Uhm...no. Not exactly.

If it filters the exposure at all, it will in terms of neutral density,
not frequency (color). The color is from pigments, whose color is the
result of reflected light, not refracted light as occurs with a BW film
filter. But because it is in solution and is visible, there could
conceivably be a neutral density effect taking place. What would be
interesting is to see just how much of a neutral density effect occurs
and if it varies according to the pigment being used.

Not that I'm set up to do that...8-{
