Anybody know of such?? The Chinese fountain opens hve really come up in tech and quality but I dont know if theyve tackled this opportunity for fountain pen nut like me? I like to sketch using a fountain pen because its fountain pens are smooth writing. However, non India Ink is not watrproof.\\ANY HELP would be appreciated.

@edgarblythe,
Old-time cartoonists used to have a fountain pen system that used India Ink and I could never find out about who made em .

@edgarblythe,
I looked into that Noodling ink, and because its made of suspended particles I believe they have to add something like a glycol to keep the stuff in suspendion and then theyd also hve to dd a detergent to maintain the suspension . Bad news for pen owners of pens using bladders rather tha the plastic tubes with suction pump fillers(kinda like the barrels of hypodermic needles), Bladders will turn into goo in a short time.So I looked up a comments pge about Noodlesr and it had a number of negs for just that reason. One guy hd his goo bladder kind of leak all over his sweater.(He kept his pen hooked to the neckline of his cotton sweater . SO he had a sweater that contained a nice black stain that was nice and colorfast.

@farmerman,
Could you fill the blader style fountain pen with India Ink, then empty and clean it when you're finished? I love fountain pens but have had trouble with the smooth delivery of ink....especially those plastic cartridge thingy's. Probably because I don't use them all that often anymore....maybe it's time to reactivate my old pens.

@glitterbag,
the problem is that India ink will really gum up the nib and ink delivery system. Once set up, India ink is like cement.Youd have to keep the nib at least moist so the ink doesnt set up but you still will have to spray the nib with plain water to force out any of the ink particles that have begun to set-up

I usually use dippy pens and crow-quills in the studio but doing field sketching, its too much of a hassle. Ive used these disposal pens but they arent color fast, if you do a water color wash over them, the ink will bleed. I often use a light table and trace my field sketches but tht will look stiff almost like its a printer copy.
