Product information

Black Indian Drawing Ink in 3 sizes Waterproof when dry. Not suitable for fountain pen.

A permanent and opaque black, Indian ink mixes well with other colours and adds a cool dense tint. It flows well on the paper, producing strong crisp black lines.

Also known as Chinese ink, Indian ink stems from one of the oldest and most durable pigments of all time: carbon black. Made from any ash, mixed with a binder such as water, liquid or glue, different recipes for carbon black can be found as far back in history as the ancient Egyptians and Greeks.  

Winsor & Newton produce two professional quality Indian Inks: Liquid Indian Ink which is the traditional formula of the Chinese sticks and is not water-proof, and Black Indian Ink which uses a shellac binder allowing the ink to have washes painted on top without bleeding.
