The Zest-it Printmakers Cleaners and printing fluids are non-toxic, non-flammable, kinder to environment and Printmakers!
By using these fluids you can make a small start to having a cleaner, healthier, less toxic workshop, for both yourself and your customers.
Some of the products used in both traditional and acrylic ground are changing. We have replacement products being tested, these will be available soon.

Printmakers Cleaner
is an easy to use fluid for cleaning 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.

Printmakers Washdown
is another easy to use fluid, this time for cleaning plates and removing acrylic based inks. It can also be used for removing acrylic based stop-outs and grounds. Wash away with water. Apply to surface, wait a few moments and wipe with kitchen towel or a cloth.

Printmakers Plate Oils
The Plate Oils were requested products and developed to adjust the tack and viscosity of oil based printing inks.
Plate Oil No. 1 is the Thinnest of the oils, this will reduce the tack and viscosity of oil based inks.
Plate Oil No. 2 is Thin, again used to reduce the tack and viscosity of oil based inks.
Plate Oil No. 3 is Thick and will increase the viscosity of the ink.
Plate Oil No. 4 is the Thickest of the oils and will increase the viscosity of ink.

Although Tung Oil is not a nut oil, it is actually a seed oil, some people have an aversion to it, therefore Plate Oil No. 5 is Linseed Oil only. It is very thick and will need thinning before use. Use Printmakers Cleaner to thin the oil to the desired consistency.

Sizes available - 125 ml; 250ml; 500 ml and 1 Litre.

It goes without saying - Always wash hands with soap and water after using any type of art product.
