Akua Mag Mix is magnesium carbonate mixed with a soy based binder. Its creamy paste consistency mixes smoothly into Akua Intaglio Inks. Use to stiffen Akua intaglio ink for printing intaglio plates and roll-ups that require a stiffer ink.
It is also helpful for hand-printing monotype brushwork: Roll a thin coat of Akua Mag Mix onto the monotype plate before painting your image. Akua Mag Mix acts as a release coat when printing without a press.
A layer of Akua Mag Mix printed on top of a finished Akua Intaglio print deepens colors and gives a consistent satin finish.
