Possibilities for Printmaking:
- Use Akua water-based relief inks and impasto medium applied with palette knife, then selectively scraped. This replicates the appearance of squeejee and acrylic paint.
- Drip blending medium and/or liquid ink pigment and use gravity to make further marks
- Hand print on thin Japanese paper to retain delicate markings and as much as possible of the impasto
