Akua Liquid Pigments were originally intended for monotype printmaking, but can also be used for Japanese woodcut and printing on paper. Drops of these highly concentrated pigments can be added to Akua Intaglio Transparent Base to create intaglio and relief inks. Made with lightfast pigment, pure gum binders and honey for a brilliant finish. Great for additive and reductive monotype techniques. Akua Liquid Pigments have a rich consistency and can be rolled directly onto the plate. These inks also clean up easily with water.
