If you are not already familiar with this product, then you are going to love the Niji Splash Ink line of paints developed by artist Karen Elaine Thomas for Yasutomo.
Karen has developed a system for mixing vibrant colors that are versatile and permanent. I love painting products that can be used in a variety of ways and this product is so versatile that it actually is a great basic investment for my many crafting needs.
Niji Splash Ink is a color mixing system that allows the user to not only mix the product’s basic colors to create hundreds of different colors, but also to do some creative shading as well. The inks come in 1-ounce bottles of concentrated acrylic base ink.
The inks can be purchased individually or in sets. The basic set comes with four colors, which are blue, yellow, magenta and black. From those four colors you create an amazing amount of colors.
The kits also come with a recipe card for mixing over 500 different colors.
You can use these inks for watercolor painting, illustration work, art journaling, card making and for use on any porous surfaces. They are so easy to use and the results are great. The high pigment color in these paints makes them perfect for use in jewelry making.
Niji Splash Inks are perfect for painting shrink plastic. You can see how great the jewelry in the above photo looks. The colors are very vibrant and you can see how easy they are for shading and adding depth to designs. The ability to mix colors gives the user the ability to match to a particular fabric or compliment the colors in beads, while creating unique jewelry pieces. Once the paint is dry, it is permanent when used on a porous surface.
