Reply To: White Ink Pens and FIC

#131791

I used to use mapping pen nibs with white drawing ink, but switched to Pilot gel pens in white (fine) and have found them to be lightfast and very easy to write with. I protect the surface with a layer of Paraloid (Acryloid) B72 in acetone first, and protect the number with a further layer when the ink has dried. Pilot pens are often available from art supply and craft shops or online from suppliers like http://www.cultpens.com/
Hope this helps
