Drawing inks are water-based media made from various plant and mineral colorants. Any drawing ink may vary in tone due to the purity and concentration of its ingredients. They can be composed of dyes and are of low viscosity allowing them to flow smoothly. Historic drawing inks are commonly brown, reddish brown, gray and black. Ink may be applied with a pen, a brush or narrow or broad quills to achieve either linear or tonal effects.
