Speedball Akua Liquid Pigments
Products in Speedball Akua Liquid Pigments:
Akua Liquid Pigment is a fluid pigment for printmaking and painting on paper. Originally developed for monotype printmaking, Akua Liquid Pigment can also be used for other techniques, such as Japanese woodcut and painting on paper. By adding drops of these concentrated pigments into Akua Intaglio Transparent Base, you can custom make intaglio or relief inks. Akua Liquid Pigment can also be printed on top or beneath Akua Intaglio inks for multi-plate overlays.
Made with light fast pigments, pure gum binders and honey. No chalk, fillers, dryers, or polymers are added. Colors dry with a luminous finish. The addition of honey gives the brilliant and vibrant appearance. Akua Liquid Pigment has an exceptionally rich working consistency which “feels right” for both additive and reductive monotype techniques. It’s unique slow drying formula allows many hours to create an image on the monotype plate.
Akua Liquid Pigment is rolled directly onto the plate. There is no need to roll-up and transfer the ink using a separate ink slab. Rolling Akua Liquid Pigment directly on the plate will save you money and time because ink is never wasted, and no time is spent cleaning an ink slab. Akua Liquid Pigment can be mixed into Akua Intaglio Inks or Transparent Base to create various new colors for intaglio or relief techniques.
