Deep Brown Color

Daniel Smith walnut ink has a nice, deep brown color. I use it in a broad-edged pen. It flows well from my pen.

I like the old bottle better

I like the old bottle better, but it's the same ink and the same amount. I've been using this ink for many years, to practice mostly: it's reliable and very rarely does it bleed--it does not bleed on the John Neal grid paper, and that's what I use to practice on. Clean up is easy.
Owner Response: All the JNB Practice Pads (plain or graph/grid) use the same non-bleeding paper. The Mastering Copperplate Pad also uses the same paper.

Very smooth, pleasing brown ink. An unexpected quality is that it flows generously and when blotted has a golden glow. Sort of shading, sort of sheening. I like it.

Excellent medium

Add these crystals to water to make a wonderful fluid for writing. The ink can be layered with other watercolours or metallics & may be lifted to create lighter negative shapes or writing. A lovely way to create interesting work.
