Traditional inks for etching and printmaking techniques. These oil-based inks are manufactured using traditional techniques and tools to achieve the best results.
These etching inks are great for working with traditional intaglio process: etching, metal engraving, aquatint, drypoint, mezzotint, heliogravure. But it is also a surprising ink for more contemporary engraving techniques such as drypoint on plastic supports, additive techniques, collagraph or photo etching. We recommend these inks especially for photo-engraving with polymer or solar plates.
