Akua Liquid Pigment and Akua Intaglio water-based inks stay wet on the monotype plate for a very long time, allowing many hours to create an image. They can be printed on dry paper, which results in more brilliant colors and sharper images.
Additive & Reductive Monotype
Reductive Monotype: Entails rolling up the plate with ink first. Then the image is wiped out with a variety of tools such as rags. (Also known as the reductive method, or dark field monotype).
Trace Monotype: A direct-drawing printmaking technique. (Also known as transfer drawing).
Viscosity Monotype: A monotype made with two or more inks with different viscosities, thick and thin, which resist one another when rolled onto the plate.
Clay Monotype: Made from a slab of clay.
