Charbonnel's range of etching inks is formulated with pigments following their lightfastness criteria in order to obtain a quality that meets our customers' expectations and a balanced range of shades. This range brings power, ease of wiping and a lightfastness that guarantees the durability of the work.
The AQUA WASH range meets all the criteria of a top-of-the-range etching ink. It has a high pigment concentration, identical to that of conventional inks, allowing the reproduction of all printmaking techniques: direct engraving with burin, drypoint, cradle (black manner), indirect engraving with etching or aquatint, but also monotype and relief engraving techniques such as lino engraving and woodcutting. Aqua Wash ink is water soluble and therefore does not require the use of toxic solvents, but allows you to clean your tools and hands with soapy water.
These ground-breaking inks are made from the highest quality, lightfast pigments, and are complemented by seven modifiers, giving artists the utmost flexibility to experiment with the inks’ viscosity and transparency.
