    FW Artist's Ink Acrylic Based
  • FW Artists' Ink is an acrylic based pigmented water resistant ink in a range of 30 colors, 29 of which have a four star permanence rating, and the remaining one a three star rating. Such a high degree of lightfastness over such a range of fully intermixable colors makes them ideal for use by artists in the production of pictures for permanent display. The inks, being pigment based, are strong and rugged. Strong bold applications of FW can be made in the manner of John Piper or Graham Sutherland, where color strength, expression and fluidity are required.
  • Equally, however, colors can be substantially diluted to achieve the most subtle of tones, very similar in character to water color. Such washes will dry to a water resistant film and successive layers of color can be laid over in a highly predictable manner. Clearly the combination of subtle tone work with strong color overpainting suggests really interesting creative possibilities. Many graphic artists and illustrators will enjoy the particular handling and color characteristics of FW and can be assured at the same time of permanence as well as good reproduction. FW Artists' Inks work well through airbrushes and technical pens which can be cleaned by using Airbrush Cleaning Fluid.
