Winsor and Newton drawing inks are formulated from a series of soluble dyes in a superior shellac solution. These inks can be applied with brush, dip pen or airbrush and are widely used by designers, calligraphers and artists as well as illustrators.
The color range comprises 24 colours including Liquid Indian Ink, a water based solution of traditional chinese stick ink. This is the standard lettering ink used by calligraphers (which is not water resistant).
The full range of 24 Drawing Ink colours are available in 14ml bottles, each with their own uniquely designed box. Blacks, Gold and Silver are available in 30ml bottles. Black Indian Ink (the 'spider' design) is available in 30ml with a dropper lid.
Fast drying, water resistent & transparent, this allows the overlaying of different colours for attractive optical colour mixtures. All the colours are water resistant except Liquid Indian Ink, Gold and Silver.
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 together should not be stored due to adverse chemical reaction.
The colours can be easily diluted with water to reduce the strength of the colour or to increase its transparency. Distilled water must be used as tap water causes the dye to separate from the binder.
