Best Christmas gift ever. I have a feeling I am going to enjoy teaching intaglio a heckuva lot more now.

The box is working great! I can see a huge improvement in my students work. Thanks!

We're loving it.  The printmakers in Cleveland are in heaven.  Great product. We plan to hold a spit bite workshop in the beginning of May in honor of the new box.

Hats off!

I am in love with the aquatint box and the rich velvety black we are achieving with almost no effort.

The ABM has revolutionized and revitalized the aquatint process in the shop. It’s manufactured for a commonly used plate size making it more efficient. Students, artists and Master Printers alike are now all getting a consistent and even plate coating. The motorized propeller removes the guesswork associated with a hand crank, which makes it an easier technique to teach in the classroom. The most dynamic element though is seeing everyone excited to add the aquatint process to their prints now that they have a rosin box that doesn’t leak powder.

We are very happy with our aquatint box, and I especially love how it doesn't leak rosin all over the print shop!

Just pulled the first plate from the box...Perfect!

Our new aquatint box makes it a much safer environment for our students, as it is leakproof. It is easy to use with the simple on-off switch. We have found the tones produced with the box to be even and consistent.
