Suede Pens

I’d almost forgotten about my suede pens. Haven’t used them in awhile, but they’re great for lefty overwriters like me when larger letters are called for.  Made of ultra-suede, they can be used with washable ink and watercolors. After use, it’s best to clean them immediately under a running faucet. They come in seven sizes beginning with 1/4″ and going up to one and one forth inches. Replacement suede is available (or at least used to be), though I haven’t seen even the pens for sale lately, except at John Neal Bookseller. You will find a link to his site on my sidebar. With these pens you can do the big, fun stuff! 🙂

Favorite Inks!

In this post are my keeper inks that I will rebuy if they are available; several have been discontinued. The rest of my inks, well I dunno. Sometimes it seems like it’s more trouble than it’s worth to sell them. I guess there have been worse dilemmas! 🙂
