Dip pens do not store any ink in them, but need to be dipped into ink every few words or lines of drawing. Artists can easily change the colour of ink they are using by simply wiping the nib and dipping the pen in a new colour. Dip pens also allow you to use certain inks which would clog up fountain pens, such as inks with metallic pigments. We stock a range of inks suitable for use with these dip pens including, acrylic ink, drawing ink and calligraphy ink.
