I ordered these in conjunction with Liquitex Soft Body (Fluid) acrylics for a painting class I am taking. We are doing a lot of "loose" flow-y kind of painting, with drizzling paints on the canvas for different effects and a few people mentioned these as an alternative for watering down the thicker acrylics, so I thought I would give them a try.
I have to say, I LOVE them. They are more fluid than the soft body/fluid acrylics, but they are HIGHLY pigmented and more translucent. They come out of the bottle darker than traditional acrylics, but if you mist them with water, or use your brush to sort of "feather" them out, the color explodes. The inks are so vivid and richly pigmented. And they blend beautifully with traditional acrylics, water, and/or glazing mediums.
I got several colors and now I want them all. I am already gravitating towards these over traditional acrylics, and I love that extra bit of translucency that they offer.
I write with dip pens of various types and I usually like not so thick, not so thin acrylic ink. I previously used Speedball super pigmented acrylic ink, which was perfect except that ink needed a few drops of water added to adjust the viscosity and flow. Liquitex is billed as not requiring to add water, so I tried this brand this time, and I'm disappointed. The ink is too runny to be useful with dip pens, and the black color is not as dark as slightly diluted Speedball. The number of words I can write with a single dip is also about 1/2 to 2/3 of that of Speedball. Speedball ink is solid black, whereas this Liquitex looks more like dark gray. The ink feathers noticeably more than Speedball, too. For colors, I found Daler Rowney to be another thick ink with low feathering. Daler Rowney also requires a few drops of water added. If you are making large graphic art materials with brush and not with pens, on less absorbent coated paper, this brand might be still a good choice, but I'm...
I'm giving five stars for this product - it's a beautiful sap green and i've been very happy with the whole liquitex acrylic ink product line. Some of these colors are transparent and some more opaque - the metallics go on looking creamy and opaque but dry with a very pretty subtle translucence. If you're using these for mixed media, they're perfect for a background layer as they stay fixed in place and won't reactivate with the addition of other wet media. My only beef is that it arrived with a hole in the rubber dropper top. Not all of the ink was spilled, most remained, but I fear that it will dry out quickly since the lid is compromised. I would definitely recommend these inks but be cautious about where you buy them because the glass bottle and rubber dropper are fragile.
