First thing I noticed was the smell. Smells like milk, so I'd say its calcium
based. With it being calcium based, calcium sinks to the bottom. So you have to
shake it every time you want to use it. Shaking it makes bubbles.
I think a brush would work wonders (I've never tried it), but you can use a pen
nib. It's just that the bubbles don't give you much ink so you have to go deeper
into the bubbles which makes a mess on your pen holder and gets all over your
nib. Cleaning this is just like cleaning glue, it's not hard but a hassle to get
your stuff clean.
About the actual ink, it works to some degree. When I was using it on black
India ink, it sort of mixed with it even after drying and it came out slightly
grey. It wasn't as flat as I thought it'd be too.
