Dinky Dips

For our selection of empty jars and inkwells: Ink




S1015. Ash Bush Tilted Ink Holder
S1015. Ash Bush Tilted Ink Holder

Made of unfinished pine, it holds two bottles: one upright and the other at a slant, which makes for easier dipping. Handmade in the USA by Ash Bush.

S889. Hardwood Ink Jar Base (and glass bottle)
Glass Jar & Hardwood Holder.

The hardwood holder plus an empty 1oz glass jar (S276).

This finished hardwood holder is designed for the 1oz jar of McCaffery’s Penman Ink (or similar 1oz glass jar). The base helps stabilize the bottle, wet ink wipes off with a paper towel, and it looks nice! Improved design uses velcro to hold the bottle in place.

Choose the color of wood: Light or Dark.

Old item number S869.

S853. Jumbo Dinky Dip
S853. Jumbo Dinky Dip.

Similar to our Screw-Top Small Dinky Dip (S934), but with larger screw-top jars (1/2 oz) and a larger unfinished wooden base..

Choose your base shape:
1-Square (1 jar) 2.75"x2.75"
4-Square (4 jars): 3.5"x3.5"
4-Rectangle (4 jars): 1.5"x6.5"
8-Rectangle (8 jars): 3.5"x6.75"
10-Rectangle (10 jars): 3.5"x8.5"
12-Rectangle (12 jars): 3.5"x11.25"

The bases are made so that the jars fit tightly in their holes, but also made so you can remove the jars. To remove a jar, you might need to wiggle the jar back and forth while pulling. It can take some effort. Of course, you will want to make sure the lid is screwed on well before starting to remove the jar. When replacing a jar -- if you want it to be removable again -- push it into the hole just enough for it to be secure, but not as deep as it will go.

Jar inside dimensions: approximately 28mm dia. x 25mm high

Refills: S844 or S856

S934. Small Screw-Top Dinky Dip
S934. Small Rectangle or Square Dinky Dip, with 4 screw-top vials.

These mini inkwells allow you to see your nib as you dip into the ink, allowing you to easily control the depth. They are especially well-suited for pointed pen. Each has four plastic vials, four screw-tops, and an unfinished wooden base. The screw-tops seal the vials tight for transporting or storage (you should keep the filled vials upright). Vial inside dimensions: approximately 14mm dia. x 20mm high. (These are larger than the vials for our regular small Dinky Dip, now called "Flip-Top Small Dinky Dip.")

Choose your base shape:
Rectangle 1" x 4"
Square 2.75" x 2.75"

See S935 for refills.

If you prefer a vial with a flip-top, please see our Flip Top Dinky Dip, item S852.
