Product Questions and Answers

Can Speedball pigmented opaque white ink be reconstituted if dried out?

- Asked by Merrill on 08-May-14

Once these Pigmented Acrylic Inks dry they become permanent and waterproof. May try adding an acrylic medium or thinner, but this may change the consistency of the inks.

- Answered by MisterArt on 09-May-14

Can these acrylic (or any acrylic) inks be used with Speedball steel brushes?

- Asked by Karen LoCicero on 05-Aug-13

If you clean them immediately, and you can thin them with a bit of water if it seems too thick for the steel brush tool to handle.

- Answered by MisterArt on 06-Aug-13

Can I thin Speedball gold pigmented acrylic ink?

- Asked by jwhody on 26-Jun-13

A lot of inks just plain spoil if they are sitting for a long time, similar to milk souring. You could attempt to thin it (with water, since acrylic is water-based) and see if it helps.

Does the Speedball Super pigmented gold ink show up on dark paper?

- Asked by Kara on 18-Jun-13

Upon asking the people at Speedball this question, they told me it will show up on dark paper, but you may have to put on a second coat. We do have a marker that's called the Pilot gold and silver pens that are actually paint in a pen. We have them by Sharpie, as well (Sharpie paint pens). These will work on black paper, really opaque, but you may be wanting to brush it on, or use it in a pen of your own. Another trick some artists use is to mix gold gouache with a little water, to make an ink like consistency, and that is very opaque. A friend who was a calligrapher did this with her calligraphy pens.

I love the Speedball product but I want to review your great service. 5 star all the way. Thanks, Judith Hamilton
Rated by: Jaclyn in Alabama
I just received my order today but was super excited when I saw how bright the colors were in their bottles. Here's to hoping they stay that way when applied to paper. I ordered the silver and deep purple.
Rated by: Kim W. in Fond du Lac, WI
I ordered this product because we use it to letter on Christmas ornaments. The product I received flaked off from several ornaments, so I was not totally happy.
Rated by: Britni B. in pacific ocean, AE
speedball ink has perfect thickness, is vibrant, and can go over any medium. white and yellow as well.
Rated by: Sam R. in Cedarville, OH
Fine ink. Writes on smooth- dries a little quickly though, so either don't stop or dip frequently :) the container leaks a little sometimes and it went everywhere in my bookbag, but it's not even $2.00 so certainly worth it!
Rated by: Monique B. in Brooklyn, NY
This is the best. The inks are like water colors but dry like arcrylics. They are color fast. And I have always loved speedball because they never dry out in the bottle. If you buy this small amount you will be looking for the larger bottles. I would like to see the drawing inks here.
Rated by: TM B. in Bloomfield, KY
You can't go wrong when using these acrylics for archival purposes. An essential for the discriminating calligraphist.
Rated by: Mara Y. in Lake Wales, FL
Have only just started the pen and oil rouging technique, and love the flow of your ink giving me clear, defenite lines. Look forward to expanding my horizons in ink pen drawings too.
Rated by: Daphne T. in Detroit, MI
Great for calligraphy
Rated by: marcia . in Arlington, TX
I like the it covers the first time. The colors are bright, not fading. It's not too thick nor watered down
Rated by: Phoenix H. in Grand Rapids, MI
By far the best inks I've yet encountered. All colours have an opaque quality and apply smoothly.
Rated by: Guillaume C. in Huntington, NY
Very good ink for miniatures, applies in very thin layer and fills recesses beautifully.
Rated by: Tabatha G. in Bloomfield, NJ
These inks are great! I couldnt have asked for anything more. The colors are brilliant! I can't wait to get more.
Rated by: Tori S. in Seattle, WA
These inks are fantastic to paint with. I wanted to achieve washes of color on watercolor paper without the thickness of an acrylic and these worked out perfectly! Looking forward to trying them with a mechanical pen!
