Forgot to upload this one too!

I am completely in love with ink. I think the next step is to add a simple splash of colour (watercolours probably, since my coloured ink stash is limited to sepia - boo! Time to buy more!), orrrrr utilize this AMAZING gold ink I have. That ink is a living entity, I swear it. I open up the bottle and all the pigment is swirling around, bubbling up like magma, even 10 minutes later, the bottle not being disturbed at all. I took a video but not sure if I can upload it!

Borzois are so pretty <3

OMG. The time it took for this??? That is amazing, and the details in it. Sepia might not be bad...don't know what a Borzoi is...maybe they are not that color. Ever tried colored pencil, or pastel?

Gold ink is best stored upside down, then there is no mixing, other than to stir with a toothpick or popsickle stick (slowly). I don't know why your's "erupts" if you are not shaking it. Shaking makes bubbles, and that is not good. It needs to settle for 24-48 hours after that when it is old and you need to. If it is old, you can generally add some thinner, depending on the brand. Lacquer? Alcohol mix? Just have to read the label. Nail polish remover (Acetone) can work too.

I am giving you a this rocks! Even without color.

Edit: Make sure you get copies of it, in case your color messes up? Chose good paper, and you can go back to square one. I have "goofed" stuff before, and wished I had something to go back to. Just a suggestion.  Wink
