Sticky ink

Sticky ink is a new product of Pergamano.

You can use your penholder and nib as if you were using normal ink.

Trace your pattern and sprinkle extra fine glitter over it. Tap paper to shake off excess glitter. Extra fine glitter works best.

Rinse the nib regularly in warm or cold water and wipe with a soft tissue as you do when working with normal ink.

Waiting till you are finished will dry up the glue on your nib and will be very difficult to clean.

Have fun trying out this product. Try using different colours in the one project. It gives a great result.

TIP: Keep one nib for sticky glue and another for your other work.  Use an old brush to cover larger areas with ink.

Apply glitter and let dry completely before removing excess glitter.
