Gives a whole different meeting to writing mom.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Oh, they're turning people into graphite. That's not too easy to put in a fountain pen. You could make people pencils however

 

I don't think that you were being helpful....  Well, maybe to Amberlea's kids, maybe.  ;)

Blood might work well for a dip pen, but it would need an anticoagulant I suspect.

Heparin, and keep it refrigerated B)

I tried adding iodine to inks to make them more permanent on paper, as well as fabric dyes for inks. Not great results. I learned there is so much more to inks than just the dyes.
