I have been trying out a range of etching inks that dont require solvents to clean the  printing plates and tools. The inks are oil based but they can be washed out with water and soap applied with a sponge, i’ve been using a small amount of dish washing soap.

The inks mix together well and they feel comparable to traditional ink during the inking up process. I like them so far and its great not having to work with the solvent and its bad impact on health and the environment .
