18 colours of printing Ink with tin with, 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 18 colours presented in a silver metallic tin & colourful band wrap & label. 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. Easy to use with a lolly stick, teaspoon, artist palette knife etc. before using a roller or sponge dabber. Treat similar to emulsion wall paint - always wipe rim and replace lid after use. 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 Simply Black Chalk White Chilli Red - hot like a ferrari True blue - cobalt, jardin majorelle Emerald green - like the gemstone Canary Yellow - fresh & punchy Pink clay - dusky, rose petals Vintage Teal - a deep shade great for botanicals Pea Green - light and leafy Burnt sienna - mid brown on the warm side Espresso martini - like dark chocolate Ice blue - metallic & frosty Pomegranate - glossy and juicy Iris purple - moody, on the blue side Pumpkin orange - warm & earthy Metallic mint - like spearmint with a hint of sparkle Forest green - a heritage shade great for moss, shrubs Mustard - just like dijon, add to any hotdog!

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.
