Calligraphy Ink Rich Gold

This handmade ink is made using natural mica powder and natural binders to create a super opaque shimmery ink. Unlike other inks, this has been especially designed to keep the shimmer mixed within the ink whilst in use, to avoid the need to be shaken every 10 minutes.

Available in a range of colours.

Product story

Designed for use with a dip pen, this ink is water based and if it is too thick for your nib, a drop of water can be added to dilute it, or bring it back to the desired consistency. If you need to thicken the ink, you can leave the lid off for the ink to evaporate slightly-we advise overnight.

Due to the nature of the natural mica used, the shimmer can settle over time, so before use it will need to be shaken or mixed. Make sure to wipe the jar and lid clean before closing to avoid the lid sticking.
