Charbonnel Red Intaglio Inks
Every red in our Intaglio Etching Ink range is made from azo and quinacridone pigments.
The quinacridones are powerful and deep, with an excellent light fast quality. They are very transparent. The azos deliver medium colouring power and are well coloured.
The typical drying time for our reds is between 15 – 20 days. This varies depending on the colour.
Charbonnel Etching Ink
Our Etching Ink is 100% natural and non toxic. Every colour is highly pigmented, delivering impressive covering power even after dilution.
Like oil paints, Charbonnel inks absorb oxygen to dry. Depending on the colour, the drying time is between 2 and 3 weeks.
