This sounds like a great idea! I think you'd want
to be careful to avoid waxed floss, though.  If
the floss is too hydrophobic the India ink won't
coat it properly.  I might try your idea!  There are
floss holders that you could fill with your own
type of thread or floss, and as a one-time expense
might be OK. Thanks!
