Question Question about Gamsol and Stumps

I bought the Mona Lisa Brand spirits today since someone on here said that it was as good as the Gamsol. Where can I find the little bottles like the Gamsol comes in from Inky Antics. Also, is there a reason for using the stumps over tortillons other than stability? I have used the tortillons in the past. They bend and get kinda raggedy. But today I bought stumps. I was just wondering if they smooth the color any better. Thanks.

Many dollar stores sell bottles to put bingo ink in == long plastic with sponge on top.

Allamericanstamper (Chris) also suggested placing a sponge in a small container and wetting it with the mineral spirits. Just make sure you can cover/seal your container when you are done.

I am not sure about the stumps, they are all I used, but with your description I be it is the stability.

I bought a small double walled plastic jar with a screw top lid and cut a piece of sponge to go inside it for mine.
