Liquitex Professional Acrylic Ink is a range of extremely fluid acrylic paints that use super-fine pigments in a state-of-the-art acrylic emulsion. They dry quickly, are permanent, water resistant and non-clogging, which makes them ideal for a variety of techniques from watercolour effects to stamping. Liquitex Acrylic inks are compatible with all Liquitex acrylic products.
This is a fine art ink. Made with fine art materials. You can rely on the highest quality color-intense artist pigments when you use Acrylic Ink. Our pigments are processed using the latest basket bead-mill technology, where tiny reinforced ceramic beads give fine dispersion, great color development, strength and brightness. No quick-to-fade dyes, just true color purity and archival stability in an ultra-fluid acrylic vehicle.
Liquid acrylic can be used in so many ways. Airbrushing? Pouring? Pen & ink? A sheer wash of color? Acrylic Ink is perfect to use straight from the bottle in any way you want. As our lowest viscosity color, the ultra-fluid formula is ideal for fine and flowing applications and techniques. Add a professional medium to adjust it further.
Each pigment has its own unique natural character and this dictates its opacity. Among the 30 ink colors you’ll find a choice of opaque, semi-opaque and transparent colors - all shown on the label - to help you achieve a range of effects.
Acrylic ink gives you water-resistance and permanence not seen in regular inks. Because it’s acrylic, the ink dries quickly and doesn’t move once dry - which means you can over-paint without bleeding and achieve multi-layered, velvety surface effects. No smudging.
If it sticks, you can use it. Try Acrylic Ink on: stretched canvas, paper & board, wood, plaster, fabric.
On a client’s wall. In a gallery. Your work needs to stay as you intended. As with all Liquitex products, the pigments in Acrylic Ink have passed extensive tests for lightfastness. Each pigment is rated according to the American Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM), and we only use pigments rated ASTM I or II*. This means your work will have the greatest archival permanence possible – at least 50 years+ in gallery conditions – with no color shifting or fading, to stay vibrant and true.
This comparison test shows the behavior of our pigment-based ink (top) and a traditional dye-based ink (bottom) after the right hand sections are exposed to light for the equivalent to 50-100 years.
*Metallic pigments are naturally less lightfast
