The major development of inks in recent years has been the increasing use of pigments and acrylic resins. The differences between the dye-based inks and the pigmented inks were slight reduction in color intensity, but much improved resistance to fading.
FW Artists' Ink is an acrylic-based, pigmented, water-resistant ink in a range of 38 colors, all of which have a high rating for permanence. Such a high degree of lightfastness over a range of fully intermixable colors makes them ideal for use by artists in the production of pictures for permanent display.
Equally, however, colors can be substantially diluted to achieve the most subtle of tones, very similar in character to watercolor. Such washes will dry to a water resistant film and successive layers of color can be laid over a highly predicable manner. FW Artists' Inks work well through airbrushes and technical pens.
