Akua Pin Press - There is no need to purchase a heavy duty etching press when printing monotypes with Akua Water-based inks. This precisely machined aluminum hand printing tool was designed specifically for monotype printmaking. Unlike the kitchen rolling pin, the PinPress has an extremely even surface which insures trouble-free printing. The crescent shaped handles offer proper hand positioning for printing with maximum pressure. The PinPress is quick and easy to use anywhere. It is available in two sizes. Choose the size that will comfortably overlap the edges of the largest plate dimension you work with. New style has all metal construction. Crescent shaped handles are flat on one side and hold the PinPress firmly on the table when not in use.
