Re: [BKARTS] Refilling Pilot Parallel pen cartridges



you can also dispense with the cartridge altogether and just fill the
barrel. if you put a little rubber cement around the threads on the
barrel, it keeps the ink inside, and you can write for a longgggg time
with it...

leeanne in maine where we haven't even been CLOSe to the freezing mark

Yes, you can clean out the pens using the bladder, and then refill the
cartridge with whatever you like. I've only used water-soluble stuff
that
would work in a conventional fountain pen -- liquid watercolors,
fountain
pen inks -- but others have said you can use waterproof acrylic inks,
gouache,even adhesive for covering with metallic foils. Brenda
Broadbent,
of Paper & Ink Arts (www.paperinkarts.com), wrote the book on using
these
pens: _Parallel Pen Wizardry_.
