Stanley William Hayter (UK) & Krishna Reddy worked together at Hayter’s Atelier 17 in Paris in the 1920’s to produce the first intaglio viscosity printing.
‘The discovery that numerous colours could be printed at one time on a single plate was his greatest advancement in the area of printmaking. Between soft rollers and different kinds of ink he unravelled the magic of superimposition – as each ink consisted of a particular viscosity (stickiness), Krishna Reddy showed how to give unique layers to the etched and carved plates. Interestingly some colours would mix, and some would repel. This technical breakthrough effectively eliminated repetition and gave greater freedom and control over his/her work.
Sticky and thick ink does not roll down on top of oily, runny ink, but oily and runny ink does roll down on top of sticky and thick. Inks of different tack and viscosity are employed to edition multi-colored prints off of deeply etched and carved metal printing plates.’ The Times of India 1 August 2016. http://blogs.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/plumage/intricate-intaglios-in-kolkata/
