How to use a glass pen


What you’ll need:
・Glass pen
・Bottled ink
・A container filled with water
・Tissues or a soft cloth
・Pen rest or storage box


Step 1: Dip in ink
Submerge the nib in ink, taking care to avoid contact with the bottom of the bottle.



Step 2: Write
Hold the pen at a low angle and write with flowing strokes without applying excessive pressure. When ink becomes faint, rotate the nib to release more ink from the grooves. Each dip will hold enough ink for about a postcard’s worth of writing. When setting down your pen, we suggest using a pen rest or storage box to keep it secure.



Step 3: Rinse
Rinse the nib in a container filled with water and wipe clean with a tissue or soft cloth. To remove stubborn ink from the grooves, clean using a toothbrush or a pH neutral detergent.
