Home-Work Workshops are the most fun way to learn to print!
These are the questions we get asked a lot. If you can't find the answer you are looking for please get in touch!
What kind of ink do you use and is it safe?
We use Permaset Aqua water based inks in all our workshops. Permaset Aqua delivers pure colour, a superior soft handle and excellent durability in an easy to use ink that is environmentally friendly. This 100% solvent free range is safe to use in the studio or home environment. The pigments provide intense, vibrant colour, rich in coverage. Permaset Aqua inks do not contain ozone-depleting chemicals such as CFC’s and HCFC’s, aromatic hydrocarbons or any volatile solvents. They don’t contain lead or any heavy metals. In fact, Permaset Aqua inks do not contain any toxic chemicals at all!
