Akua Intaglio inks are highly pigmented inks, excellent for drypoint and etching. They can also be used for relief printmaking, monotype and collograph printmaking. These inks are soy-based, will not skin over in the jar and clean up easily and safely with soap and water. Wiping intaglio plates becomes much quicker and cleaner with Akua inks whilst leaving plenty of ink in grooves resulting in a high quality print. Dries through absorption into paper fibres. Akua inks are less viscous than standard oil based inks, if you prefer a stiffer ink we would recommend modifying Mag Mix.
