What is the FW Ink collection?

The FW Ink collection comprises a comprehensive range of professional quality, acrylic-based inks in standard colours, neon and pearlescent. The solution of FW Acrylic Ink is highly-pigmented, offering rich hues that can be watered down to more subtle tones. Artists can apply FW liquid acrylic using a brush, pipette or airbrush.

The versatility of the water-soluble solution combined with the varying application methods gives artists endless technique opportunities, from intricate line work to broad washes.

The range is complemented with the FW Mixed Media Markers and nibs, which are refillable markers that can be used with a wide variety of liquid media, including FW Acrylic Inks, watercolour paints or drawing inks. They can also be filled with water to use as a blender for watercolour pencils.

For those who love ink pouring, create outstanding effects using the FW Acrylic Ink pouring medium, which is ideal for all pouring techniques including dirty pour, swirl, puddle pour, flip cup and swiping.

FW Pearlescent Ink features a shimmering formula that can be used to add a sparkling touch to your artwork. Whether you’re adding to decorative arts like greetings cards, mounts and frames or covering your pieces in dazzling effects, the pearlescent ink delivers high shine and translucency for unparalleled shine.

The FW collection also features a selection of mixed media marker nibs, which can either replace or extend your existing nib range. The FW Nibs are available in a variety of sizes and shapes, including round, chisel and flat. Artists can apply these to their mixed media markers to achieve techniques like technical drawing and street art.

The expressive fluidity of these acrylic inks is suitable for fine artists, illustrators, graphic designers, calligraphers, decorative artists and hobbyists.
