Hey, so I got some caligo safe wash relief inks for next semester, and i have a couple questions:
1. It's fairly stiff, can i thin it with the regular linseed oil a little or do i have to buy their tack reducer? I saw they also have a "safe wash oil" which it says is a polymerised linseed oil - i can get only buy one out of both if i'm getting any.
2. Can this be used for drypoints and monotypes, if I get the tack reducer and use it in more ratio? We used letterpress inks in class and those also worked with drypoints fairly nicely, so i assume it's the same with these? I couldn't find what exactly is the difference between these and their safe wash intaglio inks. I can probably get a black intaglio ink but not all the primary colors+white, it's too expensive.. so it would be interesting to know if the relief and intaglio inks mix with each other well in general.
