Kremer-made artist inks consist of a shellac soap binder and extra finely dispersed pigments. Shellac becomes shellac soap by adding borax dissolved in warm water. The pigments are then dispersed very finely and added to the shellac solution. The high concentration of pigments in these inks makes them very rich in colour.
Undiluted, the inks dry lustrous and water-insoluble. This luster is lost when the ink is diluted with water - it is recommended that you use 180240 Kremer Shellac Ink Diluter (sold separately) when diluting the inks to maintain luster.
