Matisse Acrylic Ink 45ml Derivan Matisse Ink
Australian Acrylic Ink
Matisse Inks are acrylic based inks that come in a stunning 22 intermixable colours, including metallics and iridescents! They have bright, intense colours and are heavily pigmented for use in many applications. Perfect for calligraphy, pen and wash, technical drawing and airbrushing as well as watercolour techniques on paper and painting on prepared canvas. These 22 colours include four metallic and one iridescent for infinite colour and effect combinations. With the exception of these five colours, which have an excellent lightfast rating of BWS 8 (the pigments have not been ASTM tested as yet), all the remaining brilliant colours are either ASTM I or II. This means they have excellent to very good lightfastness as all the Matisse Inks are made to the very highest standards for artist colours. The pigments are very finely ground into a surfactant base then mixed with an acrylic binder which is flexible but tough and dries to make all the colours fully water resistant. This water resistance makes wet on dry techniques so much easier to control.
