I08. Higgins Eternal Ink
I08. Higgins Eternal Ink.

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

SG27. Schmincke Calligraphy Gouache
SG27. Schmincke Calligraphy Gouache

This difficult-to-find German gouache is highly recommended by Michael Sull for its brightness, smooth flow, and lightfastness. Because mica instead of metal particles is used, the metallics will not darken over time, and because the mica can be more finely ground, it flows through a pen much better. Also recommended by Katrina Berry and others. Schmincke Gold Pearl is our bestselling gold gouache. 20 ml tubes.

When using a fresh tube, squeeze out the clear stuff (glycerin) until you get dense pigment. This glycerin helps keep the gouache from drying in the tube but will keep your work from drying as well. This gouache reconstitutes easily and quickly if it has dried in your pen or on your palette.

Choose color: Opaque White, Lemon Yellow, Cadmium
Yellow Light, Vermilion Red, Madder Red, Ultramarine
Deep Blue, Paris Blue, Chromium Oxide Green, Burnt
Sienna, Jet Black, Gold Pearl, Red Pearl, Silver.

*Ivory Black has been discontinued*
