White Calligraphy Ink

Handmixed and tested here in the studio we can promise a beautiful opaque white ink that works perfectly on coloured paper especially darker tones including our favourite combo white ink on navy card stock.

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.

White ink (x2)

Ink was not quite thick enough / too thin for use on dark colorplan card. It came out quite translucent even after shaking well.

Hi Charlotte, I am so sorry you found the ink slightly thin, if you leave the lid off for a bit so some water evaporates then it will thicken up. I also advise using the end of your pen or a paintbrush to mix rather than shaking as this gets all the stubborn pigments moving! I hope that helps, please feel free to email me if I can help further! L x
