Mandala doodle using Diamine Steel Blue and Violet inks.
I had a bit of an inktastrophe with the violet by accidentally knocking over the 30ml plastic bottle. Ink on stove top, counter, wooden cabinet door, linoleum floor, hands, (a week later, multiple hand washings, showers and dish washings and I still have it in my cuticles) toes, Teva Sandals, new shorts from Old Navy and somehow... on the fridge across the room. hmmmm. And believe it or not, when I grabbed the bottle, it was only missing about a tablespoon of ink. What an UNBELIEVABLE mess. I seemed to get it everywhere EXCEPT the purple shirt I had been wearing. Totally stained the counter, floor and cabinet door. Brillo got it off the counter & door, a Swifter floor wipe got it up from the linoleum. Whew! Had anyone but me made that mess I would have lost my mind.
Stay tuned for future reviews of these inks.
