How can "ocaldo" block printing watercolours be transferred or made permanent ?

    Dear Rajnesh,

    Thank you for your enquiry.

    Ocaldo Block Printing Ink is an opaque water-based printing ink designed to offer the maximum working time with excellent transfer properties. As this is a water based product clean-up is easy. It is lead of printing especially from lino blocks.

    To use the ink in Lino block printing or other relief pattern printing techniques:

    Firstly apply a small amount of colour to a flat, washable surface and roll the ink in all directions to achieve an even spread.

    Then roll the ink onto the lino / relief block ensuring a thin distribution over the whole block.

    Place a sheet of self-absorbent paper upon the inked area and press firmly to obtain the transfer. You ca use a wide variety of objects to produce a print, such as buttons, coins, seed heads , wood grain, etc.

    To make permanent you can add a medium:

    Ocaldo Ocavin Medium is suitable for modelling, glazing & varnishing. It can also be used as an art medium, mixing with paint and as a strong adhesive on porous materials.

    Mix with paints to create texture, can be used as a fabric stiffener, or a decoupage glue.

    Use Ocavin to seal acrylic paintings as it dries to a clear, flexible finish.

    Kind regards
