Introducing Speedball Akua Printing Inks

Akua inks are professional quality , water-based inks created by two printmakers, Susan Rostow and William Jung.   Rostow & Jung were motivated to create safe, fume free inks when they decided to bring a baby into their marriage and their New York city live-in studio.  Susan and William began looking for a water-based printmaking ink.  They discovered that the few water-based inks available dried too quickly and were not of professional quality. At that time there was not a single water-based ink on the market that was specifically made for wiping an intaglio plate or working a monotype plate with a long open time. They recognized that there was a growing demand from artists who wanted to make high quality prints without compromising their health, so they decided to develop their own water-based ink. They ended up creating two lines of ink; Akua Liquid Pigment and Akua Intaglio. The full line is now available at Art & Frame of Sarasota!
