Calligraphy inks - mixed by hand - pastel colours for modern calligraphers


Add fun and colour to your calligraphy practice with hand mixed calligraphy inks in a rainbow of the prettiest colours!

15ml jars of hand mixed inks, from the studio of By Moon & Tide - these are the inks we've been working with for 15 years and they're perfect for modern calligraphy.

Ink is hand mixed from a gouache base and comes with a wooden stirring stick to help you bring it to life for your creative projects!

Contemporary colours include rose gold, pale grey, blush and many, many more. If you don't see the colour you're looking for in the list, DM to see if we can mix it for you!

Please note the ink will settle during shipping and when not in use. (This is because inks are made from pigments and water; pigments are heavier so they sink while the water rises to the top of the jar.) A good shake and a stir with our handy little stirring stick (included) will ensure your ink is ready to write!

Supplied thoroughly wrapped: with stickers to hold lids in place, then wrapped in an airtight gripseal bag and cuddled in bubble wrap for postal adventures!
