I am so excited! Yesterday I discovered that you can buy a refillable, "roller ball" pen,
OK, so why does that excite me so?
Well, first, I use tons of pens in my doodling (I do more than I show you...I figure you would get really bored seeing my letter practices :-)...so refillable is a WONDERFUL THING! Yes, I know Copic has refillable markers..but the ones that can be refilled with their ink have big tips, I want small, AND their ink is water soluble..UGH! I also know that they have pens with smaller nibs but you have to buy new cartridges, you can't "fill" them like the markers.
That leads to the second reason...
I want permanent black ink and that's not easy to come by...Sharpies are about it. Wellllll.... Noodler's makes a black ink that is waterproof! Heehee...
Now, to the part that hurts a bit .... the costs... From The Goulet Pen Company:
The rollerball is $14
The felt tip is from $2.95-$9.95 (depending on options...I got mine for $4.95)
The Noodler's Black ink is $12.95 ... there are several blacks so you might want to shop first.
Shipping is super fast. I ordered yesterday afternoon and about an hour later I got an email that it had shipped from ASHLAND, VA ... USPS... :-( ... I will get it tomorrow (Friday)!
I will post something I've done with it as soon as I can.
I'm so excited I can hardly wait!
I kinda hate to admit this but I also bought a Noodler's Ahab flex pen (gotta take advantage of the shipping). I actually got it for the thick/think permanent ink line...great for writing, but also for drawing:
