Using Metallic Inks


Metallic inks can be used alone or mixed with other
Akua Liquid Pigment or
Akua Intaglio colors.

Add Shine, Create New Colors or Make Akua Inks Opaque

For High Shine Use with (Akua Release Agent)

Roll Akua Release Agent over the metallic ink that was applied to the plate. The Akua Intaglio Release Agent softens the metallic ink and allows for a better release from plate to paper during the printing process. The more ink that releases from the plate the more intense the shine.


Mix Metallic Colors with Akua Liquid Pigment or Akua Intaglio Inks 

When Metallic inks are mixed into Akua Intaglio ink or Akua Liquid Pigment ink, the ink will become more opaque.   Add as much or as little as you like.  Tip: Mix Gold with warm colors and silver with cool colors.
