The Aqua Wash range features 17 unique tints and 7 blacks.
Our Intaglio Inks are oil based, highly pigmented and non-toxic. Matching the quality expected by professional printmakers.
Aqua wash inks soften quickly when blended. When fluid they are easily spread across the grooves of a plate and are very easy to wipe.
Aqua Wash inks can be used in all intaglio printing techniques including engraving, dry-point, mezzotint, etching and aquatint. They can also be used with monotype and relief printing techniques such as linocut and wood prints.
