Winsor & Newton Drawing Ink
Winsor & Newton inks offer outstanding colour brilliance. These drawing inks are dye-based, fast-drying, water resistant, transparent, and instantly recognisable by their classic packaging.
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).
Formulated from a series of soluble dyes in a shellac solution, our drawing inks offer unrivalled strength and colour brilliance.
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.
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.
Drawing Inks have been used by illustrators since their introduction by Winsor & Newton in the 1890’s, where the main requirement is brilliance of colour. Today they 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.
