Akua Liquid Pigments are incredibly versatile. Using the liquid pigments enables me to print 10+ sheer layers of beautiful colors and print Akua Intaglio Inks on top! It's also excellent when tinting etchings and can be used like dyes on mulberry paper.
PD Packard has been awarded a Full Fellowship at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica in Venezia, Italy. February 15 - March 31, 2019. During her residency, she will have the freedom to create a new body of work that will be exhibited in the Scuola's gallery, and will also be sharing her book art and printmaking techniques in the classroom.
