Dr. Ph Martin’s Pen White Ink Review

I was glad to find Dr. Ph Matin’s Pen-White at Art Friend for a project I did last month. It was too thick to use out of the bottle so I transferred it to a small bottle and diluted it with water.

When I got the consistency right, I added a few drops of gum of arabic to make the solution more permanent. I was glad to be able to make hairlines and swells using the Nikko G nib.

The ink cakes on the nib pretty fast so I had to work fast and clean the nib every now and then. It’s a good thing that clean-up was easy as the ink comes off the nib and pen holder when you run it under water.

What’s your experience with this ink? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below.
