Good news everyone! These lovely inks are available from Pennonia as well starting from today. If you’re looking for permanent inks that don’t break the bank, are not iron gall and also have great colors then you found them. These can serve as alternatives to Rohrer & Klingner’s Dokumentus line which are basically the Bugattis of permanent inks with their ISO 12757-2 certification.
I’ll let Rohrer & Klingner describe their inks:
sketchINK® is a range of 10 inks for fountain pens. The broad range of colours offers outstanding versatility to its users. Not only can it be used on stylographs: sketchINK® can be used with quills or brushes as well. Moreover, it is exceptionally waterproof and lightfast. Nano pigments are used to enable an optimal ink flow. This makes sketchINK® perfect for drawing fine outlines, which take less time to dry and get ready to be painted over. For colouring, sketchINK® can be mixed with water to create brilliant highlights, making it the ideal companion for Urban Sketchers. Designers, graphic artists and architects will appreciate it as well.
Note that waterproof inks can cause clotting in fountain pens. To address this and for the daily care of your drawing equipment, we recommend that you clean your pens thoroughly after using the ink with either water or with a pen cleaning solution.
I did some glamour shots of these lovely bottles 😀 Check them out at the bottom 😉
What’s your favorite color out these? I’m personally in love with Marlene and Emma especially because I also love Alt-Goldgrun from them. Jule is also pretty interesting being a dull burgundy it feels like something you would expect from 100 year old ink to look like on some letter you found in grandma’s attic.
