Genuine Dragon's Blood Ink, a handmade alcohol ink in two sizes

$8.00



Dragon's Blood Ink is a warm red alcohol ink. It is made from genuine Dragon's Blood pigment.

Dragon's Blood is an alcohol ink that is a traditionally used pigment in Medieval times. It fell out of favor quickly because the color is not lightfast. This pigment is very fugitive, meaning the color changes over time, going from a bright red ink when freshly made to more of a mellow warm brownish-red over time. I apply it with a fine brush in my own work. It cleans up with rubbing alcohol.

This ink is available in two sizes: 10 ml bottles and 1 oz bottles, both amber to protect from light and with droppers for ease of use.

Ruby Mountain Paint Company specializes in micro-batch, artisanal watercolors using pigments sourced from around the world. Our paints are always non-toxic, lovingly hand poured into whole pans, half pans, or bottle caps. We make high quality paint and art supplies for all types of artists. Each color is made from pure, artist-grade pigments and our own all natural binder formula, which includes gum arabic, local honey, and a time-honored, essential oil as a preservative. Each pigment is mulled by hand until it is the proper, luscious consistency. Each pan is poured once, slowly cured, then topped off so that the pans are as full as possible. Your order is packaged mindfully, using eco-friendly packaging and shipped to you from our studio in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.

What a lovely color and fun ink! Definitely smells like alcohol, but that’s to be expected. The dropper bottle makes it easy to dispense just the amount I need for a given project.
