Subject: Labelling


From: Juliette Rogers <juliette>

I purchased a Pigma Micron pen for labelling between B-72 layers on
solid collections pieces, but the B-72 top coat washes it clean
away.  (I note it also washes away with a water-dampend cotton bud,
so so much for "waterproof!")  Does anyone have a preferred ink for
use with nibbed pens that can hold up to a camelhair brush with
acetone-diluted B-72?  I use Winsor and Newton for white, but I
don't know if their black is good too. Any hope of there being an
easy-to-use pen to minimize time with metal pens and open bottles of
