Daler Rowney FW Acrylic Ink
FW Ink is permanent acrylic resin based, pigmented ink. 45 colours in the FW ink range all intermixable and can be diluted down to produce subtle tones similar in character to watercolour. Undiluted, the colours are strong and bold. FW inks are available in 29.5ml bottles with a dropper lid. 18 colours are avalable in a large 180ml bottle. All of the inks are manufactured in England by Daler Rowney.
FW Pearlescent Liquid Acrylic is an acrylic based ink with mica based pigments that give a pearlescent or an iridescent finish. All colours are intermixable and available in a range of 22 shimmering colours.
Are FW inks Permanent?
All FW inks except for the Fluorescent colours are rated 3* (normally permanent) or 4* (highly permanent) for permanence. The Fluorescent colours are rated 1* (Fugitive)
What tools are best for applying FW Ink?
The standard FW inks are liquid acrylic ready for airbrushing straight out of the pot. The finely ground pigment will pass through fine–line nozzles. They are also good through technical pens to a size of 0.18mm. The Pearlescent and Shimmering colours are not suitable for airbrushes and pens due to the relatively large size of the mica particles so it is best to use brushes and dip pens.
