i was at the studio today, and decided to try out my new akua intaglio inks. they are a product that substitutes for oil-based inks, and can be cleaned up with soap and water. i didn't try and get too crazy with my first attempt, so i settled on a quick stripy pattern, then overprinted with white ink.
i kinda like the ink, but it is going to take some getting used to. the consistency is a bit thinner, and they are more transparent than inks i am familiar with. they are nice in that they don't have a strong smell like the oil-based inks, and you can clean them up easily with mostly paper towels. i need a bit more practice, but i think they might work really well for me.
