Charbonnel Aqua Wash Etching Mediums

Charbonnel Aqua Wash Etching Inks are water-washable, with an oil emulsion that allows work similar to traditional solvent-based inks.

Formulated especially for artists and students working in groups, Charbonnel Aqua Wash Inks clean up without solvents, and are non-toxic, odorless, and easy to wipe.

Instruments, tools, and plates do not get rusty when using Aqua Wash Inks because the inks do not contain water. They dry slowly, at the same rate as solvent-based inks.

Use these mediums to enhance Aqua Wash Etching Inks and create a variety of effects.

Thick Transparent White Lake — Mix Charbonnel Thick Transparent White Lake with any color in the Aqua Wash Etching Inks range to increase transparency while retaining texture. It can also be used to increase the viscosity of a color considered to be too fluid when wiping, in order to add texture and "stickiness," and to help the color adhere to the engraving.

Soft Black Wiping Medium — Mix Soft Black Wiping Medium to those blacks in the Aqua Wash Etching Inks range that are considered to be too thick and difficult to wipe. This medium allows control of saturation and density.

Aqua Wash Oil — Use Aqua Wash Oil as a colorless fluid medium. It is also the grinding oil of the Aqua Wash range. Use it to dilute colors considered to be too thick when inking or wiping, while still preserving the ink quality.
