One day, my brother brought home a bottle of Pelikan 4001 fountain pen ink which he picked up in school. Not really into fountain pens but I’ve been practicing brush lettering and watercolour recently, and I’m very happy with this find! The Royal Blue ink was intense enough when used neat, and if you diluted it with the water in your brush, you get this light blue shade, very much like watercolour. Plus, the ink is water-based and all around very easy to clean up after.
I later found out that each bottle of ink only costs about $5+, and is available at Popular bookstore and Art Friend, in several colours. Guess I’ll be checking them out very soon!
These are two printables that I did after meeting two of my good friends from school – we’ve known one another for many years and feeling just a little reflective that day. 😀 Just right click to save if you’re interested, I scaled them to A4 size.
