60ml Bottle
60ml bottle of Platinum Carbon Black fountain pen ink. This is slightly different than conventional fountain pen ink, because it is pigmented instead of dye-based. This makes it very permanent and lightfast, though it does require more diligent maintenance in your fountain pen. It's ideal for brush pens and fountain pens being used on paper where you need ink to dry on the surface instead of soaking in.

This waterproof, pigment-based carbon ink is highly regarded by artists, and is a standard for ink-washing and mixed media work where you need to draw a line that will later be washed overtop.

Caution: Pigmented inks are intended for use in fountain pens, though they require more diligent maintenance and should not be left to dry out in a pen. It is best to clean it from your pen at least once a week to prevent clogging. Certain pens may handle pigmented inks better than others.

Reviews & Questions

FAQS

Which pens can accept this ink?

Any of these fountain pens will work with bottled ink. Typically, as long as the pen can be filled with a converter, has a built-in filling mechanism like a piston, or can be eyedropper-filled, it can accept bottled ink.

What is shading, sheening, or shimmering ink?

Shading - A common (and often desired) result of a fountain pen ink pooling in certain parts of a letter when writing, so that the color and saturation of the ink appears different within a single letter or word. This characteristic cannot be achieved with ballpoint or rollerball pens and is a very appealing aspect of fountain pen use for those particularly drawn to all the pretty ink colors.

Sheen - Characteristic of a fountain pen ink where when ink pools another color can be seen on top of the ink, especially when looked at in different light angles using certain paper types.

Shimmering - Fountain pen ink that has small particles of glitter mixed in. There is no way to guarantee an ink will sheen, but using a larger nib on a pen will help obtain sheening results in your writing.

Is shimmering ink safe to use in fountain pens?

Yes! Shimmering ink is a great way to add some flare to your writing. We have found that a larger nib will showcase more shimmering particles while writing, but you can use any nib size and shimmering ink. All the ink we sell is safe for use in fountain pens.

My ink smells funny, is it safe to use?

Yes! Ink does not smell good- it usually has a chemical smell, along with other scents such as sulfur, rubber, chemicals or even paint. However, as long as you’re not seeing anything floating in the ink, it is safe to use.

It’s cold and my ink froze, is it safe to use?

Yes, frozen ink will not hurt your pen (after it’s thawed of course!) The issue with ink freezing is a concern because certain glass bottles could break as the water-based ink expands, and then you’d have a mess!

What is your return policy?

We do not accept returns for ink that has been used. Otherwise, we accept returns on unused ink products for up to 60 days from purchase. You can read all our Return Policies here.

To initiate a return, please submit a request at the Return Portal. Our Customer Care team might reach out to you for more information.
