Akua™ Carborundum Gel for Platemaking is a medium used to create collagraph printmaking plates. This ready-to-use platemaking gel offers a reliable medium that delivers fine, sharp detail and a uniquely textured surface that yields rich, velvety areas of colour.
When printing Akua™ Carborundum Gel plates, the first couple of prints will have a slight shimmer when held in raking light. This is because a minuscule amount of carborundum will naturally offset onto the first couple of prints.
To maintain that unique iridescence in your prints, we recommend adding a small amount of Akua Intaglio™ Metallic Gold into your Akua Intaglio™ ink.
