inks are rated 6 or higher on the International Blue Wool Scale.

A water-based block printing ink to augment our existing ink and paint products

Our range currently features fifteen colours, with opaque white and extender. It can be used for a range of block printing methods on paper. The inks are easy to use and, thanks to fast drying times, prints on paper are touch dry within about 15 minutes. We advise users to adjust working practice with shorter drying times in mind. For example, mixing up sufficient ink for the job would be sensible, especially for printmakers who are new to this quick drying formulation.

Ink drying speed can be adjusted easily

If you want to slow the drying down, simply add up to 10% of WTC 84254 Water-based Drying Retarder and mix into the ink on a slab.

This is a quality formulation (in pigment choice, pigment content and body) and is available in 250ml pots. For sealing prints on lightly sized papers we recommend that you use a spray fixative.

The smooth colours are intermixable, ready to use and can be diluted with water. To make things even simpler, printing blocks and working tools can easily be cleaned with soap and water.
