Charbonnel Violet Intaglio Inks
Every violet in our Intaglio Etching Ink range is made from dioxazine pigments.
These pigments produce powerful, deep tones that have an excellent lightfast quality.
The typical drying time for our violets 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.
