Draw Tip Tuesday – Waterproof Ink

Posted by Koosje Koene in ArtJournal, Draw Tip, Draw Tip Tuesday, sketchbook on February 27, 2018

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!

People often ask me what kind of ink I use in my Lamy fountain pen.
My favorite black ink for fountain pens is Platinum Carbon black ink. The ink is pitch black, and it dries pretty quickly, so as soon as you’re ready to add watercolors, you can!

There are just a few waterproof inks that are suitable for fountain pens, and I haven’t tried them all and I am certainly not an expert.
But I have great experiences with DeAtramentis Document ink as well, and these inks come in different colors too.

Hi I'm Koosje. I'm an illustrator and art teacher in Amsterdam, where I was born and raised. I went to school to study graphic design, then worked for ten years as an award-winning professional photographer. But eventually my love of drawing and painting took over and I became an illustrator. My illustrations have been published in many Dutch magazines and in 2011, I began blogging and started developing and teaching online art classes. In 2014 I founded Sketchbook Skool, which is a flourishing community of artists from around the world of all skill levels.
