Silver Mica Ink, 60 mL
This bright metallic ink from Kuretake is one of the shiniest art materials we've ever seen. Designed for use with dip pens and brushes, it's the best option on the market for liquid metallic ink. It's thick enough to coat the pen or brush for even, opaque application, and when you use less ink, you can create transparent metallic washes.
Kuretake Silver Mica Ink is acrylic-based. It can be used on top of watercolor paintings, but we don't recommend layering watercolor on top of this ink, since watercolor doesn't adhere to acrylic.
Please note that mica settles, and this ink works best when mixed before use. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds. You'll know the ink is well mixed when it looks completely silver through the plastic and none of the milky acrylic binder is visible in the open bottle. There's a ball bearing in the bottom to make shaking the bottle more effective.
60 mL plastic inkwell with wide mouth. Made in Japan.
