Reink sample: A few weeks later
Just posting a sample of text from reinked ribbon a week or two after doing it. Looks OK to me.
So, it’s not very blue but it is blue. It is pretty even, and has actually improved since I did it. And it has had plenty of time to dry out and it hasn’t, even the bit of ribbon near the paper and which is exposed to the air. Maybe if I left the machine unused for weeks it would dry out, but so far it looks like the glycerine works.
