• I don't know, but I knew this one girl in high school that actually wrote to Papermate to ask if they juice squids to make ink for their pens. We tried to talk her out of it, but she did it anyway. They never wrote back either...
  • Ink is a complex medium, comprising solvents, pigments, dyes, resins, lubricants, solubilizers, particulate matter, fluorescers, and other materials. The components of inks serve many purposes; the ink’s carrier, colorants, and other additives are used to control flow, thickness, and appearance of the ink when dry. Source:
  • Early varieties include Egyptian ink, various natural dyes made from metals, the husk or outer covering of beans or seeds, and sea creatures like the squid (known as sepia)
  • It really depends on the type. There are different varieties. "Pigmented inks Pigmented inks contain other agents that ensure adhesion of the pigment to the surface and prevent it from being removed by mechanical abrasion. These materials are typically referred to as resins (in solvent-based inks) or binding agents (in water-based inks). Dyes in inks Dye-based inks are generally much stronger than pigment-based inks and can produce much more color of a given density per unit of mass... ...dye-based inks are made with solvents that dry rapidly or are used with quick-drying methods of printing..."

  • Pigment, resin, oil, other additives; as stated above depends on type desired. |
