Rousy Iron Gall Ink
I’m proud to offer you the best iron gall ink I have ever tried! Iron gall ink is a traditional ink that has the perfect liquid viscosity to make teeny-tiny upstrokes and thick, rich downstrokes. It’s been used for centuries and was a favorite of monks and the Vikings (learn more here). Here are some things to note about Rousy iron gall ink:
- Simon Rous of scribblers.co.uk is the mastermind behind Rousy iron gall ink’s formula. He ships me a concentrate, then I add filtered Rocky Mountain water and decant the ink into jars.
- Iron gall ink starts off as a gray tone, then it undergoes an oxidization process on your paper to turn into a gorgeous dark black.
- This ink is best for calligraphers who have a good grasp on the foundations of calligraphy. It is easy to use, but beginners might find it difficult to manage since it’s so watery.
- I strongly recommend adding this ink to your collection! It’s my favorite black ink ever because it adds elegance and class to any type of calligraphy.
This listing is for one 30 ml jar of iron gall ink.
In case you’re wondering: yes! Iron gall ink is more acidic than many of its inky peers, and it may “eat” your nib a bit quicker than other inks. As per usual, make sure you have a couple of extra nibs on hand to use when your nib goes kaput. I promise: the slightly increased wear on your nibs is worth it. You’re going to love this ink!
