Inktober 4

Standard

So I tried a little experiment yesterday. I had bought a Wink Pen on Kickstarter ages ago and I’d never had opportunity to try it out. So I figured this was the perfect time to crack it open.

The running idea behind Wink Pens is that you can suck up any dark liquid into the barrel and draw/write with it. It was designed fro red wine, but I decided to try coffee. The uneven result was as follows.

Coffee Tendrils by Monica Marier

The “ink” did not move around the page, refusing to adhere to the nib. I’m not sure this was a success, but there are 2 factors in that. This might be the wrong kind of paper and possibly my coffee wasn’t dark enough. I think it will be worth trying again at a later date. So, although this one test didn’t go well, I think this pen deserves another chance.
