Print day at home

Well after dropping off my daughter and seeing my wife off to work I decided to get a run in and print while I cool off.  So after getting frustrated setting up the studio I decided to an extra mile or so on the run.  Really feel great and ready to hit it.  I still don’t like the way the studio is set up.

So I am still pushing the Akua inks, and really don’t see why some don’t like it.  I do like how the oil based really seems to grip into the plate, but the clean up is very time consuming.  Trying out a three color dry point on plexi today.  Akua let’s me set up multiple plates at a time.  Love it.

These inks are really loose and easy to mix.  I am still on my small sample kit for some colors.

These inks are great for students, they clean up with water and dish soap.  I use window cleaner from Homedepot and newsprint (old phonebooks).  I have even left ink on plates and I’m brayers the whole day and cleaned them after last period.

    This is all new to me. Can you show us some of the product of the work? It’s exciting learning about something I really wasn’t aware existed.
