So I wanted a way to display some of the prettier ink boxes, so I came up with the idea to get one of those pretty bathroom shelves and mount it over my desk. The inks have changed a little since the picture but still gives you an idea. I have also toyed with the idea of just putting out the bottles but afraid the sun might get to the ink and change it.

Whenever an ink bottle comes in a box, I always keep the ink in it, for just the reason you mention.

yes - sun & heat & frost & dampness are no good to ink, and same can be said for paper too. i generally only use inksticks, so a little bit different, but i always keep them wrapped in paper in their respective wooden boxes, and then again in a drawer.

I know I should keep them in the boxes, but the bottles are so pretty! My office has precious little natural light, and not really enough lamp light, so I keep my inks displayed on a shelf without their boxes. I'll try to get a picture tomorrow.........

I have minimised my collection. Wish I had enough inks to display. Sad
But they've gone for a Duke 3 Best, so no harm done. Biggrin

A Duke is on my list of things to try out even though I like larger brushes just cause everyone talks about them

After using big and luxurious brushes, especially after liking them I don't see you liking the Duke Phillip. I've sold mine.

Ya that's what always holds me back. Maybe one day I'll find someone that will let me borrow one for a few shaves to try and kill the "but maybe I'll like it" thoughts in my head

You definitely should do it like that. Trust me, there is no going back after Chubby.
