Our Drawing Inks have been used by illustrators since their introduction by Winsor and Newton in the 1890s, 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 also available in two classic sets.
