Openinkstand Art & Calligraphy

McCaffery’s Iron Gall ink is a very popular ink with pointed pen artists due to its ability to give very fine lines… but unfortunately since it is made with all natural organic pigments, mold sometimes grows in the jar. I have three jars of this ink and two of them has been infected with the mold.

But it’s not a big deal, it is common and happens all the time, simply remove the mold with a stick, stir the ink and it is ready again to use. These pictures are of a new bottle I bought that already had mold growing on the top.
