Pennonia inks are entirely handmade in a small laboratory using high quality ingredients. Drawing inspiration from by personal life events, Hungarian language, tradition and even popular culture, Pennonia presents a collection that is ready to take you on a journey.

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.
