I101. Liquitex Acrylic Ink
I101. Liquitex Acrylic Ink. 30ml bottle.
30 colors. Super fine pigments suspended in a state-of-the-art acrylic emulsion. Like all acrylics, they dry more quickly than traditional calligraphy inks. When dry, they are waterproof for calligraphy applications. Lightfast rating given for each color. Free flowing, no need to dilute for calligraphy, except the Iridescents (metallics) which you can thin with alcohol. Because they are pigmented ink, you will find some colors are superior in a pen than others.
As with all acrylic inks, use pen cleaner or ammonia in water to clean your pens.

H62. Mahogany Pen Holder
Straight wood calligraphy penholder.

How do I insert a calligraphy nib into a penholder that has a metal ring and four prongs?



Your Price Increase Quantity Decrease Quantity

H65. Speedball Colored Pen Holders
These new holders have the classic hourglass shape of regular black Speedball Plastic Pen Holders, but they have a durable, double-coated finish that gives them a softer feel. Available in two colors, Garnet and Sapphire. These holders work with Speedball Nibs A, B, C; Hunt 101, 56, 22, 99, 512, 513.

We have found that the plastic on these holders tends to pick up more dust and dirt than others. To clean these holders, we used warm water. We submerged them and rubbed with a paper towel under the water. Some holders needed two or three washings to remove all dirt and dust. After washing, you can let air dry or dry using a lint free cloth.
