Jacquard Pinata alcohol inks open up a huge number of possibilities for design. These alcohol inks contain high quality, lightfast dyes which produce vibrant transparent colours. Pinata inks dry quickly on any non-porous surface including ceramics, metal, glass, stone, polymer clay, silver clays, resin, fibreglass and plastic. They are also effective as a stain for wood, leather and other porous surfaces.
This indelible permanent ink has excellent surface adhesion and is impervious to water. Jaquard Pinata Colors can be used to paint designs on crockery, vases, and even windows.
