Inks are a more versatile medium than you might first imagine. The expressive fluidity and strong lightfast colour of acrylic inks are suitable for use by fine artists, illustrators, graphic designers, calligraphers, decorative artists and hobbyists, to name but a few.

FW Artists' Ink can be applied with airbrushes, technical pens or traditional brushes, making them ideal for producing technical illustrations and finely worked drawings. They lend themselves equally well to clearly defined line work or broad washes of subtle, water-resistant colour (on most surfaces). Calli inks aren't the only option for calligraphy; FW Pearlescent colours can also be used to dazzling effect, especially where highly decorative elements are required to illuminate basic letter forms. Pearlescent inks can also be used to add shimmer and shine to decorative arts such as greeting cards, seasonal decorations, mounts and frames.

non toxic ink ?

I would like to make gyotaku (fish print) with FW inks and I want to be sure your inks are not toxic because I eat the fish after the print !
Thank you for answering and sorry for my poor english...

RE: non toxic ink ?

Hi Nit Nat,

Although our FW inks are non–toxic, we do not recommend you eating the fish after doing gyotaku technique.

Thank you for your request,

Kind regards,
