About the inks we sell

Winsor and Newton Drawing Inks

They can be applied with a brush, dip pen or airbrush. The 26 colours include Liquid Indian Ink; a water based solution of traditional Chinese stick ink. This is the standard lettering ink used by calligraphers (this is not water resistant).

Brilliant Colours Formulated from a series of soluble dyes in a shellac solution, our drawing inks offer unrivalled strength and colour brilliance.

Colour Mixing The drawing inks allow overlaying of different colours for attractive colour mixes. All the colours are water resistant except Liquid Indian Ink, Gold and Silver.

Fully Intermixable All the colours are intermixable. Gold and Silver should be added to other inks in small quantities to avoid thickening. Mixtures of Gold and Silver should not be stored together due to adverse chemical reaction.

Winsor and Newton Calligraphy Inks

Our range of calligraphy inks has 18 brilliant and lightfast colours. The inks have been formulated with carefully chosen pigments to ensure maximum colour brilliance. Single pigments have been used where possible to enable clean colour mixes.

Versatility for Pen or Brush 14 colours (blue capped bottles) are suitable for dip pens, fountain pens, technical pens and airbrushes. These colours are transparent, thinner in formulation, fully intermixable and have a satin finish. Four colours (red capped bottles) are thicker, opaque and should be used with a dip pen or brush; this also applies to any mixtures using these colours. The black and white inks have a matt finish.

Permanence Winsor & Newton Calligraphy Inks have a permanence rating of AA or A, but are not waterproof.

Flow The Inks are non-clogging and have good flow characteristics when used in fountain or dip pens. We recommend that you test the inks with your chosen pen to ensure optimum performance.

Daler-Rowney FW Ink

Inks are a more versatile medium than you might first imagine. The expressive fluidity and strong lightfast colour of acrylic inks are suitable for use by fine artists, illustrators, graphic designers, calligraphers, decorative artists and hobbyists, to name but a few.

FW Artists’ Ink can be applied with airbrushes, technical pens or traditional brushes, making them ideal for producing technical illustrations and finely worked drawings. They lend themselves equally well to clearly defined line work or broad washes of subtle, water-resistant colour.

FW Pearlescent colours can also be used to dazzling effect, especially where highly decorative elements are required to illuminate basic letter forms. Pearlescent inks can also be used to add shimmer and shine to decorative arts such as greeting cards, seasonal decorations, mounts and frames.
