Choosing your Liquitex Professional Acrylic Inks

The Liquitex Professional Colour Chart is designed to help you select the perfect colour for your work. Each colour has its own unique characteristics and personality, which the colour chart addresses. Some pigments are brighter, and some more opaque, some even stain your painting surface. All of these individual characteristics add to the creative experience and can be worked to your advantage to enhance your images.

Colour characteristics: Each colour chip on the Liquitex Professional Acrylic Ink product page shows both the 'masstone' and the 'undertone' of each colour. The masstone refers to the colour when it is applied at its thickest, creating a very dense and opaque colour. The undertone of a particular colour can be seen when it has been applied sparingly in a thin layer, or has been watered down to become more transparent. Some properties of particular colours only become apparent in the undertone.

Opacity: The colours in the Liquitex Professional Acrylic Ink range have varying degrees of opacity. Some pigments, such as the cadmiums, offer very dense opaque colour that will allow very little light to pass through. These kinds of pigments are denoted with a black box. Some pigments, such as the Phthalocyanine colours behave more like stained glass; allowing light to penetrate through to create transparent colour. These kinds of colours are labelled with a white box symbol. Other pigments such as Carbon Black and Sap Green fall somewhere between the two, not completely opaque but also not fully transparent. These colours are known as translucent and are labelled with a half white, half black box.

Single or Mixed Pigments: Single pigment colours are formulated to help maximise the true and unique character of the colour. These colours will also give brighter, cleaner mixes compared to their mixed-pigment counterparts. Mixed-pigment colours offer the convenience of a pre-mixed colour, comprised of two or more pigments, that would otherwise be difficult to mix on your own and achieve the same brightness.

By looking at these charactertistics, you should be able to narrow down and select the colours that will be of most use to you. You can also see all the colours from the Liquitex Ink range being used and painted out. Watching the playlist below will give you a better idea of how the inks behave on paper and will help you to select your colours.
