    Information

Wallace Seymour's (formerly Pip Seymour's) handmade inks are made using carefully selected natural ingredients and pigments, hand bound in a binder of gum tragacanth or gum arabic.


These inks are not waterproof, so they can be mixed and diluted with water. They are ideal for both drawing and calligraphy, though we would advise against using them in a fountain pen! They can be applied with a brush or dip pen.


Rebecca Wallace and Pip Seymour formed the company Pip Seymour fine art products in 2011. Their aim was to produce a range of high-quality painting and drawing materials, made under their control and with a shared vision to provide artists with the maximum potential for expression through colour. These inks are a part of that vision of providing high-quality, tried-and-tested artists' media at extremely reasonable prices.


Both artists themselves, Rebecca and Pip have tried out these inks themselves before putting them into production, as well as listening to feedback from others that they trust and respect. They do not sell the materials themselves, nor do they supply large chains, as they value the work of small, independent retailers.


Write Here are proud to be considered a part of Wallace Seymour's network, and to be able to offer you the chance to purchase online, or in person from our shop on the High Street in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, in the UK. We are normally able to offer you same-day delivery on orders placed before 3.00pm.

Wallace Seymour Drawing Ink


Sold in 30ml glass bottles, with glass pipettes.

The ink is available in the following colours:



  1. Indian Ink - black.
  2. Sepia Ink, made from Adriatic Cuttlefish.

    The ink sac found in the swim-bladder of the Cuttlefish yields a black brown "ink". The ink sac is carefully washed and dried, then ground to a fine powder. The material is then bound in a gel paste of Gum Arabic with preservative. Note that this ink is not suitable for Vegans.
  3. Bistre Ink, from Birch and Beech Soot.

    Birch and Beech twigs are burnt and the resultant soot make a slightly tarry powder, which is then bound in a gel paste of Gum Arabic with preservative.
  4. Gall Ink

    Prepared from oak-galls, collected in the Essex countryside during Springtime. The oak-galls are reacted into an iron solution to give a soft brown-black solution, which is then bound in a gel paste of Gum Arabic with preservative.
