Abraxas Writing and Drawing Ink, Golds


"There comes a steam and bubble out of big stony sauce-pans in the ink-kitchen of Abraxas. In the workshop diffuses a fragrance of roses. The inkmaker produces his famous red love ink that flows fine out of the pen and fragrance magnificent. Like in fairy-tales of 500 and more years of age you think? But no; a daily reality in the manufacture of Abraxas."

We hope this self-penned colourful and quaint description alongside this dreamlike picture, where you can find the inkmaker's pots and vials, will convey the same feeling of magic and treasure imparted when using this special elixir of colour. Made in Basel, Switzerland, these inks are made from natural ingredients, and are carefully and masterfully packaged using cork, painted labels, string and wax seals. This ink could not be further from being mass-manufactured.

The resulting ink is complex and subtle in colour, with unusual tones not necessarily found among other makers. 

Please take care when using inks - none of the metallics or golds are suitable for fountain pen; they are exclusively for drawing or writing with dip pens and brushes.
