Polish term or phrase: atrament vs. tusz
sorry for a two in one item - i'm asking just out of curiosity, because neither the papermaking dictionary nor the printing dictionary I have give a definitive answer on how to differentiate between the two in English.

Any clues?

Thanks.

writing ink vs. drawing ink
Explanation:
They are both called INK.
But if you need to differentiate:

WRITING INK = ATRAMENT
DRAWING INK = TUSZ
