In a range that includes 26 colours of ink especially formulated for drawing (line and wash) and 18 colours of ink for Calligraphy Winsor and Newton Inks are certainly best in class!
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).
Brilliant Colours Formulated from a series of soluble dyes in a shellac solution, our drawing inks offer unrivalled strength and colour brilliance.
Colour Mixing 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.
Fully Intermixable 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.
Winsor and Newton Calligraphy Inks
Our range of calligraphy inks has 18 brilliant and lightfast colours. The inks have been formulated with carefully chosen pigments to ensure maximum colour brilliance. Single pigments have been used where possible to enable clean colour mixes.

These colours are transparent, thinner in formulation, fully intermixable and have a satin finish. Four colours (red capped bottles) are thicker, opaque and should be used with a dip pen or brush; this also applies to any mixtures using these colours. The black and white inks have a matt finish.
Permanence Winsor & Newton Calligraphy Inks have a permanence rating of AA or A, but are not waterproof.
Flow The Inks are non-clogging and have good flow characteristics when used in fountain or dip pens. We recommend that you test the inks with your chosen pen to ensure optimum performance.
