Calligraphy Ink Iron Gall

This Iron Gall ink is the perfect black ink for modern calligraphy. Made using natural ingredients, this ink follows a medieval recipe with a modern twist. Traditionally Iron Gall ink erodes nibs quickly due to it's high acidity, however this ink has powdered egg shell added to balance the Ph, meaning nibs last much longer.

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.
