Trio of calligraphy inks - colours of your choice

Trio of calligraphy Inks in colours of your choice. 

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!

Disappointed

I was so looking forward to receiving the inks for my Christmas cards and tags, but 2 out of the 3 inks were unusable and very hard to work with. The copper and silver were so thin I couldn’t do anything so I followed advice and left the kids off for days but all that happened was that I lost liquid and it never thickened enough to use. I then was advised I’d have to buy another product to thicken them, but by then it was too late to make my cards. Very disappointing!

Hi Rebecca, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review and apologies that you struggled with the inks. It sounds like they probably weren't mixed well enough prior to using. We advise using the end of your penholder to really dig up the pigments as the settle at the bottom. In future please feel free to email us with any problems you might experience we are more than happy to help. Lauren x

Highly recommend

I chose navy, sage and lilac and love all three. They are the perfect consistency and the colours are exactly how I expected them to be! Very quick delivery and lovely recyclable packaging.

Inked

Such beautiful colours (I chose raspberry, metallic purple and sage), really good quality hand made and simple but elegant packaging. No leaks or damages during transit and whole order came very quick even with delays due to covid19. I am going to end up so many different colours I won't which one to choose
