I108. Dr. Martin's Pen White
Dr. Martin's Pen-White

A great white ink for pointed pen work! 1oz dropper bottle. Can be thinned with water if necessary.

"The new ink is Dr Martin's Pen White, which sold out at Odyssey. I loved it so much that I went back to the supply store and bought a second bottle. Pat Blair tried it, and it worked beautifully out of the bottle with her Spencerian script. No mixing required. The dropper made dispensing easy. It did get a bit thicker as I was using it, and I added a bit of water to the dropper. All my pieces (white on dark paper) at Osyssey and at Iampeth were done using that ink. -- Aline Chan

I43. Best Bottle Sumi Ink
Best Bottle Sumi Ink

This popular Japanese sumi ink is good both for beginners and for professional work. Smooth, rich black. Hard to find. One of the popular sumi inks for calligraphy. 6.75 oz, 200 ml bottle.

"The Best Bottle Sumi Ink truly is the best bottle. You can write three to four times longer with a pointed pen nib before the ink dries between the tines enough to alter the writing (this compared to Moon Palace)." C. M.

My test for any ink is to see if it will produce sharp thick and thin strokes at less than one sixteenth inch body height with a #6 Mitchell nib. Stick ink passes that test while most bottled inks don't, especially waterproof inks including sumi ones. The brown bottle sumi [Best Bottle] is non-waterproof, and I find it is better than others. –S.W.

I139-S. Pearl Ex Metallic Calligraphy Set w/ Gum Arabic
I139-S. Metallic Calligraphy Set w/ Pearl Ex & Gum Arabic

Finally, Pearl Ex has created a calligraphy kit for making the pigment (powder) into calligraphy ink. Or you can add the powder directly to ink to give that ink pearlescence and shine. Pearl Ex creates a metallic effect without being a real metal - it will never tarnish or fade. The different particle sizes produce different effects, from a smooth pearly luster to a highly metallic sheen.

The set includes 9 colors that work well with calligraphy, including the new Rose Gold, along with Solar Gold, True Blue, Silver, Aztec Gold, Super Russet, Pearl White, Grey Lavender, and Pink Gold. Also includes three jars of gum arabic powder, instructions for mixing, and a list of nibs that work well with Pearl Ex.

I139. Pearl Ex Color Chart on Black Paper

I139. Pearl Ex Color Chart on White Paper

To make a Pearl Ex ink for calligraphy:
Basic Recipe
Mix 4 parts of pigment with one part gum Arabic (liquid or powder) in a container, add distilled water slowly as you stir until you get the consistency of ink you like.
Exact measurement Recipe
1 teaspoon Pearl Ex pigment
¼ teaspoon gum Arabic (liquid or powder)
1 teaspoon distilled water
Thinner consistency Pearl Ex ink will lie flatter on the paper when dry; a thicker consistency ink (try ½ teaspoon of water) will stand up a bit on the paper when dry, creating a raised effect. Recipe courtesy of Joi Hunt of Bien Fait Calligraphy.

The set colors (and others) are sold in three sizes of individual jars:
I139 3 gram
I139-Half 1.2 oz
I139-4 4 oz

I150. True Walnut Ink
I150. True Walnut Ink.

This rich, sepia-colored ink is made from the hulls of the Black Walnut tree (Juglans nigra), which is found throughout most of the eastern United States. A small amount of isopropyl alcohol is added to help prevent mold growth, but if mold forms, just scrape if off – the ink is still good. It is not suitable for use by children, but you can make your own without added alcohol (see I148. Dried Walnut Hulls or I149. Walnut Ink Kit). Wide-mouth, 1oz glass jar.
