order some ink from Bostick and Sullivan, thought about David Lewis", but will start with B&S. Will get some balsum. Have beeswax.

I noticed that Gene Laughter was using VanSon Ink, haven't seen it listed anywhere, but will keep my eye out for some. I have quite a bit , 4 oz tins of black and several other colors. Am sure that will last awhile.

My sense is , that this takes time and pratice (as if that is any different then learning to print well). The learning bin is empty waiting .........
