Acrylic ink and pen ???

I've been looking into acrylic inks and pens/nibs. Are these pens basically a fountain Pen with different nibs/diameters? Do you need a special Acrylic type pen?

Any advice into this is appeciated

I've used the high flow Golden acrylics with traditional dip pens, they work fine. Use it just like you would ink.

Cheers;
Chris

Just plain old dip pens Colleen - or brushes! - because you also can use them (beautifully) like watercolours.

You can use dip pens, traditional fountain pens and I just got a new makers pen. Noodler's Ink. I use black acrylic ink in it and find it works well. You can also use empty Copic marker cases and fill with acrylic ink for a good variety of lines. Montana empty cases work well also.

Re: Acrylic ink and pen ???

I am so sorry not to have replied earlier but after all you comments I ran out to Hobby Lobby. I got a holder, 4 tips (2 round and 2 pointy) and they had a pack of inks for a great price. Yellow, Red, Blue, Green, Black and Brown. I've been having fun playing and trying to find places in the Nov. Challenge Project to use them

Thanks Bunches Guys ! Colleen

I really want to try some empty markers. I was looking forward Montana ones, but any would do!
