Akua Logo

Akua® represents the same dedication to quality and innovation upon which Speedball® was built. Developed by professional printmaker, Susan Rostow, Akua Inks offer artists an unprecedented printmaking experience. Formulated to dry through absorption, not evaporation, Akua Inks remove any time constraints from the creative process since the inks will only dry once printed into the fibers of the paper. Akua Inks also eliminate the need to handle toxic solvents as both our Akua Intaglio and

Akua Printmaking Plates

Made from crystal clear, 100% PETG plastic, Akua Printmaking Plates are thin and flexible, making them easier to work with than traditional plexi. With a non-porous, soft and malleable surface, lines can be easily incised for drypoint, and is also ideal for monotype or collagraph printing with or without a printing press. Use with any water- or oil-based printmaking inks. For maximum working time and best results, print with Akua Intaglio or Liquid Pigment. May be used with printing on traditional press, with Akua Pin Press or baren.
