Jacquard developed these inks specifically for airbrush applications. We've tried them and find they work great for marbling and faux-tie dye too! If marbling, keep in mind that there are mica flakes in the metallic colors so they won't float well on most sizing.

These deep, brilliant colors airbrush like a dream on any surface including fabric, leather, wood, plastic and metal. Jacquard colors are bright, clear, intermixable, and acid free.

Once dry and properly heat set on fabric, Jacquard Airbrush paint is permanent and indelible in water.

• Ready to Airbrush right out of the bottle

Jacquard developed these inks specifically for airbrush applications. They are available in Transparent, Opaque and Metallic colors, all of which are water based and intermixable. The colors will work on almost anything, including some fabrics, leather, wood, plastic, and metal. For use on non-porous surfaces, some light sanding may be required, and bare metal may need a base coat of primer. Heat setting with a heat-gun or dry iron is recommended for permanency.
Because they are thin, they can also be used for a non-toxic chemical free faux tie-dye and marbling. See our How To section - Tie-Dye with Fabric Paint.
All colors are non-toxic and conform to ASTM D-4236.

Surface Preparation: All surfaces must be clean. Leathers and fabrics must be washed to remove dirt, waxes, sizings and conditioners. Non-porous surfaces, like metal and plastic, may require light sanding. Bare metal may require a primer.

Application: Apply in light even coats. Avoid over-saturating the surface. Use approximately 40 psi and nib size should be no less that 0.5 mm. Paints are intermixable to get a full range of colors. Heat set paint with heat gun on hard surfaces. For fabric, heat set with a dry iron at appropriate setting for fabric for 30 seconds.

Varnish Instructions: (Optional) After airbrush paint has completely dried, spray varnish in a light even coat. Repeat, if desired, after first coat has thoroughly dried.

Tips for Airbrushing

  • Before starting on your piece, check to make sure all of your equipment is working properly. Check for bent needle or tip and replace if necessary. Make sure that the compressor is functioning correctly and you have the air pressure adjusted to where you want it.
  • Be sure you are using the correct size tip, especially with the Metallic Colors.
  • Don't let colors sit too long in the airbrush without use, causing paint to dry in the airbrush.
  • Place caps on bottles when not in use so they do not dry out.
  • Dilute Colors with water to thin paints slightly.
  • Be sure to clean your equipment thoroughly when you are finished.
  • Transparent Colors are best on white and light colored surfaces.
  • Opaque and Metallic Colors work on either light or dark surfaces.

these paints are great for airbrushing or marbling. I didn't have any problems with the paint clogging my airbrush and the opaque metallic colors come out brilliant.

Initially I was having a hard time with these colors but I discovered that I mixed my sizing wrong. Mixed up another batch of sizing and started over. Was very happy with the vibrancy of the colors and am happy with the results. I also found that this brand mixes well with other types of marbling acrylics. I especially liked the "solidness" of the colors.

Used these for marbling. They worked beautifully but had to be careful of the amount of water added. If they were too heavy they'd sink but they were beautiful

Ever since the new formula came out this Spring I have had lower quality and faded colors on silk especially with red. Black always chips. I've marbled indoors and out with high and low humidities this year. I tried bright transparent and opaque and have consistently poor results.
