For years, I searched for the perfect gold calligraphy ink. I needed something opaque, rich, and durable, but all the liquid inks I tried were partially transparent (or had mica particles that sunk to the bottom of the jar and stayed there). As it turns out, the ink I was seeking didn’t turn out to be an ink at all! Once I discovered Finetec watercolors, there was no going back. In this article, I’ll teach you how to use metallic watercolors to create stunning gold calligraphy.
