Matisse Inks are acrylic based inks that come in a stunning 22 intermixable colours, including metallics and iridescents! Bright, intense, heavily pigmented colours - perfect for calligraphy, pen & wash, technical drawing, airbrushing, watercolour techniques on paper, painting on prepared canvas, anything!

Matisse Inks are radiant and do not fade with time because they use quality pigments instead of dyes. They can be applied for conventional calligraphy methods and at the same time they can be used to paint with brush or in technical drawings. Watercolour artists admire the effects that are achieved through Matisse Inks. They are also great for floating or colour washes. These inks offer liner art work an entire new dimension.

All the colours are intermixable making wet on wet painting, such as watercolour applications, exciting and challenging. The metallics offer interesting additions and effects due to the different surface tension of these colours. The iridescent can be mixed wet or dry with any colour to make it pearlescent.

Water may be added to make Matisse Inks thinner and more versatile.
