W&N Drawing Inks, 14ml
Winsor & Newton Drawing Inks have been a favorite among illustrators, designers, calligraphers and artists since their introduction in the 1890’s. Today these inks are formulated from a series of soluble dyes in a superior shellac solution. Silver, gold, white and black, however, are metal-based and formulated with pigments respectively. The versatile Drawing Inks can be applied with a brush, dip pen or airbrush (watch for clogging) on a number of surfaces from paper and board to certain acetates.
All colors are intermixable and can also be easily diluted with water to reduce the strength of the color or to increase its transparency. The dye-based inks are not as lightfast as the pigmented black and white or metal-based silver and gold, though they are fast drying and water-resistant.
Colors available in 14ml (.5oz.) glass bottles; Gold, Silver and Black also available in 30ml (1oz.) bottles
FLAX art & design is a genuine Oakland institution. Opening their first store in 1938, they're now on their 3rd generation of family ownership and have recently relocated to a beautiful new Downtown location that could best be described as a "toy store for artists." 80 years in and they're still putting art and community front and center. You can visit them at their own site here, or find more of their products right here on Keep Oakland Alive.
