Rohrer & Klingner Indian Ink Black 50 ml

Black, Sepia & Bistre

The three tints, black, sepia and bistre which we sell under the name Drawing indian ink, have a long history. They are pigmented indian inks which can be thinned with distilled water and are waterproof and eraser-proof when dry. Thus they are suitable for area coverage, washing techniques and for applying lines. Light and dark effects can be easily achieved.

The indian inks flow extremely well from different kinds of drawing utensils.

They are not only useful for fine calligraphy work and pen drawings but also for liftground etching and picture drawings.
The chemical difference to Calligraphy indian ink, type 29700, is the bonding agent. Drawing indian ink contains a shellac, whilst Calligraphy ing indian ink contains pure acrylates.

Our Sepia Drawing indian ink, which matches the organic sepia tint of squid secretion, and Bistre Drawing indian ink are transparent inks. They are to a large extent light resistant.

In order to achieve deep black strokes which cover well, we especially recommend the Black Drawing indian ink. A special gas soot is used here.

Indian inks should be shaken before using. The Sepia and Bistre indian inks only need to be shaken lightly. The black indian ink needs to be stirred after sitting for a long period of time in order to avoid foam build-up.

The drawing medium (the paper) needs no special preparation before applying the indian inks.
