radellaf: I have the 15 inks I've opened so far all ready (with the coffee scented one spilled a bit) but can't figure which freshly-cleaned pen to ink up with one. Or which, at all, to put a glitter/shimmer ink in. Dec 7, 2022 15:37:13 GMT
Mia: if worried about the clog, perhaps cheaper pens Dec 8, 2022 13:53:14 GMT
