These four process color intaglio-type prints were created at Rochester Institute of Technology by Instructor, David Jay Reed and his students. Four-plate printing on one sheet of paper permits the full range of colors in each image.
The prints were made using four registered Imagon plates. Equal amounts of Akua Intaglio ink and Akua Intaglio Transparent Base were mixed with the following colors. Hansa Yellow, Crimson Red (Scarlet Red when flesh tone was a priority), Phthalo Blue and Carbon Black.
