Glass dipping pens provide a nice flow of ink over paper. As long as you have a bottle of ink nearby, glass pens help you capture your thoughts anytime of the day or night. Glass dipping pens are handcrafted and, as such, each batch varies in color. This makes each pen a unique item for your collection.
Wherefore, can fountain pen ink be used for dip pens? Fountain pen ink with a dip pen = fine, no problem. ... Dip pens are really easy to clean, there's no internal ink supply or capillary feed, so you basically just wipe the nib and put it away. Summary: Fountain pen ink with a dip pen = fine, no problem.
Ergo, how long do dip pen nibs last?
With the more delicate nibs such as my favourite, Leonardt Principal EF, sometimes you can get a good batch that will last for 40 -60 envelopes (or calligraphy applications). However other times you will need to change into a new one after just 15-20 applications of calligraphy.
Do you have to dip fountain pens?
A fountain pen has an internal ink reservoir that holds multiple pages worth of ink. You don't just dip it in ink to fill, you also need to operate the filling mechanism for it to suck up ink. For example, to fill a piston filler you need to turn the knob at the end to move the piston and draw ink into the reservoir.

India ink usually uses gelatin or shellac for a binder. It looks like sumi-e has just got the glue used to hold together the ink stick. No idea if prepared sumi-e ink has a binder or if it's just water & soot. The soot used might be different (I know India ink generally uses lampblack, don't know about sumi-e).
They are two very different kinds of ink. India Ink is a pigment based ink,alcohol inks are dye based. ... The alcohol ink colorant is a dye that completely dissolves into solution and in our case it is alcohol. When you add more alcohol the dissolved dye merges into the new solution.
Dip nibs are periodically dipped into a container of ink. Fountain pen nibs transport ink down the channel from the breather hole to the tip Dip nibs transport ink from the entire surface of the nib to the tip.
There are both pigment and dye based ink for printers, i.e. inkjets often use dye / water basedink. The other chemical formulations in both types of ink however are not the same as fountain pen ink when compared to the printer ink. The demands for viscosity, flow and dryness are different in modern printers.
