Originally formulated for intaglio printmaking, Akua Intaglio can also be applied with a brayer for relief printmaking, monotype, and collagraph. It will print from any plastic, wood, linoleum or metal plate. When used on intaglio plates, Akua Intaglio wipes off cleanly, while plenty of ink remains in the grooves, resulting in sharp images, strong blacks and rich colours. Wiping the intaglio plate requires less time and effort than other inks. Akua Intaglio prints well on dry or damp paper. It cleans up quickly with a dry rag or liquid dish detergent. Akua Intaglio does not contain toxic driers. The ink will never skin or harden in the jar or on any non-absorbant surface, so no ink is ever wasted due to unwanted drying and working time is extended.

Ideal for Intaglio/ Etching, Drypoint, Monotype, Woodblock, Linocut, Collagraph and Letterpress. Akua Intaglio is made with a soy-based binder and is made with the same high-quality pigments used in Akua Liquid Pigment Inks. Akua Intaglio is much tackier and stiffer than Akua Liquid Pigment.

Background on Akua

The name “Akua”, means “honour the land” in Hawaiian. New York-based professional printmaker Susan Rostow and William Jung first identified a need for the creation of non-toxic printmaking inks before the birth of their son in 1996. They created Akua Inks, which enabled them to continue their art in their home studio without the worry of toxic elements. Akua Inks can be used in a variety of printmaking techniques, including monotype, intaglio, relief, and collagraph. They are uniquely formulated to stay wet on the printing plate, allowing for maximum flexibility in working time. As of October 2012, Akua Inks is proudly owned, manufactured and distributed by Speedball Art Products and reflect Speedball’s dedication to creating high-quality products that are also safe to use. Akua Inks allow artists to work in any setting, without the need for expensive ventilation systems or fireproof containers and also for easy cleanup, requiring only a dry rag or soapy water instead of toxic solvents.
