Akua-Intaglio works well for all types of intaglio / etched plates including the new safer alternatives. It also, has the advantage of rolling up nicely for relief printing and now offers exciting possibilities for printing viscosity monotypes when used in combination with Akua-Kolor.

Akua-Intaglio is reasonably priced and affordable for students. In addition you can save money by re-using tarlatan and rags after rinsing them with soap and water. Ink will not skin or harden in the jar or on the ink slab so no ink is ever wasted. Use an inexpensive dish detergent diluted with water for cleaning up all surfaces and plates. 

Prints made with Akua-Intaglio are permanent and will not bleed when re-soaked in water. Finished prints are indistinguishable from oil-based prints. Akua-Intaglio wipes off plates quickly and easily. Even hard to wipe collagraph and carborundum plates take only minutes to wipe with Akua-Intaglio. With Akua-Intaglio you have the option to print on damp or dry paper. You may decide upon this according to what may be best suited for your platemaking technique. Plates with greater tonal value, deeply bitten or raised surfaces require dampened paper. It may not be necessary to dampen paper for shallow bitten plates with high contrast images. 

Please note that the tins are supplied by weight and not volume. Different colours will weigh different amounts so some tins may appear to be fuller than others.
