Liquid Gouache Ink.
An excellent range of highly pigmented, Ph neutral inks. Offering excellent lightfast properties, with rich colour and tone, also a slightly sateen finish. The main constituents are the finely ground pigment, egg
white, honey and gum Arabic. These inks have a very smooth consistency and even flow. All the colours are water soluble and intermixable, for use with reed pens, dip pens, ruling pens and brush. (It would be best to thin them with water for use with Automatic pens and the Airbrush)
All dip pens used (Brause, Gillott, Mitchell and Leondart) were loaded by the following methods, brush, dropper and dipping, all worked successfully. These inks are made from very finely ground pigment and will settle out over time, so shaking or stirring (for preference) of the contents is recommended. They offer excellent lightfast-ness apart from Brilliant Yellow; Magenta Rose and Rose Carmine, which are classed as very good. They do not splutter, drip or blot on the paper, before or during use.
Recommended surfaces: HP watercolour paper; Bristol board or card; good quality writing and/or smooth surfaced papers, also parchment or vellum paper.
The colour range, made from swatches of the inks applied to bright white Bristol board.

This mushroom was painted using the Liquid Gouache inks and Sable/synthetic brushes, on 115 lb Bristol Board.
This ink is a pleasure to use, no chalky or grainy bits, the added benefit - it can be used 'as is,' straight from the bottle.
An excellent range of colours for the Artist, Calligrapher, Illustrator, Illuminator, Decorative, Parchment and Graphic Artist. Being easy to use and clean up, quick drying with an attractive finish to the work.
