My First Eyedropper

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Thanks to this video from Ink Nouveau, I found out that I can convert my Edison Pearlette to an eyedropper. I had a bit of silicone grease lying around so I thought I’d give it a try. Works great! I’m not sure if it’s really supposed to improve inkflow, but my pen’s writing wetter more consistently after the conversion. I loaded it with a lot of Diamine Sepia, which I decided was the perfect color of ink for the pen. 🙂 Awesome.

  1. Hello! Your blog is very interesting. I look forward to new posts. I have a question. Is your pearlette still writing wetter after giving it longer use as an eye dropper? I have the same pen and ink with the same dry issue. Very sad.

    1. Hi Marchris, I’m afraid that this ink and pen combination remained really dry even after converting it to an eyedropper. I had to resort to using a different kind of ink with it.
