Akua Intaglio Inks (Water Wash Up)

Soy-Based, Water-Washup. Great inks for Intaglio/Etching, Monotype, Relief and Collagraph printmaking.


  • Very buttery and easy to wipe.
  • Can be left uncovered in the jar without hardening or forming a skin.
  • Prints well on dry or damped papers.
  • Inks cannot be reactivated by water even while the prints are wet.

As they contain no dryers, the ink drying time will be similar to oil based inks. When cleaning up, use a dry rag on all surfaces. Clean any remaining residue with cold soapy water and a rag. Solar plates are cleaned with vegetable oil. Can be used with Akua Liquid Pigment and Akua modifiers.

The Akua Intaglio Range is available in 59ml and 273ml tubs, with the Carbon Black also being available in an additional larger 473ml tub.
