Akua Printmaking Inks

Developed by professional printmaker, Susan Rostow, Akua Inks offer artists an unprecedented printmaking experience.  These ground-breaking inks are made from the highest quality, lightfast pigments, and are complemented by seven modifiers, giving artists the utmost flexibility to experiment with the inks’ viscosity and transparency.

Akua Intaglio Inks

Akua Intaglio Inks deliver brilliant colors, intense blacks and unmatched working properties – ideal for Intaglio/Etching, Monotype, Gel Printing, and Collagraph printmaking and can be used with Akua Liquid Pigment® and select Akua Modifiers.

Aqua Liquid Pigment

Akua Liquid Pigment® is made with quality, lightfast pigments, and does not contain any chalk or suspending agents.  Colors are exceptionally strong, yet transparent and are ideal for multi-layer printing – and great for tinting Akua Intaglio®, or Akua Transparent Base.

Akua Modifiers & Tools

Akua’s innovative line of modifiers allows artists to cater Akua Inks’ viscosity and transparency to ideally-suit their printmaking project. Plus, Akua’s line of tools & accessories continue the philosophy of pushing the limits of traditional printmaking.

About The Collection

We work with world-renowned manufacturers to bring you the most exciting products. For years, the list of items we’d love to carry has been growing – some seemed too niche, too pricey or in a category with too much selection. However, the time has come and we’re delighted to introduce The Collection. 


These are art supplies with a special story – a rich history, unusual choice of colour, exceptional process in manufacturing, or championed by a handful of enthusiastic connoisseurs. Boutique, small batch, locally produced or hard to acquire … items you might struggle to find through mainstream channels, but that doesn’t mean they all come with a hefty price tag! We’ve shopped the world to bring you The Collection, and true to our values, there’s something in it for everyone.
