Printing Ink 6 pots 30ml, for block relief printing, mix + match choose from 20 shades, UK made, water based & mixable



Colour will bring your artwork alive! Have fun experimenting with different colour combinations and hopefully you'll find some happy colour accidents. UK made brand Essdee, these are a professional quality water based block print ink. I have used these in my own lino print artwork and my teaching classes for the past 10 years. Here you can buy a set of 6 colours presented in a kraft card box. Add to your own ink collection, buy these to inspire you for a project or gift these to a printer you know. Intermixable block printing ink which has excellent tack and transfer properties. Perfect for stamping, lino, potato, block and stick printing techniques. Great for young children getting to grips with printing and also professionals and students. Assorted colours. 30ml per metal tin with screw lid. I feel very passionate that students and beginners should be able to try out lots of colours and techniques. Therefore, Ink is taken from a larger tube, measured before being placed in its own small screw top tin for transport. Easy to use with a lolly stick, teaspoon, artist palette knife etc. Treat similar to emulsion wall paint - always wipe rim and replace lid after use - store upright to prevent spills and dry out. All my kits & orders are put together by myself & 2 local artist friends. Together in my art studio, we unpack deliveries, check everything is clean & working, carefully wrap & package - stamping by hand as we go. I am keen to keep a 'handmade' feel to my kits, the same as with my artwork & workshops. Please add a message with your order to say which colours you would like: Simply Black (it just is.......) Chalk White (on the more vintage side of white) Emerald Green (classic like the gemstone) True Blue (bright ultra-marine) Canary Yellow (like a buttercup) Chilli Red (full vibrant red) Forest Green (a dark shade popular for botanical prints) Pea Green (a paler more fresh green) Turquoise (a slightly green shade of cyan) Midnight Blue (a dark navy or prussian/indigo shade) Vintage teal (a rich and dark shade matches to almost anything)) Iris Purple (a bright shade like violets) Mustard (just like Dijon! - ochre or dirty yellow great for landscapes) Burnt Sienna (a warm earthy mid brown) Espresso (dark chocolate good for animal prints) Pumpkin orange (zesty & juicy)

Clever Hands is a small business & Art Studio based in Liverpool UK run by Artist Catherine Carmyllie. When the pandemic hit, creative classes at the studio had to pause. Catherine began sending out arts materials by post so that her students could continue being creative at home. Since then the business has grown and has 3 learning options: purchase a kit online, visit the studio in person or watch the video tutorials free online, learning at your own pace. Catherine also exhibits & sells her own artwork.
