Charbonnel Earth Tone Intaglio Inks
Our Earth Tone Intaglio inks are made from synthetic & natural oxides and iron bases.
These pigments help you create darker mixes, featuring a vast range of browns and greys. The Intaglio Inks with synthetic pigments tend to be lively and less grainy than the natural oxide pigments.
The average drying time of these colours is about 5 days. This varies depending on the colour.

Our Etching Ink is 100% natural and non toxic. Every colour is highly pigmented, delivering impressive covering power even after dilution.
