It's a pleasure - almost ready to go, just ironing out the last wrinkles.

Warm regards, Wim


Thanks for all the effort. Much appreciated.

?

It is anything but Parker.

It is a blue ink, with grey undertones, which shades from very light blue to the deepest navy, with excellent lubrication characteristics (unlike the current Parker inks). It has a very pleasant vintage-style look.

This ink is very popular, and there are very good reasons why it is so.

Warm regards, Wim

Will there be another buy sometime in the future?  I didn't have the cash the last time around, and wasn't around here when there were previous ones.

OK, thanks Wim! Guess I'll have to find a reasonably close match to it.

 

Take care.

I know from reading the older posts that the FPN inks are not currently available, and won't be for some time; but if the powers that be are keeping a tally of interested parties, please count me in for several bottles of Tulipe Noire. 

 

(I could mix a matching shade myself, but I have a personal affinity for the bottles... ;) ).

 

Thank you!

 

(Edited to add: I'd like a couple of Galileo Brown as well--I've found the color looks fantastic when used with sanguine conte sticks for sketching)

Make that a third.... I'd love to get my hands on both of these.

OTOH, someone I know got a bottle of Galileo the last time the ink was available (a year or two back) but I found it to be way more red than I want in a brown ink.   :angry:

I was never clear on just why FPN stopped selling inks.  Is there any information any one can spill?

Sorry, but currently, as has been the case for the past year and a half or more, we don't seem to be able to contact the supplier of our inks for more.

 

We are considering our options, but don't hold your breath.

 

This topic will be closed; when there is any development regarding our inks, we will start a new topic on this subject.

 

HTH, warm regards, Wim
