Step 1: Shake well before use to ensure paint is thoroughly mixed.

Step 2: Depress nib a few times to start paint flow.  Please note: The valve remains open and releases paint the entire time the nib is depressed, so if held down for a long period, a large amount of paint is released 

Step 3: When paint appears on the nib pause for a moment. Wait until paint has stopped travelling down the nib before depressing the nib again.

Step 4: Repeat step 3 until nib is adequately saturated, test, and then apply. Re-pump as necessary but never directly on artwork to avoid paint splodges.
