Akua Liquid Pigment are professional quality, water-based and water-soluble inks that are slow drying to be used for monotype printmaking, woodcut, painting on paper as well as tinting Akua Intaglio Ink. Akua Liquid Pigment has a rich working consistency that will stay wet on the plate for hours, giving you the ultimate flexibility. Clean up is quick and easy with water.
Non-toxic and fume free with no chalk or suspending agents, Akua Liquid Pigment is made with the highest quality light-fast pigments and a gum-based binder for exceptionally strong yet transparent colours. Akua inks do not contain the more hazardous pigments that are known to contain heavy metals (lead, cadmium, nickel or cobalt).
Akua's User Guide walks you through all the tips and tricks to achieve beautiful results.
Note: This product may need to be mixed before use. Because of the heavy pigment, separation in the bottle is normal. To remedy this, just shake them until they come together again. There are no suspension agents added to Akua Liquid Pigment, therefore pigments settle to the bottom. A mixing ball is enclosed in the bottle to ease the mixing/shaking of some of the heavier pigments. It's also important to shake the bottles regularly during printing sessions to ensure consistency of colour.
