Did you know? There is acrylic ink and alcohol based ink.
Ink is ink right? The truth remains that ink is not created equal. There are different types of ink in the art supplies market and each one is designed to have a specific outcome, such as waterbased ink, alcohol based ink, Indian ink and so on. Each type of ink has an intended purpose, for instance, the ink for drawing is not always recommended for ink that will flow through an airbrush. Then there is student quality ink that is made for learning that might fade more quickly overtime and then there is high quality artist ink. Artist ink such as the Daler Rowney FW art ink is an acrylic based ink that is absolutely ideal for a range of projects and the easy to read labels tell you what each ink colour is good for, not to mention the colour palette is brilliant. For example all the base colours for instance white, brilliant yellow, flame red are a great ink for drawing, dropping into resin, blending with acrylic paints, airbrushing and using in calligraphy but then you have the pearlescent colours that are ideal for everything except airbrushing as the particles in the pearl pigment is known to block the guns.
One of the most popular inks we have is the Chromacryl waterproof ink, which is a black drawing ink that is permanent when dry. It is specially formulated for students and has a great price point. It can be used in both brush and pen techniques and can be diluted with water. Then we have the popular Jacquard Pinata alcohol inks that are ideal for resin artwork, glass, leather and more.
Choosing the right ink is important for getting the most precise outcome for your artwork that you need. For example if you are looking to exhibit and sell your work you want an ink that is going to last the test of time and not fade on your collector or purchaser. When it comes to producing your artwork assess what you need and purchase the art supplies that will get the job done. Here at Artworx we are a team of artists and creators that are dedicated day in and day out to the materials that we use. If you have any queries about the type of ink you need we can help you and on top of that with our love of art supplies we have designed a VIP artist membership that is definitely worth checking out.
