Aquafine Watercolor Inks
A complete solution for modern watercolorists

Aquafine Watercolor Inks by Daler-Rowney consist of 20 brilliant colors, made with real pigments to ensure each color is lightfast and permanent. The new fluid watercolor inks are available in 1oz jars with droppers, making it easy to fill and use with the FW Mixed Media markers. Each color can be used straight out of the dropper or diluted to achieve the most subtle tones. All colors are intermixable and rewet easily so feel free to lay out all 20 on your palette. Each color is heavily pigmented which means a little bit will go a long way and colors will remain bright and vivid over time compared to dye-based inks which quickly fade. From traditional watercolor techniques to calligraphy or more modern lettering, these inks are incredibly versatile. Sketch, scribble, airbrush, paint and simply add color to your life with these beautiful fluid watercolor inks.

  •   • 20 brilliant intermixable colors
  •   • Made with high quality pigments for superior lightfastness
  •   • Available in 29.5ml jars with droppers and 1 set
  •   • Fully compatible with FW Mixed Media markers
  •   • Designed to complete the Aquafine watercolor suite: colors match tone for tone allowing products to be used together seamlessly
