"I have the entire collection of Ziller Inks. Wanting to play with them I pulled out the green, blue and white. The blue and green worked great after I thinned the ink to work with my new Zebra G nib: nice, deep rich color. However, when I thinned my white, it became more transparent than I wanted. How do I keep the opaqueness. Has my ink gone bad? I have had it a while. I have been using distilled water per instructions, using a pipette to add the water ten drops at a time."
--Jes in North Carolina

"I just use the Ziller inks straight. Only time I have thinned them is when I forgot and left the bottle uncapped! Then using an eyedropper and distilled water, I added a drop at a time until it returned to the thickness I wanted."
--Elsie H. Wilson

"I go thru so much Ziller White and use it straight from the bottle. I get nice crisp hairlines; it is opaque and flows velvety smooth. I have never thinned it. I have never thinned any of the Zillers at all. I use their red (which is the color of Cartier logo!), blue and brown (chocolate!!) a lot. The Purple is also lovely."
-- Nan DeLuca

"For the colors, the pigments are ground super fine - 2 to 8 microns in diameter. However, the white cannot be ground that fine. Its size needs to be larger - about 1.5 microns or so. If the white pigment was ground smaller, the ink would lose its opacity and became rather transparent. Also, if you dilute the ink too much, it will lose its opacity. Be sure to stir the white frequently when using. Because the pigment size in the white is larger, it will sink quicker to the bottom of the jar. The other smaller pigments stay in suspension much longer but, they too should be stirred before use. As long as the inks are kept in a clean environment and do not become contaminated, they should have a long shelf life."
-- Rich Mungall, Ziller Inks.

I30. Ziller Pen Cleaner
I30. Ziller Pen Cleaner. 1oz.

The makers of Ziller Ink now offer a pen cleaner that is formulated for pigmented acrylic inks (like their popular colored and black inks) as well as other calligraphy inks. To remove dried ink, soak the nibs that need to be cleaned for 30 minutes, then rinse with warm water. Repeat if necessary, and dry nibs thoroughly after cleaning. Ziller Pen Cleaner can also be used to clean fountain pens and technical pens by removing the nib before soaking and filling the reservoir with the cleaner. Occasionally filling the pens with Ziller Pen Cleaner and discharging several times will keep them writing smoothly.

I147. Ziller Ink Thickener

Sometimes your acrylic inks like Ziller are too thin for the paper (or perhaps you have thinned the ink too much). Add this Thickener one drop at a time until the ink is thickened again.
