Winter Creek ATC

This glass dip pen is one of the new ones I ordered before Christmas.  It is much smaller in scale than the first one, which could be a problem for one with large hands.  It is fine for me, though the nib is not quite as smooth either.  These glass dip pens hold an amazing amount of ink!  I simply dip it as far as I like (as long as I don't go above the twisted part), and start drawing.  I choose India ink for this because I am following immediately with my watercolors.  My fountain inks would all bleed, giving the color a definite blackish hue, not muddy but very dirty looking.  I've only tried that once!   Every painting is a lesson.  Painting number 1819 in 1819 days.
