The major development of inks in recent years has been the increasing use of pigments and acrylic resins. The difference between the dye-based inks and the pigmented inks are a slight reduction in colour intensity, but much improved resistance to fading. FW Artist ink is an acrylic based pigmented water resistant ink in a range of 30 colors. Such a high degree of lightfastness over such a range of full intermixable colors makes them ideal for use by artists in the production of pictures for permanent display. Many graphic artists and illustrators will enjoy the particular handling and color characteristics of FW and can be assured at the same time of permanence as well as good reproduction. FW Artists inks work well through airbrushes and technical pens. FW can be used on a wide variety of surfaces and in many craft and hobby applications. FW Artists inks will bond to glass, leather, ceramic and wood, as well as paper.
