About Acrylic Inks
Acrylic Inks can be regarded as extremely high flow acrylic paints or as permanent liquid watercolours.
These inks are superior to dye based inks as dyes are usually not lightfast.
They contain fine pigments with a very high pigment loading. All pigments are lightfast and non-fading.
Supplied in convenient dropper bottles.
All surfaces should be prepared and primed as per normal acrylic paints.
They adhere to surfaces that normal acrylic paints will adhere such as wood, paper, board, canvas, galvanised steel and cement based surfaces.
Adhesion to surfaces such as metals, plastic and glass require priming to ensure good adhesion.
Painting with Acrylic Inks
These are not liquid watercolour paints but can give similar effects. The main difference is that these inks have acrylic binder that is not water soluble so once dry they cannot be lifted.
Due to the very high pigment concentration they can be diluted a significant amount. You can even add one drop of ink to 20ml water. High dilution levels will result in loss of bonding strength so the end result will be less permanent. If you dilute to a point where the dry inks can smudge on paper when rubbed, then applying a clear acrylic top coat will ensure permanence.
