Winsor & Newton Drawing Ink
Our 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.
Formulated from a series of soluble dyes in a shellac solution, our drawing inks offer unrivalled strength and colour brilliance.
The drawing inks allow overlaying of different colours for attractive colour mixes. All the colours are water resistant except Liquid Indian Ink, Gold and Silver.
All the colours are intermixable. Gold and Silver should be added to other inks in small quantities to avoid thickening. Mixtures of Gold and Silver should not be stored together due to adverse chemical reaction.

This does create some problems, though. The bronze is far heavier than the liquid, so it separates much quicker than most metallics or iridescents - almost immediately, the bronze begins sinking and the concentration quickly degrades. I'd actually recommend using this on a magnetic stir-plate to keep the bronze evenly distributed, otherwise you'd have to shake or stir it every other minute or so.
The bronze also leads to a few issues with the adherence and visual quality; I'd advise burnishing the ink after it dries because it dries with a glittery, rough, speckled quality instead of a smooth, metal sheet. But be careful with the burnishing - too much pressure can actually make the ink flake off.
Overall, I'd recommend this if you want a truly metallic ink that actually looks gilt, but it will have some handling issues.
- opaque (it shows up on black!)
- mesmerizing to look at it
- nice yellow-gold color
- kind of difficult to use at first
- - - ink separates really quickly (like it even separates on your brush if you're slow)
- - - you have to work fast or just keep shaking the bottle as you go
- a little too thick for dip pens; it doesn't flow down smoothly
- - - Other Notable Things - - -
- you can get really nice gradient effects since it separates quickly
- using a brush is easier
- bottle is really small it's 3.5 cm (widest part on bottom) x 4 cm (height)
- bottle is my aesthetic
- apply some sort of lubricant around the threads of the bottle (where you screw the cap on)
- - - it will get clogged and it will have the strength of Arima Kishou if you don't
- - - you can try to get the cap off by soaking it in boiling water if it gets clogged
- - - Overall - - -
Despite all the cons, this is my favorite medium to use. I really love this shade of gold, it's not too rosy or coppery/green. It's kind of hard to use at first; but it adds a nice touch to drawings and doodles. It's also really pretty to look at, overall I recommend this product to anyone who wants a metallic and challenging medium.
Great shimmer, wonderful flow, not too runny but goes on smooth. Dries quicker than most. I haven't compared it to other silver tone inks but I haven't needed to get anything else.
I bought this with the intention to use it for multimedia projects. I also thought I might only need this and not gold paint as well, but I don't think it is a good replacement because it is very runny. (It is ink after all.) In any case, it can be used on some things, but you have to be careful. I tried painting a polymer clay sculpture with it and then painting glazing over it, but the glaze caused the ink to come off even when the ink was dry. I ended up just dripping the glaze on and letting it dry without actually painting it over with the brush. That way it did not come off. But I will probably not be trying that again.
As for the white, it can be used instead of white paint in certain circumstances because it is a bit more opaque, but again you have to experiment a bit. It is harder to draw on afterwards with marker or pen because it is harder and shinier when it dries. (Paint is matte.) But it is a lot smoother than paint when it dries. So it is great if you are not intending to draw on it afterwards.
Even so, if I need other colors of ink (right now I only have white, gold, and silver), I will be buying this brand.
I rarely use a pen for application, but rather, a small brush. I've found doing the following helps immensely:
- shake vigorously
- use an eyedropper to siphon a small amount at a time to work with
- empty eydropper into bottle cap or similar small receptacle
- less waste this way since you're going to need to continuously shake the ink up
