I108. Dr. Martin's Pen White
Dr. Martin's Pen-White

A great white ink for pointed pen work! 1oz dropper bottle. Can be thinned with water if necessary.

"The new ink is Dr Martin's Pen White, which sold out at Odyssey. I loved it so much that I went back to the supply store and bought a second bottle. Pat Blair tried it, and it worked beautifully out of the bottle with her Spencerian script. No mixing required. The dropper made dispensing easy. It did get a bit thicker as I was using it, and I added a bit of water to the dropper. All my pieces (white on dark paper) at Odyssey and at IAMPETH were done using that ink. -- Aline Chan
