Drawing Inks

Winsor & Newton Drawing Inks have been used by illustrators since their introduction by Winsor & Newton in the 1890's, 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.

The range comprises over 25 colours including Liquid Indian Ink, a water based solution of traditional chinese stick ink. This is the standard lettering ink used by calligraphers (which is not water resistant).

For more information on each of the colours, download the product colour chart (PDF version) or visit our Shop page for Drawing Inks.
