This video shows one way of achieving an ink splatter effect with mosplines. There are probably many others. In the tutorial I only show the core technique with very rough settings. So experimenting and refining is highly recommended :-)
Note: You can take as many splines as you like under one metaball object, you are not restricted to one set of mosplines. So go wild!
