About the Ink from Pennonia's Director:
This particular ink uses the Latin name of the Danube. The river is special because it flows through both of my home countries, Hungary and Romania and in each of them it offers different experiences. While in Hungary, the Danube is often portrayed alongside Budapest, or Visegrád, in Romania it forms the Danube Delta, a wild, majestic place…a journey back to something elemental. Like the river itself, the ink also tries to offer different experiences to whoever uses it and transports them to a magical place of shades and colors.
This ink is a part of a mini-series of shading inks, which work particularly well with brushes, brush pens and dip pens. They truly come to life when used in writing instruments from which the inks can gush onto paper. Of course they are also great for fountain pen sketches and even handwriting but the effect is more subdued thanks to the nature of these shading inks. One mantra that is good to keep in mind: the broader and wetter the nib, the better.
Each bottle is hand labelled using Clairfontaine Clairmail 60 g/m2 white paper and the bottles themselves are pharmaceutical grade amber glass bottles to protect the inks from UV light. The wide mouth of the bottle (4 cm) is excellent for filling any kind of fountain pens and reduces the chances of accidentally tipping them over when filling.
All inks carefully packed into simple-yet-beautiful boxes to keep them safe during transport right until they reach your shelves.
