Q&A (5)
Q What colours come with this set?
A

Black, Cobalt, Gold, Silver, Nut Brown, Canary Yellow, Scarlet and Emerald

Q Can these be used with a paint brush as well as a nibbed pen?
A

Yes. You can use a paint brush should you wish to paint with these inks. Ink works especially well using a short handled watercolour brush like this.

Q What paper can I use with ink?
A

Ink can be used on a variety of surfaces, although a smooth surface heavyweight paper is particularly effective when working with ink. Daler Rowney Bristol Board paper is a fantastic example of paper that is both thick and smooth, and creates a satisfying sensation when drawing with your fountain pen.

Q Is the ink water soluble?
A

Yes, these inks are water soluble and can be used alongside water.

Q Hi, does this set come with nibs for left-handers?
A

Dear Jenny Abri,

Unfortunately this set does not supply for left handers, although we have had customers in store explaining the use sandpaper to reangle the nib so they can use with there left hand.

Thank you for your query

2nd August 2015 Reviewed by Sara Khan This product is a pleasure to use. The gold and silver inks were not really necessary. The pen is good and the box is nice to look at and easy to store but the ink bottles do collide when you remove the packaging. One drawback for me was the intensity of the scarlet ink and the inks on a whole were more fluid than I am otherwise used to. I would recommend these for beginners as there is a lot to play with for the money.

1st January 2015 Reviewed by Annie Arrowsmith the box is great for storage. Not so good for carrying as the inks would slip around and chink against each other without packing. Bought this and other inks for ink illustration - a choice of inks would have been better. Gold/silver not really wanted

19th December 2014 Reviewed by Anna Spencer The product performs very well as I would expect from winsor and Newton. The ink colour range was comprehensive and the pens pleasant to use. I also used the ink with brushes and they performed up to all expectations. The presentation box was very well made and far exceeded my expectations - overall I think the set offers real value for money - a nice present perhaps for an artist?
