Piñata Masterpiece® Set
Introducing a co-branded, alcohol ink set by Jacquard and Masterpiece® 

Working together, Jacquard Products and Masterpiece® have created a powerful new alcohol ink set! The Piñata Masterpiece® Set combines four of Jacquard’s exciting NEW Piñata Colors (Coral, Golden Yellow, Teal, & Copper) with three of Masterpiece’s groundbreaking, NEW double-sided Alcohol Ink Art Panels™ (5” x 7”).

The vibrancy of Piñata Alcohol Ink is accentuated when applied onto the unique, lightly-textured surface of Masterpiece® Alcohol Ink Art Panels™. Piñata Copper adds a stunning metallic component when paired with the other inks. The warp-resistant and double-sided panels extend open time for the inks, and the inks don’t spread as freely on the surface; therefore, artists have more control than ever! A subtle pearlescent shimmer adds depth to the finished piece, due to the slightly reflective surface of the panel shining through the ink.

When it comes to alcohol ink sets, there simply couldn’t be a more synergistic combination!

FW Premium Acrylic Inks
Transparent and semi-opaque acrylic inks perfect for Inktober!

FW Premium Acrylic Inks by Daler-Rowney are pigmented transparent and semi-opaque inks with a high degree of lightfastness, intermixability and versatility. Colors can be substantially diluted to achieve subtle tones, similar in character to watercolor. Such washes will dry to a water-resistant film on virtually all surfaces and successive layers of color can be laid over. FW Inks can be applied using traditional brushes and work well through airbrushes, technical pens and paint markers.

• 67 brilliant colors including fluorescents, shimmers and 22 pearlescent colors
• All colors available in 1oz bottles with droppers
• 15 best-selling colors in NEW 6oz bottles with nozzles for easy filling of FW Mixed Media Markers

FW Pearlescent Inks add shimmer and shine, perfect for creating dazzling effects on normal and unconventional surfaces. The best means of applying pearlescent colors is by dip pen or brush because the large size of the pearlescent particles are unable to go through airbrushes and paint markers.
