Winsor & Newton Drawing Ink - Calligraphy Sets

Winsor & Newton Drawing Inks are formulated from 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. These brilliant colours are fully intermixable, and they are easily diluted with distilled water and can overlay different colours for new effects and shades. These are fast drying, water resistant and transparent and have excellent adhesion on most surfaces. The Inks are extremely vibrant with unrivalled strength of colour and brilliance. Colour intensity tends to be stronger in dye-based inks and the shellac binder leaves a brilliant sheen to the colours.

Good, old fashioned drawing ink label has been individually designed by British Illustrator Michael Peters and contains a unique and whimsical illustration that features the colour itself.

The range comprises of 26 magnificent colours including Liquid Indian Ink a water-based solution of traditional Chinese stick ink. Each Ink comes in attractive 14ML glass bottle with a screw top making it easy to dip nibs and brushes on it. The oversized bases make it difficult to overturn and spill the ink. The Liquid Indian Ink, Black Indian Ink and Gold and Silver Ink also come in 30ml bottles.  Black Indian Ink is the most popular and available in a larger 250ml and 500ml bottle.

Brilliant Colours

Inks are unsurpassed in strength and brilliance of colour. Except for Liquid Indian Ink, Gold and Silver, all W&N inks are fast drying, water-resistant and transparent. That means it can overlay different colours to create texture and depth.

Water Resistance & Bleeding

Winsor & Newton Drawing Inks are all water resistant apart from Liquid Indian Ink, Gold and Silver. However, all the coloured inks are made from dyes which can bleed out into subsequent washes. The degree of bleeding varies from colour to colour and with the amount of water used so it is recommended to test chosen colours before using them on artwork.


Drawing inks are made from dyes and are very bright and transparent but most of them fade over time. They are not lightfast the lightfastness of a colour is how permanent it is or how unaffected by light it is. There are two exceptions however, Liquid Indian Ink and Black Indian Drawing Inks which, although not officially classified, are archival which means they are permanent.

Fully Intermixable

All Winsor & Newton Inks are fully intermixable and since most of them are also mixable with water, can easily create a water colour effect. Even better, the inks will still provide a strength of colour that can’t achieve with paint. Gold and Silver should be added to other inks in small quantities to avoid thickening. Mixtures of Gold and Silver should not be stored as they may have an adverse chemical reaction.
