Today’s video serves several purposes. As always, it’s meant to provide technique information and inspire your collective muses – that’s a given. What this one also does is shout out that we’re now stocking the complete line of FW Acrylic Inks from Daler-Rowney and that for a limited time they’re priced at 22% off.
That’s 66 open stock colors and 4 sets at significant savings! The offer is valid until this Friday, March 4th at 11:59 pm ET and is limited to in stock quantities.
The colors are separated into groups, depending on effect. There are 34 “original” colors, 4 shimmering ones, plus 6 fluorescent, and those 22 wonderful, fabulous, extremely awesome Pearlescent ones. (can you tell which are my favorites?)
We’ve sold the Pearlescent version of the FW Acrylic Inks for years and if you’re a regular viewer of the MidWeek Muse videos you know it’s a favorite product of mine. The colors are awesome and the pearlescent effect is vivid and instantly recognizable. I’ve stamped with the Pearlescent Inks, painted stamped images with them, washed colors on a background for a shimmery, watercolor-like effect, and spattered them. The best part? Each of those things can be done with any of the colors in the line. I always appreciate a versatile product and the Inks fall into that category.
This new video is fairly short, displaying a couple of techniques. If you would like to see more options for using the FW Acrylic Inks, go ahead and view the original video. If you click here, you’ll find it.
For those of you participating in the Art Journal Adventure, at the 3:13 mark you’ll see me create the colored papers I used to make the flowers that are the focal image for this week’s page. The first one is there and the second piece of watercolor paper I mopped the inks up with is at 4:30.
