A non-waterproof, carbon black ink for dip pens. Our most popular ink for classes. Recommended for copperplate (add a few drops of gum arabic). Perhaps the best ink for calligraphy for a beginner; it will cause the beginner the fewest problems. This ink will bleed more readily than other inks. If bleeding is a problem, try Sumi Inks. 2.5 oz.
Quantity discounts start at 6 & 12.
"For broad-pen writing, I add gouache to Higgins Eternal. Gouache gives Eternal some needed body. It doesn't necessarily have to be black gouache. Indigo or a dark red add an interesting hue to the result. In a quarter ounce of Eternal, I add about a 3/8-inch bead of gouache from a tube. Eternal doesn't give me the hairlines I want in pointed pen work, so for that I much prefer iron gall or walnut ink". - Bob Hurford
I70. Moon Palace Sumi Ink Moon Palace Sumi
The Ink is now in a bottle with a Gold Label
While the packaging is a bit different, this is the highly sought after and highly recommended Japanese Sumi Ink. For both broad edge and pointed pen work. Dries waterproof. A great calligraphy ink.
"I like Moon Palace better, but both Moon Palace and Best Bottle are beautiful inks. The Moon Palace has a slight sheen to it, which I like. Michael suggested this ink to me so please tell him I said, "thank you". I just finished a job of 200 invitations with Moon Palace and the ink is beautiful. I did not dilute the ink.
A client just brought me invitations (slick paper) to address. This bride knew going into this that I probably couldn't do pointed pen. However, for fun, I tried the Sumi inks and to my surprise they worked pretty darn good. I usually have to use a sharpie on slick envelopes, yikes!!!" --Clair F., Jan 2011.

WNGDP-S. W&N Gouache: Double Primary Set Winsor & Newton Gouache: Double Primary Set
Colors (all Series 1):
Sheila Waters teaches color mixing using a double primary set: a warm and cool of each of red, blue and yellow. With the six primaries you can mix brighter colors. (a) The cool yellow tends toward green. The cool blue tends toward green. These two are used for mixing all the colors between yellow and blue. This includes all of the greens, greenish yellows such as chartreuse, and greenish blues such as teal. (b) The warm red tends toward orange. The warm yellow tends toward orange. These two are used for mixing all the colors between yellow and red (oranges and all orange-reds and orange-yellows). (c) The warm blue tends toward purple and is mixed with the warm red for the purplish colors. Winsor & Newton is our most popular gouache and is highly recommended. It is excellent for calligraphy.
For a lightfast Double Primary Set, purchase WNGPDP-S. It contains a similar palette of warm and cool colors, but the pigments are more permanent when exposed to light. The colors are not exactly the same, but they mix in a similar fashion.
