Hi again.

I'm in Portugal (a little European Country) I have made some research but I can't find the ink any where!!

 The two only solutions I have:

1 - making my own ink! (but I have know how...);
2 - the nearest shop on-line that I have seen is French.

But I really prefered the first choice, if it is possible...

Sorry about my english Sad

Your english is fine.  As for "ink", you may want to try for a fast-drying paint.

Hi Zippo

You can use Tipex/correction fluid or nail varnish.Apply with a minimal amount on the brush and give it time to dry. I would go with Tipex i've used it lots.

Wonderful! I thought we couldn't use varnish/tipex because of it's active smell!

 In 2006 one friend order some white markers from "Uni-Posca"! And lended one, it's very easy to use! But I can't find it anywhere here.

Thanks!!

I buy enamel paint pens (Testors brand) in the local hardware store.  They work fine.  I've also used the "Uni-Posca" pens.  They also work fine.  Any fast drying enamel should work.
