Hello all, a quick question: I've just been to a calligraphy workshop where we have used Standardgraph China Inks in Pilot Parallel pens.

Now the question: what is a china ink? According to google it's india ink so basically shellac with some pigments, which is definitely NOT supposed to be used in fountain pens, which, Parallel pens definitely are.

 

According to Standardgraph's catalog:

It seems they don't recommend it to be used in FPs... so I'm puzzled... maybe a thorough rinse after each sessions might save the pens ad enable us to use those china/india inks in Pilot Parallels? Any ideas, experiences?

 

Thanks!
