Fountain pens must either be used daily or they need to be flushed weekly. Today was flushing day…..shamefully, a few pens needed a cold bath today….however, all are well and happy now.
Today, I took a J Harbin mini fountain pen on a road test. After I flushed it I filled it and used it to sketch this chicken…..
I love the color of this chicken and may revisit this subject another time. I have had this little fountain pen for a while and it is a bit banged up but It performed well when sketching this. I used to have Pilot pink ink in it and never used it. I cleaned and reloaded it with Noodlers Bullet Proof Ink and as you can see, it handled the drawing quite well and it didn’t run when watercolor was added.
