Good morning! Technical - and perhaps stupid - question: how do I seal an eyedropper to prevent ink leakage from the point where the section screws into the barrel without using silicone grease?
I've started using paraffin wax: once warmed with the fingers, it can be spread very homogeneously and seems to work well. However:
- Am I doing potential damage? I.e., is paraffin wax able to corrode or damage ebonite, or is it safe?
- Would it be better to use natural wax? I read somewhere that it contains potentially harmful acid substances?
