Akua Intaglio inks Plates /  Paper /Tools (Drypoint Scribes and Roulettes) / Akua Wiping Fabric

Drypoint is an intaglio process, similar to etching, but without the use of acids. The printmaker scratches directly onto a Copper Plate or Plastic Plate with a sharp pointed tool such as a drypoint scribe or roulette. This incising creates a burr that holds the ink. A velvety dark line is characteristic of drypoint prints. Drypoint plates are printed in the same way as etchings. First ink is applied to the plate then wiped clean with a wiping cloth such Akua Wiping Fabric.

artist: Julia Ayres

This Drypoint Monoprint by Julia Ayres was  printed from a Plastic Plate and Hand Printed with Akua Liquid Pigment using the PinPress. After developing the drypoint plate, Julia applied Akua Liquid Pigment with a dauber.To keep the color in the incised lines she wiped with paper. The print was made on moist Arches 88 paper by hand rolling with a Pinpress.   Julia Ayres pushed the possibility to the limits by printing this plate with Akua Liquid Pigment by hand. Akua Intaglio inks are usually recommended because they release from plate to paper more readily when printing by hand.

Use Akua Intaglio Inks

 

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.

See intaglio type for further information.

Platemaking Supplies / Plates

A collagraph is a platemaking process in which simple materials such as acrylic mediums, textured papers, fabrics, etc. are used to build up the surface of the plate. Silk Aquatint, Carborundum, and Photo Carborundum are considered Collagraphs. These low tech and inexpensive methods will produce rich and highly developed images with out the use of dangerous chemicals or acids. The materials applied to the plate will determine the tone and strengths of the ink, and will also give you a variation of textures. Once dry, the collagraph plate can be printed either as intaglio or relief.

hoang_fish_pot13.jpg
Thin plates (.040 or .030 ) can easily be cut with a mat knife to create shaped images as demonstrated in this Collagrah (above) by Tung Hoang entitledFishing Out Of the Pot” .

The collagraph plate can be combined with monotype techniques as shown in this print by Ron Meir entitled “Fe.”
