Lightfastness | How long will it resist fading?

  • Each pigment is rated on scale by the American Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM). Liquitex paints are all rated ASTM I (excellent) or II (very good) and considered permanent and lightfast for 50-100+ years in gallery conditions. Our metallic and fluorescent colors are naturally less lightfast.

Opacity/Transparency | We communicate opacity/transparency clearly on our packaging based on three categories:

  • Opaque: these colors do not allow light to pass through the color layer and offer the best coverage or hiding power.
  • Semi-opaque: these allow for some light to pass through the color layer and sit between opaque and transparent colors
  • Transparent: these colors offer the least coverage and allow light to pass through the color layer to the surface below.
  • Series:
    Pigments come from a variety of sources and have different prices according to their rarity, processing and milling costs. We group our colors into a 'series' pricing structure according to how much each one takes to make. Series 1 colors contain the most inexpensive pigments, while Series 4 and 5 color contain the most expensive pigments.

VERSATILITY

Liquid acrylic can be used in so many ways. Airbrushing? Pouring? Pen & ink? A sheer wash of color? Acrylic Ink is perfect to use straight from the bottle in any way you want. As our lowest viscosity color, the ultra-fluid formula is ideal for fine and flowing applications and techniques. Add a professional medium to adjust it further.

PURE PIGMENTS

This is a fine art ink. Made with fine art materials. You can rely on the highest quality color-intense artist pigments when you use Acrylic Ink. Our pigments are processed using the latest basket bead-mill technology, where tiny reinforced ceramic beads give fine dispersion, great color development, strength and brightness. No quick-to-fade dyes, just true color purity and archival stability in an ultra-fluid acrylic vehicle..

OPACITY

Each pigment has its own unique natural character and this dictates its opacity. Among the 55 ink colors you’ll find a choice of opaque, semi-opaque and transparent colors - all shown on the label - to help you achieve a range of effects.

SMUDGE-FREE

Acrylic ink gives you water-resistance and permanence not seen in regular inks. Because it’s acrylic, the ink dries quickly and doesn’t move once dry - which means you can over-paint without bleeding and achieve multi-layered, velvety surface effects. No smudging. 

SURFACES

If it sticks, you can use it. Try Acrylic Ink on:

  • stretched canvas
  • paper & board
  • wood
  • plaster
  • fabric 
  • textiles
ARCHIVAL

On a client’s wall. In a gallery. Your work needs to stay as you intended. As with all Liquitex products, the pigments in Acrylic Ink have passed extensive tests for lightfastness. Each pigment is rated according to the American Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM), and we only use pigments rated ASTM I or II*. This means your work will have the greatest archival permanence possible – at least 50 years+ in gallery conditions – with no color shifting or fading, to stay vibrant and true. 

*Metallic pigments are naturally less lightfast
