Diving Deeper with Aqua Acrylic InkSeptember 16, 2021
Whether you find inspiration in Mother Nature, fashion or technology, or simply want to experiment with new materials, Acrylic Ink is a great way to breathe new life into your studio.
It’s no secret that Aqua hues have made quite a splash in art, fashion, home decor and even technology. In fact, the color “A.I. Aqua” is trending in the fashion world, and was long forecasted to be 2021’s color of the year. Paying homage to the shades of blue featured in many platforms we use each day, A.I. Aqua is versatile, emotional, and said to trigger feelings of clarity.
In the art community, pieces showcasing blue, green, aqua and turquoise shades have been continuously featured on social media. The popularity of this color spectrum among artists is what inspired Liquitex’s new curated set.
The Aqua Acrylic Ink set by Liquitex features a stunning combination of six new and existing colors designed to inspire nature lovers and every artist alike. Reminiscent of water, this convenient collection showcases a gorgeous combination of blues, greens and turquoise.
Turquoise, Phthalocyanine Blue (Red Shade) both join Liquitex’s existing range of Acrylic Inks as new colors. Turquoise is a strong, bright green reminiscent of Viridian Green in its mass tone, and becomes more of an aqua green when diluted. It is brighter than Turquoise Deep and Muted Green, and less yellow than Phthalocyanine Green (Yellow Shade).
Phthalocyanine Blue (Red Shade) complements existing Phthalocyanine Blue (Green Shade), allowing for a beautiful mix of purples with its red undertone and subtle granulation that resembles denim.
These new colors are accompanied by Phthalocyanine Blue (Green Shade), Cerulean Blue Hue, Phthalocyanine Green (Blue Shade) and Turquoise Deep as part of the Aqua Colors set.
With Acrylic Ink’s low viscosity, you can achieve a variety of different techniques, including watercolor, airbrushing, pouring and more on a wide range of surfaces including canvas, paper, board, wood, plaster and fabric.
From nautical seascapes to moody, modern pieces, this new selection of Acrylic Ink provides you with everything you need to bring your vision to life.
