thanks! i like the way you do your colour swathes.... there's seems to be some order in that randomness.... :rolleyes:

i must say the 54th mass looks rather subdued for a blue.

I like your ink sample comparisons because you put a couple of contrasting colors besides the ones you're focussing on. The pap you use has a white dot effect under the ink swabs. Nice
All the best, Ingrid

Thanks; I actually did this from a hotel room using ordinary tissue and semi random movement :)

Thanks - I try to do that as I like using contrasting colors; that paper is the Levenger Behance Dot Grid Journal - very smooth!

I had been less than intrigued by the new Noodlers inks, until I saw this! Now, I want to paint with them Posted Image Really beautiful in large swatches.

Just when I thought I was growing tired of blue-blacks in favor of brighter colors, it's the blue black that stands out to me. It reminds me of deep water. Nice job.

Thanks; this is actually how I get interested...I'll swab 'em on paper and then make a decision which I'm interested in right away. I keep the sheet in my journal and come back to it every so often to see if I want to use the others.

Me too, thanks; I love the blue-black, enough for it to make it into one of the ink pots I carry with me on long trips. It's elegant enough to use on any signed docs, but U still like the Elysium's brightness. The duller Mass. will have to wait a bit ;)

Does anyone know how Noodler's 54th Massachusetts compares to Van Gogh Starry Night? I have a sample of 54th Massachusetts, but it is too gray for my tastes and am considering Van Gogh Starry Night as a darker blue-black.

Thanks!

Looks lovely. I am hot-cold and trying out the Noodlers, Plains of Abraham in an inexpensive twsbi pen as I think the ink as lovely as it is may be a slightly more stubborn ink and may stain the sight windows on a better pen. Does anyone know for sure if it is like a BSB?

I tend to agree, it's the more artistic side of this website that I like the best :).

Very nice. Thank you.


let me know if you want samples; I know you love your reds and oranges ;)

Thanks for the kind words; I try to give some ideas that might complement the wonderful, more structured reviews here. I hope to someday make a book up of all these swabs; I actually snuck into the color copier room at my HQ and did a few and was very surprised at the accuracy of the output. I keep all these originals in my Levenger Circa journals, so it might be an interesting project, although you'll have to hunt for the color you want, but that's the fun :)

Where can one find the Black & Blue $100,000? I can't seem to find it anywhere else.

Nevermind, I found it under Q'ternity :P
