Akua Liquid Pigment Modifiers

Akua Liquid Pigment Modifiers

A variety of modifiers are available for special effects and for changing the consistency of the ink.

Tack Thickener Thickens Akua Liquid Pigment for use with brayers. Add about 10% Tack Thickener to 90% ink. It is medium amber in color and the consistency of molasses.

Blending Medium Create wash effects or use as a resist in monotype printmaking. It is a clear liquid. (Also used to thin Akua Intaglio ink.)

Retarder Slows drying rate and acts as a release for Akua Liquid Pigment. A few drops in the ink are essential when printing on dry paper. Especially helpful in hot, dry or very cold climates. It is a clear liquid.

Extender Makes Akua Liquid Pigment more transparent and reconstitutes air thickened ink. It is light amber in color with a liquid consistency.

Transparent Base The Akua Intaglio ink base without any pigment. Add Akua Liquid Pigment to Transparent Base to thicken the ink for use with brayers and create new colors for intaglio printmaking.

Release Agent Highly recommended for monotype printing with Akua Liquid Pigment, this modifier helps produce rich prints with minimal pressure. Also can be rolled over a ghost impression, then printed for a more complete transfer of the remaining ink to the paper.
