With paint that is versatile and encourages experiments, artists can broaden their skills. A fantastic opportunity for KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink. Our acrylic ink is a highly pigmented acrylic colour with a very liquid consistency. These properties make the ink superb for use in modern acrylic painting. In this post, we tell you about all the things you can do with KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink, how best to use it, and give you lots of other tips on using acrylic ink.

What do you use KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink for?

The colour-intense acrylic ink in the glass bottle instantly inspires you to start painting and experiment. No wonder, as you can use the ink for loads of different techniques. We give you some suggestions under Question 2.

KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink is also the medium contained in the KREUL Triton Acrylic Marker. It's just filled in a bottle. So you can use the acrylic ink to refill an acrylic marker of the same colour. Perfect to get an empty marker up and working again in no time and to avoid plastic waste. Find out more about

Another way to use the acrylic ink is to mix individual paint colours. For this, you need an acrylic paint as a base, like, for example, SOLO GOYA Triton Acrylic in white. Just add a few drops of KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink to a large splodge of acrylic paint and you get an interesting mixed shade. Perfect for mixing greys, turquoises, beiges and many other colour shades. An easy way to enlarge your paint palette.


What techniques are possible with KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink?

All the acrylic painting techniques that need a very liquid colour with high-pigmented quality. The following techniques work perfectly with KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink:

•    Spray effects, forming a galaxy of large and small splashes of paint
•    Water-insoluble watercolour effects if you apply the acrylic ink to a wet surface
•    For writing and drawing with a nib; for expressive hand lettering
•    Direct colour application from a pipette for flowing colour
•    For graduated colour washes
•    For dot painting
•    For easy acrylic pouring effects
•    For painting on surfaces other than paper or canvas for a change. You can use the water-insoluble acrylic ink for painting on stone, wood, slate and more. Even for decorative items outdoors – and all without protective varnish.

KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink is fantastic for combining with other acrylic products – that’s mixed media. Here we show how to do this

Can you make acrylic ink by thinning acrylic paint with water?

Unfortunately, not. Even if our acrylic paints, like SOLO GOYA Acrylic, can be thinned with water. The colour becomes more transparent and is less opaque. As water also stretches the pigments and the binder, the brilliance of the mix is lessened If you add too much water to the acrylic paint, the "watered down" paint dries unevenly on the surface and puddles are formed.

KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink behaves completely differently. The acrylic ink is as liquid as water, but still colour-intense with good coverage. It contains other components that you can't substitute just by adding water. KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink is therefore not the same as acrylic paint thinned with water.


What do you have to bear in mind before you start painting with KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink?

Our acrylic ink has high pigmentation. The pigments are heavier than the other components in the formulation and settle at the bottom of the glass bottle. So before you start using KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink, shake the bottle vigorously for a couple of minutes. It’s quicker if you take the pipette out and stir the sediment with the shaft end of a paintbrush.

How do you dose the liquid acrylic ink correctly?

KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink comes in a glass bottle complete with a pipette. This makes it easy to dose the acrylic ink. Take the pipette out of the bottle and squeeze the top. Then put the pipette back in the bottle and release the top. The vacuum causes the acrylic ink to be automatically sucked up into the pipette.
We recommend that you don’t squeeze the pipette while it is in the bottle as air bubbles can form. If air bubbles do form, just wait a few minutes until the bubbles disappear on their own.
