The most common question put to the Crown Point printers by visitors to the etching studio is, “How do you get the ink off your hands?” The printers apply Marvelous Marianne’s Skin Safer Concentrated Barrier Cream to their hands before inking and wiping plates. This cream, used sparingly, especially around the fingernails, acts as a thin matte barrier so the ink does not penetrate the skin, and is easy to clean off with soap and water. The cream does not offset onto the etching plates, and its consistency is light enough so that your hand will not drag across the plate while wiping it.
Marvelous Marianne’s Skin Safer Concentrated Barrier Cream is earth- and skin-friendly, and is not petroleum-based. 4 oz jar
