Welcome to dickblick
FW Artists Ink is an acrylic-based, pigmented, water-resistant ink in a range of 38 colors, all of which have either a three-star or four-star rating for permanence.
Such a high degree of lightfastness over such a range of fully intermixable colors makes them ideal for use by artists in the production of pictures for permanent display. (Note – Fluorescent colors are not lightfast.)
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 them in a highly predicable manner.
FW Artists Inks work well with airbrushes, dip pens, technical pens, and brushes. Select colors are available in both 1 oz and 6 oz sizes. The dropper from the 1 oz size also fits the tops of the 6 oz bottles.
Neon Colors, Set of 6
This set of six 1 oz (30 ml) bottles contains every fluorescent color in the line, including Fluorescent Red, Fluorescent Yellow, Fluorescent Green, Fluorescent Blue, Fluorescent Orange, and Fluorescent Pink. (Note – Fluorescent colors are not lightfast.)

Great Ink to use on Mixed Media Projects
from Hoquiam, Washington
Separates and is tedious to shake up. Once mixed, it doesn't separate while I'm working at it. It behaves well over acrylics, mediums and other paints.
neon, not for me!
i hoped to use these as a brilliant (color wise) alternative to hydrus. i know from reading reviews that some people love these, but they are not for me. the colors are not as brilliant as i'd hoped, and the blue is very thin and completely lacks color potency. in short, these were a disappointment. i am taking the remainder of all the bottles to the thrift store.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I use this product on a lot of different art pieces. It is extremely fluid and easily diluted with water for a more washed out look, depending on what you are going for. I haven't had any problems with any of these inks. Very vibrant!

Layering with ink
By Michael's making
from Fennville, MI
This is the product I turn to when I want to do some work on paper with ink. Because this particular product in an acrylic-based ink, it dries rather quickly and so you can add addition layers on top of a dried layer w/out the fear of mixing or muddling the color. Thus, so can layer color and layers wonderfully. Also, a great product for mixed-media work.
Lower prices than where I live
By Abi, beginner painter
from Tucson, AZ
I am taking an online painting course and Tracy Verdugo recommended your site for many painting supplies. There is a wide variety of colors in the acrylics and they ship quickly. I do wish you had more of the actual colors that Paint Mojo uses in the opalescent line, like a bright pink she uses.
Everything that it's cracked up to be.
By Red Line Tattoo Art
I'm a tattooer and I recently discovered that watercolor/acrylic ink painting is my new favorite medium aside from the skin and needles and I have to say these exceed all expectations. I've only used the inks I bought once so far on a small piece of flash but I couldn't be happier with the results I have so far. These inks flow smoothly and make for very easy color gradation and perfect tone variation.
just for painting?
