My second attempt monoprinting with the Akua Intaglio Ink was semi-successful. It’s different printing with waterbased inks in a kitchen from printing with oil based ink and using a press. I need practice and this was just the first day. There was too much ink on the plate so the monotype was not very good. Out came the acrylic paint.

Sigh. I over-inked the plate again for the transfer monotype. That’s one of my problems – discerning the right amount of ink.
