Storing Sumi Ink
« on: June 23, 2017, 01:39:23 PM »
Hey guys!

So when I was getting my supplies for  my business, my hubby bought me a glass container with a metal lid to store my sumi ink. It's nice! A wide mouth that's just perfect to dip my oblique pen in. However I've run into a problem, the ink is eating the metal lid away and it's close to getting holes. And with a toddler trying to grab everything, I need a new container that has a foolproof lid. Any suggestions?

Well, if you need a corrosion free container with a toddler proof lid, a medicine tub suggests itself.  The sort of thing that vitamins or painkillers come in.  A bit easy to knock over though, unfortunately, unless you care to glue it to something stable or put it in a heavy candle holder, but a reassuringly safe solution otherwise.  If you don't have an old one lying around, I expect a friendly pharmacist would be happy to find something suitable for you if you tell them what it's for.
