the Speedball Super Black India Ink might not be vegan any longer.
Thank you Emily, for pointing this out to me.
Back in September 2017, I received the information from Speedball that all drawing and lettering products didn’t contain animal ingredients/byproducts.
Unfortunately, Emily discovered shellac being listed on the label of the Super Black India Ink she purchased.
I have contacted Speedball and have taken the ink of my list until I have further information.
A Speedball product update will follow as soon as I hear back from the company.
Here is my information sheet I attached in my mail to them: Criteria cruelty-free and vegan April2018
Dear Emily, I am very sorry to hear this happened to you. I did write you a mail, but unfortunately my computer froze everything, when I hit send and crashed. I tried for 10 minutes to get back in, but it is useless. I write this on a borrowed device and hope you are able to find my reply to your mail here. I did not forget about you. This bugs me too, I was really happy to have found a non-acrylic drawing ink. I attached my information sheet to my inquiry, which also includes a list with animal ingredients. It is possible, the person replying did not know shellac is of animal origin. – Again, I am very sorry this happened to you.
