Do you have Ink Splash Fever?
Do you find yourself with a half-syringe full of diluted ink, completely unable to send it down the drain?

And instead, splatter it onto some paper?

Or maybe you keep a paper towel handy while cleaning your pens...and once it's covered in ink it looks kind of beautiful.

Maybe you do something else a bit abstract with your fountain pen inks - like make little puddles of ink to ogle?

 

Please snap a photo and share with your fellow ink-o-philes.

 

All splishes, splashes, dribs, drabs, drips, drops, splatters, puddles, smears, fingerprints, and other inky messes are welcome!

Here, diluted Noodler's Sunrise frolics with some drips of diluted Noodler's Dragon's Napalm.

I smeared some of the Sunrise around with a cotton swab I had previously used to clean up some ink, which made a pretty nice green on the paper!

:)

My pen cleaning paper towel keeps a piece of my inking-up history, enabling me to go back in time and remember the good old days when I still had Copper Orange, or when I in a panic dabbed up a few gobs of permanent green acrylic dip pen ink. Like old scars, you can remember the source of every splatter. And in this case, some cat hair that makes a lovely addition every time you wipe your pen...

Only the ones with ink splotches and only until I scan them.

@Noihvo -

I know what you mean about remembering things from the paper towel.  This one reminds me of the only time I nearly flipped over a sample vial of DeAtramentis Orchids...which is scented.  The whole room smelled nice, for a minute.

And we DO suddenly sound like hoarders! I keep the same paper towel for a while - like maybe a month, until I can't find a clean spot on it to use anymore...or until I use it to clean up something else, like glue.  Then I toss it and it starts all over again.

I did love the gold on the towel too, and it was okay to write with in a broad wet pen, but it is not super saturated (except on the napkin).

Inquiring minds want to know... what's the back story for these two circumstances?

Well... nothing really cool... I was just filling these (into different pens on different days) and lo and behold... yikes... the bottles fell over. My fault but may I suggest that it was also the MB bottle and especially its cap which are too round and flat... and that made them so hard to hang onto? And that the Noodler's bottle was too full (as always when new)? In the meantime, I fill more carefully with everything in a big, wide, flat porcelain dish...
