Akua Printmaking Plates for Monotype

Created by professional printmaker, Susan Rostow, Akua Inks and accessories were crafted to offer artists a completely unique creative experience designed specifically with the printmaker in mind. Made from crystal clear, 100% PETG plastic, Akua Printmaking Plates are thin and flexible. This makes them easier to work with than traditional plexi. With a non-porous, soft and malleable surface, you can easily incise lines for drypoint printing. These are the ideal plates for monotype printing, with or without a printing press. Use your Akua Printmaking Plate with any water or oil based printmaking inks.

For maximum working time and best results, print with Akua Intaglio ink. These monoprint plates may be used for printing with a traditional press, or Akua Pin Press as well as a baren.

More About Akua

Water-based Ink for Intaglio & Relief: Akua Intaglio Inks are a printmaker’s dream come true. Originally formulated for intaglio printmaking, you can also apply this ink with a brayer for relief printmaking and monotype, as well as collagraphs. Additionally, it will print from any plastic, wood, linoleum or metal plate. These inks contain no driers, offering a long working time for monotype or wiping the plate.


Made with Soy and Light fast PigmentsAkua Intaglio is a soy based ink made with the same high quality lightfast pigments as Akua Liquid Pigment. It has a thick consistency with minimal water content.

Clean up with soap and waterAkua Intaglio ink cleans up easily with a dry rag, followed by soap and water. You can even use inexpensive liquid dish detergent. Never use toxic solvents again!

PermanentYou can re-soak Akua prints immediately after printing, if handled carefully. Once the print is dry, Akua Intaglio is permanent.

Never Skins or Hardens in the JarAkua Ink will neither skin over, nor harden in the jar or on the ink slab, so no ink is wasted.

Easy to UseWiping the plate with Akua Intaglio is easier than wiping oil-based ink. For best results, use this Akua Wiping Fabric.

Excellent ResultsWipes nice and clean while the paper picks up the ink efficiently.

Option To Print on Damp or Dry PaperPrint on dry or damp paper. Plates with greater tonal value, deeply bitten or raised surfaces require dampened paper. However, it may not be necessary to dampen paper for shallow bitten plates with high contrast images. Monotypes print best on dry smooth paper.
