Monotype Printing with Akua Inks

Susan Rostow, inventor of Akua Inks, creates a large scale monotype using Akua Intaglio and Liquid Pigment Inks. Various stages of process are featured, including innovative reductive/additive techniques, using Akua Modifiers to alter viscosity/transparency, and printing multi-overlays. Akua Inks’ unique working properties are highlighted throughout the demonstration including their extended working time and soap and water cleanup.
