A Helpful Tip When Drawing with Ink: Ink washes can be messy and permanent. We will be using permanent markers and India ink in class. Prior to class, I suggest that parents and students prepare the drawing area to prevent spills or stains. A plastic mat on the workspace is helpful. I also find it helpful to secure the ink well with tape or a 3M command strip. Another great strategy is to use an egg carton to hold inkwells. You cut a hole in the bottom of the egg carton so that the ink well will fit. I often bump the ink well with my arm, and this precaution has helped prevent spills.
