Printmakers Cleaner is an easy to use fluid for cleaning printing plates and surfaces of oil based inks. It will also remove 'stopping-out varnish' and most traditional grounds.
Apply to surface, wait a few moments and wipe with kitchen towel or a cloth.
The flammable nature of Mineral spirits and Turpentine are a dangerous combination when hot plates are used in the workshop area. Printmakers have asked for a non-flammable solution to the two previously mentioned products and the Printmakers Cleaner fulfils that request.
We thoroughly tested the Printmakers Cleaner in working conditions, under print workshop conditions and asked independent printmakers to test the product. All were so please to have a non-toxic, non-flammable alternative to their present product.
It will clean plates of oil based ink, including dried ink. It can be used to thin ink that is too thick and tacky.
Scrim can be washed in the fluid and dried outside, the fluid can be reused many times, decant into a container and label for future use.
If you need to remove stopping out varnish or hard/soft ground, wet a cloth, wipe over the surface, allow a little time and wipe with kitchen towel to remove.
For our International customers, you can now purchase direct in the Zest-it Shop at www.zest-it.shop
