Our metallic etching inks feature larger pigment particles than our other colours. This is because grinding the pigment down too much would destroy the metallic quality of these inks.

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.
