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


If you think everything is going well, you obviously have no clue what is really going on!

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'm feeling teased.


When I grow up, I want to be a great lawyer. Until then, I practice.

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.
