Tasmania's Own Fountain Pen Ink
Van Dieman's Ink is Tasmania's only fountain pen ink company. We design, make, bottle and label our inks by hand in micro-batch processes using at least 90% Australian Ingredients and Pure Tasmanian Mountain Spring Water. All our dyes and ingredients are non-toxic, vegan and environmentally friendly. Our fountain pen inks are unique in design and high in quality. Our inks are smooth flowing with little to no feather or bleedthrough, and a wide range of saturation and hue. Van Dieman's has been making inks since 2016 that are suitable for all major brands of fountain pens, as well as dip pens and brushwork.
Van Dieman’s Fountain Pen Ink Diluter and Rehydrator is a multi-purpose fluid for desaturating highly saturated inks, lightening the tone of darkly coloured inks and rehydrating inks that have lost volume and thickened due to evaporation.
Van Dieman's Ink has ALWAYS been Australian Made and Owned in Launceston, Tasmania, by Australian born owners and Inksmiths Belinda and Peter Rix. We have recently applied and been approved for the Australian Made and Owned Logo, so now have the certification to prove it.
Every single bottle contains a minimum of 90% Australian Ingredients, including 100% Tasmanian Natural Mountain Spring Water and a wide array of Australian Made dyes and ingredients, and is hand-made in micro batches, hand bottled and hand labelled right here in our Ink Studio. With Van Dieman's Inks, you can truly know you are supporting Australian Made AND Owned!
This collection of fourteen fountain pen inks includes ten recreations from our original colours of Tasmania range, and four new shimmering inks, with an aim to delight artists and fountain pen ink lovers alike.
This collection, its artwork and its inspiration, pays homage to Tasmania.
