Rose Gold, Bronze and Pale Gold Calligraphy Ink Trio

This ink comes in a 15ml pot and is made by me in my studio in South East London to the perfect consistency for pointed pen calligraphy.

This ink has been hand mixed 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. 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 are 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 practise papers or art papers, due to the water content it will bleed on low quality papers such as printer paper.

Please note that I have tried my up most to show the true colours in the photos but colours do vary slightly between screens.

I hope you love your ink - if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact so I can sort it out for you.

Enjoy calligraphing!

Shake it up!

Love the inks colours that I received! They Need a LOT of shaking and they very quickly separate again. The metallic colours come up very thick on the page so you must use a drying rack otherwise you work is ruined- even 5/10 mins later!!! A lovely novelty ink.

Hi Bryony, Thanks so much for taking the time to review. We recommend mixing the inks rather than shaking as this gets the pigments moving better as they settle to the bottom due to the fact they are heavier than the water content! I always use the end of my penholder to do so and then every time I re-dip i just give the ink a swill with my nib to keep them all moving! This should also help with the thickness you have mentioned experiencing. A drying rack is definitely not a requirement to using the inks, work dries fine flat - however it is great space saver!!
