Akua-Intaglio is the first "water-based" intaglio ink. For printmakers who prefer to work with materials that are less harmful to themselves and to their environment,.The ink contains a high percentage pigment and is made of gum based binders. This ink allows to make sharp prints on humidified paper. Immediately after the first print run the paper can be humidified for the next run. It is also possible to print on dry paper, which has registry advantages for colour prints. Wiping the plate is done much easier and quicker than with traditional oil based intaglio inks.
