Only Believe

Had a fun flourishing day today. This piece is done on diploma parchment with best bottle ink. Just experimenting with the ink to see what it is capable of.

Heather, I love this piece. What is "best bottle ink?"
I don't think it is the ink that is capable! You could write with dirt and it would flow beautifully! :)

Hi Dana,

Best Bottle Ink is a type of Sumi ink. John Neal carries it as well as Oriental Art Supply. I find I get better hairlines with it than with Moon Palace for reproduction work. I dilute it by about 1/3 with distilled water. Glad you liked the piece!
