  • VIOLET - the rich Wild Viola Violet is beautiful from large nibs but may need to be lightened with North Wind White for smaller or pointed nibs.
  • The inks give a rich solid coloured stroke - most colours are opaque
  • They can be diluted considerably with water whilst still retaining good colour or thickened, if required, by using the ink thickener
  • They clean up quickly and easily with a little ammonia in the water
  • Ooops, my ink dried out!!! If your bottle of Ziller Ink looks like a dried up river bed:- Break the dried up ink into small pieces and place back in the jar. Add a very small amount of distilled water and stir. The ink will dissolve and reconstitute and you can use it just like before. Dilute as required.
