Materials list
• A5 Craft foam, at least 2mm thickness
• Rollers (preferably 2)
• Caligo Safewash relief ink (preferably primary colours but black, white and 1x colour of your choice is sufficient enough. *Instead of Caligo Safewash Relief inks Versafine Clair Pigment Ink pads are very suitable for Foam printing too. They come in a variety of colours but 2 colours are sufficient enough. I would recommend “Morning Mist”, “Tulip Red”, “Summertime”, or “Nocturne”.
• If using Caligo Safewash Relief ink: A smooth, flat even surface to roll your ink onto. You could use a plastic tray, a plastic chopping board, you can cover a baking tray in kitchen foil and use that, or a laminated sheet taped to your worksurface. *Be aware ink may stain your board.
• If using Versafine Clair Inkpads no additional materials are needed as you will apply your ink onto the Foam directly
• Biro, etching needle, blunt pencil or an embossing stylus.
• Frog tape or any low tack tape
• Newsprint for masking
• Light weight printing paper 80/120gsm but a good quality A4 copier paper works too.
• Baren or wooden spoon for burnishing
• Craft knife, scissors and cutting mat
• Vegetable oil for cleaning roller if using Caligo safewash Relief Ink.
• Water, sponge and washing up liquid for roller cleaning and Foam
• Pair of gloves to protect your hands from oil & ink when cleaning (marigold type or other)
• A cut up old tshirt or old tea towel or j-cloths for cleaning - that you don’t mind staining with ink!
