I am in the middle of developing a full-blown ink obsession. Seriously, it is terrible. I have a bunch of different colors of India ink, Liquitex acrylic ink, Golden high flow acrylics which can double as ink.. it is getting out of hand. I may or may not have just ordered some metallic inks. I will neither confirm nor deny.
I have been happily using my dip pen with my billions of inks, but I am not so fond of dipping straight out of the bottle. Plus I am PARANOID about spilling an entire bottle of India ink all over the place. That brings us to this Wednesday’s Wednesday Wow: Dinky Dips!
Everything about them is ridiculously adorable. Even their name is cute! I bought them from John Neal, Bookseller, and then I immediately ordered three more bags of refills. You can fill them with ink and never have to dip straight out of the bottle again. The lids just pop on and off – I would like it better if they screwed on and off instead, but that’s totally not a deal-breaker.
Since the holder only holds four at a time, I am probably going to recruit the manflesh and his drill (that sounds way dirtier than it is) to make a holder that will contain the whole collection. Hm. Maybe not. That could get unwieldy.
