[Histonet] Rotring ink for marking arteries and veins

Rotring ink was extensively used for fine line drawing and by
draughtsmen(women) before the advent of CAD/CAM systems. It is probably
based on an indian ink formula*, but has some other sticky vehicle in it
in it that would clog up the fine pens used if they were not cleaned
properly. I used to use my sister's one for tracing drawings, and woe
betide me if I gummed up the pens!
*indian ink, originally a mixture of carbon black and shellac, is, if
translated from the French, Chinese
ink. They were probably the first to use it.

I had a researcher come in and ask about Rotring ink. It was used in
a procedure to inject and mark the arteries and veins with different
colors. I know Polysciences has the Batson's Anatomical Corrosion Kit.
I spoke to Pam Marcum at Polysciences and she said the Batson's is not
Rotring ink. She thought Rotring ink may be a tattoo ink. Does anyone
know what Rotring ink is, where it can be purchased, and how it would be
diluted to inject into the vessels?
