Coral Calligraphy Ink

Inspired by our favourite beach tones coral is one of our beach collection inks along with Azure, Sunshine and Seafoam. It is our go to summer nail polish colour so we couldn’t resist making it into vibrant ink.

Did you know you can customise ink trio and make a saving?

Our handmade ink comes in a 15ml pot and is made in our studio in South East London to the perfect consistency for pointed pen calligraphy.

All inks have been made for use with a dip pen. Due to the nature of the materials used the pigments can settle so before use it will need a shake or a mix (use the end of your pen if it is stubborn) After use, wipe round the edges to stop the ink drying and the lid sticking.

If you find the ink is too watery for the consistency that you like then leaving the lid off for a little bit will enable some of the water will evaporate. You can also add a touch of gum arabic to the ink to thicken it slightly.

Over time the water in your ink will naturally evaporate so you may have the add a drop more.

Every batch of inks is tested by myself with a Nikko G nib. If you are using a different nib then the results may vary slightly but all pointed nibs should be fine with these inks.

This ink is for use with good quality practice papers or art papers, due to the water content it will bleed on low-quality papers such as printer paper.

Please note that the colours in photos can vary slightly between screens.

You can find our whole range of handmixed coloured inks here.

More suspension less solution

I didn't realise the ink would need shaking quite so regularly. It's more of a suspension than a dissolved pigment. I seemed to need to dip my pen quite often too. Gorgeous colour in the pot but didn't seem as rich on white or black paper. Will give it another go but I wish I'd only bought one to start with.

Hi Satvinder, Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review, it sounds like you haven't mixed your ink well enough - The coloured pigments settle at the bottom as they are heavier than the water so they need a really good stir before use. I use the end of my penholder (something hard works better than a brush!) and really dig them up to mix. I hope this helps. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need anymore help. L x
