clouds 1st march '16

Strange colour for clouds… I was testing out a re-inked ribbon and I forgot to switch the lever. I re-inked because it’s a silk ribbon, and was in perfect condition apart from being bone dry. The black ink has revamped the red half to make this brownish colour, which I am quite happy with, as you just can’t get colour ribbons in the UK unless you want to pay through the nose. Also happy to have a silk ribbon too.

How did I re-ink? Like this. It’s messy. But it came out quite even on this ribbon and I don’t seem to have any splodgy spots.
