Such a high degree of lightfastness over such a range of fully intermixable colours makes them ideal to use by artists in the production of pictures for permanent display. Equally, however, colours can be substantially diluted to achieve the most subtle of tones, very similar in character to watercolour. Such washes will dry to a water resistant film and successive layers of colour can be laid over in a highly predictable manner. These inks work well through airbrushes and technical pens.
The shimmering colours look milky in the bottle with a subtle colour created by the Mica pigments which changes depending on the angle at which the light strikes.
They are very subtle if used on white surface and they work best over dark colours or on dark backgrounds and can be mixed with colours to add shimmer.
