Charbonnel Aqua Wash Inks

  • $14.50

See Color chart

The AQUA WASH range meets all the criteria for artist quality inks. It has a high pigmentation concentration identical to that of standard inks, and can be used in all intaglio printing techniques: such as engraving, dry-point, mezzotint, etching and aquatint, as well as monotype and relief printing techniques such as linocut and wood prints.


Art schools and an increasing number of print workshops are now searching for water washable solutions (out of a concern for safety, the environment and owing to the toxicity of solvents, recycling issues, etc.). AQUA WASH inks are genuine oily inks for use in all techniques whether etching or relief printing. They must not be confused with water and resin based inks such as gum Arabic or cellulose-tempera based inks that can be re-softened and are limited to monotype or relief techniques (linocut, wood engraving).


AQUA WASH ink has been developed by the LEFRANC & BOURGEOIS laboratory. Several years were required to establish the perfect stability of the colours and ensure the highest quality: a quality on which CHARBONNEL’s reputation has been built. The binder is composed of several oil emulsions. Its adhevive quality, its fl exibility and its yellowing characteristics are identical to those of traditional oils. The only difference being that you can wash hands, materials and tools with... water!


Mediums

Thick Transparent Medium


Equivalent to the transparent white Lake in the classic range, it mixes with any color, increases transparency while maintaining the same texture.
As the colors, the medium softens the mixing and does not change color in terms of its sticky and hangs in sizes.


Oil Medium


Equivalent to the light oils, fats, high in the classic range, it is used as a diluent colorless and smoothens color as too thick when the ink or wiping (the equivalent of a few drops is sufficient) while while preserving their quality of grip. It is also used in larger quantities (associated or not with water) in the techniques of monotype and photo-polymer, wherever a more fluid is oil sought.This oil mill in the range AQUA WASH.
