Pigmented Inks are greatly superior to traditional dye based inks that fade rapidly.
Art Spectrum® Pigmented Inks are fast drying, lightfast ASTM 1 & 2, water-resistant, non-toxic, intense colours with a smooth even flow that can be used as transparent washes, layered tints or bold fields of strong colour. Because they are pigmented they do not fade like traditional dye based inks and will intermix cleanly.
Use with brushes, drawing and calligraphy pens and airbrushes on most clean, non greasy surfaces such as paper, board, wood and primed canvas. Ideal for multi-media artwork.
