Akua Liquid Pigment (formerly Akua Kolor)
Non-toxic Akua-Liquid Pigment water-based ink uses only the most lightfast pigments in a unique liquid formula.
Without fillers, suspending agents or polymers, Akua-Liquid Pigment allows the brilliance of each colour to really come through. In order to maintain this integrity in some of the heavier pigments a stainless steel mixing ball is added to the bottle to ease the mixing/shaking of Akua-Liquid Pigment.

Used for all types of monotypes and monoprints, Japanese and western woodblocks and linocuts. Akua-Liquid Pigment rolls or brushes onto the plate beautifully.
It is slow drying and stays wet on the plate for a long period of time, giving you hours to create an image. Akua-Liquid Pigment prints on dry paper and cleans up easily with water. Unique features of this ink set it apart from any other waterbased ink you have previously experienced.
- Roll-up capability using brayers or inking rollers.
- By working small amounts of tack thickener into the ink you can create viscosity comparable to oil based ink. You may then layer colours on the monotype plate with the roller to create deep richness. Rolling can be combined with brush Needle Applicators and Akua-Kolor Pens on the same plate.
- Printing on dry paper will save the artist/printmaker steps of paper soaking and blotting.
