 Modifying and controlling the viscosities of inks yields results that cannot be achieved any other way. Taking advantage of the ink interactions allows the development of multi-color prints from a single plate, and naturally leads to sequences of related images. Layers of ink rolls can be stacked on one plate rather than separated on multiple plates, eliminating the need for multiple runs. With resists as stencils, contrasting colors can be dropped in next to each other.  Parts of an image can be protected from an over roll, and viscosities can give new dimension to relief blocks, stamps, texture tools, and cutout stencils.

Understanding the interaction of inks is fundamental. This workshop will introduce and deepen your understanding of how to mix, modify, and to use Akua Intaglio inks to their full potential.
