Rohrers Antique Ink (Various colours)

Rohrers Antique Ink (Various colours)

Not suitable for cartridge pens.

Rohrer & Klingner have been making ink since 1892, and by hand, too, using well-established recipes.

Their Antique - or Traditional - ink is available in a range of classic colours, suitable for use with pens, brushes and technical pens. It contains acrylic, which makes it water- and smudge-resistant when dry. Suitable for use on a wide range of surfaces such as drawing paper, cardboard and watercolour paper.

Colours can be blended, and can also be mixed with the Calligraphy inks.

Each bottle contains 100ml of ink.

In Rohrers Traditional Ink range, the experience of decades unites with high quality materials and innovative production methods to 18 tones of high luminance and brilliance.
Particulary notable is the large area of application that goes beyond the work with quills and brushes in drawing and calligraphy.

The comparably high density of pigments allows for consistent results when the ink is applied to technical pens (e.g. Isograph) with a stroke thickness of down to 0,35 mm.

An ideal drying time allows for the use of calligraphy pens (like the Art Pen from Rotring) and all other writing utensils relevant for calligraphy. Furthermore, Rohrer’s Traditional Ink is suitable for airbrush devices.

Eligible painting surfaces cover drawing paper, cardboard, transparent paper, and mattfinished foils of polyester. For the purpose of calligraphy, also more imbibing materials like Ingres deckle-edge paper or watercolour paper are considerable.
Due to the acrylic resin that is used as vehicle, the dried ink is resistant to water and wiping. The abdication of a surfactant ensures an optimal flow without risking the ink to run over or through the paper.

Still, this range of brilliant ink features a good coverage, clear borders and an ideal drying time.
