Acrylic Ink

A unique art material, acrylics ink has the best of both worlds: the fluidity of inks and the high pigmentation that you expect from acrylic paint. This is because acrylic ink is an extremely fluid form of acrylic paint that combines fine pigments with acrylic emulsion to create a unique product. The expressive flow 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.

Acrylic inks can be used from the dropper or the pot for the most intense colour that they can deliver and an opaque finish. When diluted with water, or mixed with a medium, acrylic ink makes for sweeping washes and subtle tones.

Daler-Rowney acrylic inks come in such a vibrant range of colours, it’s easy to create your own acrylic ink set to suit the exact shades you need. Acrylic inks can be applied on most papers, but for best results, we’d recommend a thicker paper with a heavier weight or even acrylic paper to bring out the brilliance of the colours.

You can also apply a number of unique techniques when using acrylic ink, such as throwing, airbrushing and blotting. To apply acrylic ink, you can use traditional brushes, technical pens and airbrushes.
