What is Daler-Rowney Calli?

Daler-Rowney Calli is a collection of seamless, water-resistant calligraphy inks that has long been favoured by artists. Specifically optimised for calligraphy work, Calli ink is one of the most effective choices on the market for both professional and amateur creatives. 

Daler-Rowney Calli

Calligraphy requires a delicate touch, and poor-quality ink can rapidly ruin a beautiful piece of work. Created specifically with the artist in mind, Daler-Rowney Calli ink is ideal for calligraphy work as the acrylic-based formula allows for optimal flow from all pens and brushes. 

In addition to exceptional ink flow, each of Daler-Rowney’s acrylic inks are highly pigmented and promises a vibrant and impactful image every time. Allowing artists to create careful and deliberate strokes, Daler-Rowney’s Calli inks are an excellent choice for traditional calligraphy. 

With high permanence and a non-clogging formula, Daler-Rowney ink ensures your artwork is always free from smudging or bleeding. Calligraphers will appreciate the strength and opacity of all Daler-Rowney acrylic inks, with Calli ink proving especially viable for use in illustration and mixed media work. 

Though Daler-Rowney ink is marketed to artists, writing purists will also appreciate the depth of colour that Calli ink provides. Whether writers are looking to pen their first novel or wish to elegantly sign a handwritten letter, a Daler-Rowney Calli ink set serves as the perfect indulgence.

Tools within the Daler-Rowney Calli collection

Within the Daler-Rowney Calli ink collection, there are six unique colourways; Scarlet, Burgundy, Blue, Green, Brown, and Jet Black. Though each Daler-Rowney acrylic ink can be used separately for a bold look, all colours are fully intermixable. Much like acrylic paints, Daler-Rowney ink can be mixed to create a variety of colours for any project. Therefore, the artistic possibilities are truly endless with the Daler-Rowney Calli collection. Packaged in sturdy 29.5ml glass jars, they are also an ideal size for frequent use. 

For a perfect finish, pair the Calli ink collection with Daler-Rowney’s expert calligraphy paper. Available in white, buff, and stone, this high-quality calligraphy paper affords the artist a more intense colour payoff. With a surface that allows optimum absorption of smooth and sweeping strokes, it’s an ideal companion for any Daler-Rowney ink set.
