Iron Gall Calligraphy Ink
MODERN CALLIGRAPHY SUPPLIES: HOUSE-MADE IRON GALL INK
Our house made Iron Gall ink. Iron Gall ink has been used for centuries, we make ours in-house in our Leicestershire studio in small batches, using Aleppo Oak Galls.
Iron Gall ink, looks paler when initially written and then dries quickly to a luscious rich black. It's a brilliant beginners ink, as works beautifully and will give you lovely fine hairlines and rich thick strokes. As with most inks, shake well before use. If you find it too thick particularly near the end of the pot, you can always add a few drops of water to achieve the desired consistency.
TIP: It's also a good idea before put the lid back on after using it, to wipe the jar rim with a tissue, to avoid it sticking
Iron Gall ink contains Ferrous Sulphate - keep out of reach of children.
As with all calligraphy ink, do not ingest.
