Watercolourists love its layering and lifting properties. With Tom Norton Walnut Drawing Ink®, you can layer to darken your tones or add water to lighten them, and you can also use a wet brush to lift colour.

Calligraphers use it with both dip and fountain pens and really like that it remains water-soluble even when dried so it easily washes out of their nibs. Encaustic artists use Walnut Drawing Ink for under painting on wood substrates because it is water soluble and soaks into the surface without sealing the wood. Since the wood is not sealed it allows their wax paints to be absorbed into the wood and provide a good archival bond with the wood. Encaustic printmakers use it for the same reason so they can create unique drawings on their printing papers before making their encaustic prints. Pastelists use our ink for underpainting on sanded paper since it will not affect the paper’s texture. And, finally, artists in all media love to draw with it for its beautiful sepia tonal qualities.
