Hello loves! I wanted to share wit you all a new product that I added to the show. As you all know, I’ve fallen very much in love with fountain pens; and with that, fountain pen inks. I love playing and swatching different inks on my spare time; and have tried just about everything for swatching. From q-tips, to brushes, to a bottom of a cup… ultimately, I found the Silhouette America Pick-Me-Up to be the easiest thing. Now it’s not really meant for this and doesn’t fit into smaller bottles, also it’s pretty pricy. So I decided to make my own.
The Acrylic Ink Swatcher is 6mm in diameter and approximately 5inches tall. It’s small enough to fit in the smallest of ink bottles, even ink sample vials. The pointed stub end picks up the ink well and helps for great swatching. Note that each Acrylic Ink Swatcher is cut to size and filed by hand, to a stub point. No two products are exactly the same.
I’m very happy with how these turned out and since I have so many, that yes, I sat there and hand filed each one (10-15 mins on each, give or take), I decided to sell since I know some of you might be interested. Hoping these will be helpful to some of you hehe. Let me know your thoughts! I also used it in the video below, in case you want to see it in action.
