Yep, if you were holding your breath, you would have turned blue and fell over...

Nice of you to share the recipe for this blue, but does it shade? :D

I seem to have here some Black Swan in... uhhh... Icelandic... ummm... something blue. Minty bathwater?

 

Dry time is good, waterproof beyond reasonability for the color, and oh, at least on Rhodia and Clairefontaine, that shading...

 

Still working on this one, but it's coming along nicely enough that I'd share it as a preview. Shown here on Rhodia.

Great colour and great photo  :D

I'm actually quite curious to know. The shading is fantastic...

I want to make sure it's stable, and that the shading doesn't vanish as the ink gets to know itself; I'm going to cook up another batch tonight and let it sit for a couple of weeks.

 

I could probably send out a sample or two, in the meantime.

"...as the ink gets to know itself" ???  What is that? LOL

 

Oh, I am learning a lot here. I am new,new,new to the language and all and I am enjoying my time here…. I was about to ask  what shading was when I saw this… Very graphic. Thanks! You did a great service to novices in the art of writing.

Reading through this thread I've come to the conclusion that it was an April fool's joke played at the wrong time of year. I won't be waiting for the non-existent recipe.

Big thanks, Prvt. Toter for this excellent recommendation!  I've been one of the suckers waiting and waiting for the "secret recipe" which I also believe was a hoax (motive???).  But I have ordered a bottle of Tsuki Yo and plan to be delighted  :)

Guys, maybe something (bleep) up with the ink, and maybe the maker just forgot about the thread? doesn't have to be a hoax.

Agreed, mixing inks is a crazy affair... sometimes strange things happen... Hoping it is not just a tease as it is beautiful and I am a sucker for blue.  The Tsuki Yo is a nice ink, pretty well behaved, but requires a decent stub or flex nib to get the shading out of it.

Tsuki-Yo is beautiful. Shades differently. Yama-Guri is closer, but bluer and with that legendary sheen.

This is no hoax. What a silly hoax it would be. I've sent out samples to a couple of folks. And despite the discouraging negativity and bitterness shown towards me here I will be posting my latest recipe as soon as I find it amongst the moving boxes.

Apologies to those who have patiently waited.

Thanks for the updates, going to check out the Yama-Guri based on your comments... my Tsuki Yo is reaching to bottom of the bottle (sad)  and will need replaced soon.. heading to the inks section to look at now!.

My apologies!  About a year ago (?) I sent a PM to Masque and never received a response.  In the absence of any reply to our pleadings lo these many months, I mistakenly came to the wrong conclusion.  I'm back to waiting  :)  :)
