Hello dear people from Mitra.
Recently i began a ink drawing that i am really happy with, but last night i realised that my pen for ink had started to rust a bit...
The reason i didnt realise this before was because the pen was working great, and it was not clearly visible. I realised this when i had put it in destiled water and it was a bit yellowish, then i looked inside the pen and saw a little bits of rust on it...
I really care for my materials and especcialy my art, but i guess that this stuff happens.
THE THING I AM WORRIED ABOUT IS WILL THIS LITTLE BIT OF RUST IN PEN AFFECT THE INK ON MY DRAWING? WILL IT AFFECT THE ARTWORK?
I hope that artwork will remain as it is, but i wanted to ask to be sure?

It's possible that areas of your work with a heavy application of ink that has a particularly large concentration of rust might eventually become more brittle, the way art and manuscripts created with iron gall ink can. However, as the person above suggested, that would take a very long time to show. I wouldn't be too concerned; if you've switched to a new pen and continued from there your art will probably be okay!
