Winsor & Newton Drawing Inks

Winsor & Newton Drawing Inks have been used by illustrators since their introduction by Winsor & Newton in the 1890’s, where the main requirement is brilliance of colour. Today they are formulated from a series of soluble dyes in a superior shellac solution. These inks can be applied with brush, dip pen or airbrush and are widely used by designers, calligraphers and artists as well as illustrators.

Drawing Inks are used where brilliance of colour is the main requirement. A range of 26 colours is available offering outstanding brilliance and transparency. Dye based inks do not possess the lightfast quality of pigments. All colours are intermixable. For a quick video guide on the difference between Calligraphy Inks and Drawing Ink, please click here.

Dip pens and brushes are recommended for application of Drawing Inks. Clean with water during working. Should the inks dry, methylated spirits can be used to dissolve the colour, followed by washing with soap and warm water. Liquid Indian Ink, a solution of traditional Chinese stick ink use by calligraphers is not water resistant.
