Calligraphy Ink: 12 Gorgeous Designs

Categories tagged for this post Discover & LearnHow it WorksIndustries

Cursive may be going out of style, but calligraphy isn’t. This ancient art involves the use of broad-tipped pens and high-quality ink to creating intricate lettering designs. The majority of calligraphy inks are water-based, although some high-end waterproof and acrylic inks are popular. For standard water-based inks, dyes or pigments are mixed with water to make inks in a variety of colors. A calligrapher’s pen is dipped in the ink and the pen’s nib slowly transfers the ink to the paper.

The result? Beautiful pieces of calligraphy like these.
