Akua Intaglio Water-Based Inks, 8oz cans
Water-based Ink for Intaglio & Relief
Akua Intaglio is a printmaker’s dream come true. Originally formulated for intaglio printmaking, this ink can also be applied with a brayer for relief printmaking, monotype, and collagraphs; and it will print from any plastic, wood, linoleum or metal plate. They contain no driers, offering a long working time for monotype or wiping the plate.
The Akua Mag Mix is a soy-based water-mixable modifier that rolls out clear. Mixed with Akua Intaglio, its stiff consistency is useful for intaglio plates. It is also helpful for hand-printing monotypes - when used as a release coat. Akua Intaglio ink cleans up easily with a dry rag followed by soap and water. Inexpensive liquid dish detergent can be used. Never use toxic solvents again.
The Transparent Base is used to add transparency and create roll-up ink of various transparencies.

Akua Liquid Pigment can be mixed into Akua Intaglio inks and/or Transparent Base to create various new colors for intaglio or relief printmaking. Adding Akua Liquid Pigment in small amounts will not affect the consistency. Adding Akua Liquid Pigment in large amounts will create a thicker consistency.
