Non-drying pad for stamps

To prepare such a pillow, take 30-40 parts of glycerin and saturate with some easily soluble aniline paint, for example, methyl violet . Then, 10 parts of the carpentry glue, previously soaked in water for a day, are dissolved therein and the resulting mass is poured into a tin box. After cooling, the mass is covered with a rare muslin and receives a pillow, which will be permanently impregnated with paint and sufficiently moist, since glycerin has the property of attracting moisture from the air. When the surface of the mass is strongly wiped, the pillow can be melted down and reused. If the pillow has not been used for a long time and has somewhat hardened, it should be moistened with a few drops of warm water.
