Occasionally, an ink will “pool”. It is not a problem. While I don’t know the chemistry of these inks, it almost seems like some are more viscous (thicker) than others.
When this happens, just let the ink chill a minute – it is having its spa day!
If you want to speed things up, use the edge of your acrylic block and “squeegee” the excess ink off. If you don’t like ink on your fingers, you will want to take precautionary action before.
Personally, I love inky fingers and a glittery face.
See how some of the images *mostly on the left side of the pairs* are lighter or not as solid? Those are the pre-spa day images.
Look how much more life there is after a good re-inking!
Here is a little something I do to my bottles so I can tell which juice is which from the top.
Simply write the color on the top of the bottle with a thin Sharpie. I have heard of using a little Liquid Glass and adhering a dot of card stock on the nozzle, too.
Hope this helps – the world needs all the bright beautiful rejuvenating color it can have.
