Yes, I know that is not an inkwell, but a bottle.  Believe it or not, I'm old enough that I remember inkwells built into our desks at school.  This is made of torn pieces of tissue paper glued together with acrylic medium as well as acrylics applied with a sponge and ink.It is an illustration for a serial novel I am working on.

I forgot to mention that I also used oil pastels between some of the layers. Hope it works out OK, I won't do it in anyone else's Mole. Unless we can find some data that it is safe and archival.
