  • Amsterdam Acrylic Ink 30ml

    Amsterdam Acrylic Ink is available in 46 brilliant colours, including Metallic and Fluorescent ("Reflex") shades. All colours are highly pigmented and are extremely lightfast. The ink is based on an acrylic resin and is waterproof when dry.

    Apply by brush, technical pen, dip pen or airbrush. Can also be dripped on to your surface straight from the dropper in the bottle lid. As they are water-based, you can mix the ink with water or apply a wet sponge or brush to the ink while wet on your surface for different techniques. Because of the wide opening you can work straight out of the bottle with a brush or dip pen. 

    Suitable for use on canvas, card, wood and paper, or any surface suitable for wet media.

    Acrylic inks can be used on their own for pen and ink art illustrations or for calligraphy, or as a smooth, ultra-flat additional to your acrylic paintings, when used with acrylic paints, sprays or acrylic auxiliaries. The broad base of the bottle makes it extremly stable.
