Indian Ink 1912 is a waterproof, deep black and document-proof drawing ink. The name goes back to a historical Schmincke product: this shellac ink, also known as Chinese ink, was already available in the Schmincke range in 1912 as Indian Ink. Shellac, a resin, is a historical natural binder that ensures waterproof drying and a special silky sheen of the ink.

The water-based reissue of the Indian Ink with shellac as a binder has a fluid consistency and can therefore be used for writing, painting, and drawing with all kinds of nibs and brushes. The neutral deep black (pigment Pbk7) on a natural basis can be used pure as well as diluted with water on hot-pressed papers (drawing paper) and dries to a silky gloss finish.

Shake before use. Clean tools immediately after use with water (and soap).
Not to be used for fountain pens. Protect against frost.
