The Akua Carborundum Gel for Platemaking is used to create collagraph printmaking plates.
This ready-to-use platemaking gel offers a reliable medium that delivers fine, sharp detail and a uniquely textured surface that yields rich, velvety areas of color.
Printmakers have been experimenting with methods for making carborundum prints for decades. Akua Carborundum Gel improves results by offering a formulation that is consistent and reliable. Carborundum Gel is performance-tested, so printmakers can rely on the consistency of this platemaking medium from start to finish. As a result, prints will be strong and vivid, each and every time.

There are numerous ways for using Akua™ Carborundum Gel for producing carborundum plates.
Three approaches include; Light Field; Dark Field; and Stencil Methods.

LIGHT FIELD is an additive method where the image is created by applying the Carborundum Gel directly on the printmaking plate.

DARK FIELD is a subtractive method where Carborundum Gel is applied over the entire printmaking plate and the image is created by removing the medium with various tools.

STENCIL/SILKSCREEN plates are created by squeegeeing Akua™ Carborundum Gel through a hand/machine cut or any silkscreen stencil.
