Matisse Ink 45ml Black
Matisse Inks are acrylic based inks 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. 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.
All the colours are intermixable making wet on wet painting, such as watercolour applications, exciting and challenging. Matisse Inks can be thinned with water adding to their versatility, however we recommend an addition of Matisse Ink Extender when water resistance is required as the thinning with plain water will lower the amount of acrylic binder present, weakening the ink's water resistance. Adding water alone will also increase the drying time. Up to 25% of Matisse Ink Extender can be added for thinning.
