||Another five star review in the sea.
I feel spoiled snagging one of these as my first mop. Perfect shape for pencil grip, with enough squeeze in the body to still lay thick lines. I believe Junobo mops are the same shape, but AP's is much more squeezable.
I very much like the valve inside the nib. Paint will not flow unless the tip is depressed. I tore my first nib writing on rough concrete. I did not know what nib abuse was.
***Luckily, these nibs can be refelted(is that a word?) very easily! If the nib tears, remove what's left of the original nib (might need tweezers) one will see a circle grove the felt is bunched into. I found a piece of medium weight felt and cut a circle a little larger than the grove, and pressed it in using a small flathead screwdriver. This worked better than expected, but one may also consider purchasing extra nibs.
OTR soultip is my jam in these, addin' magic ink or steve garvey, you know how that goes...
Acrylic craft paint is pretty reliable too. Great for indoor use; hang some paper on the wall, cover the carpet in plastic. slowly water down acrylic for more drips and consider straining through pantyhose paint if it's old/has dried bits.
I put some bucket paint and magic ink in one of these once... I was naive, but it worked really well. This mix required slightly more aggressive squeezing, but perhaps illustrates how forgiving this mop is!
I ruined one of these mops by using a paint thinner solvent to clean that bucket paint out of it. The plastic was weakened and the top tore off when I attempted to twist the cap off. A lil' xylene ink inside holds up fine though!
