Well, that will teach the poor fellow to play with Ethernautrix!

 

I think it is more fpn than ethernautrix.

 

When I asked if I could put his e-mail address on fpn and he said yes, I said, "What if you get a thousand e-mails?" He laughed.

 

Inky fpn members are ink crazy, hahaha. And it's wonderful!

Thanks, rudyhou. I suppose writing in journals just about daily for years and years could be considered stealth practice. (Practice without considering it as practice.) When friends (or friends of friends) catch a glimpse of my notebook pages, the remark I most often hear is "it looks like a printed book!"

 

So... where is kwzi? Hahaha. I know, it's only the 22nd.

He is fighting! :)
I got back from Easter on Monday evening and I prepared fresh batch of some inks and also purified some colors of the earlier one, this took me till around 5:30 in the morning;)
Yesterday I was doing some R&D and preparing color chart:)
I have a lot of tape - and I won't hesitate to use it!

I have to apologize for that I'm awful photographer - I tried to fight a bit with camera I have but still I feel a bit disappointed. 

Photos taken in full sun light ten to be to bright and unsaturated, and those taken in artificial goes to far to black. Today I took another series of photos, and here is link : https://drive.google...dit?usp=sharing Some photos were taken in direct sun light, and some in mix of scattered sun light and artificial light. Enjoy!

Just a note to our members:  kwzi provided a link.  That link is a ZIP file about 161MB in size that contains 84 pictures.  I have downloaded it and, my computer found no viruses or problems.

So many nice colors!  I love the iron gall colors, too.

 

If a group buy happens, I'd probably be down for one of the blues and maybe an iron gall.

Well, this should be interesting!  KWZI, Dale and I are willing to organize the group buy.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

I'm kidding.

 

No, but, seriously.

 

Hahaha.

 

Really.

 

(Laughs.)

 

(Shakes head no.)

 

I hope kwzi makes it to Pen Salon Steinhaus - everyone, cross your fingers!

 

Thanks, kwzi, for making and posting the photos!

If a group buy were organized ... anyone interested?

Interested.  Even though I haven't tried all the Akkermans from the last group buy yet.

I really like the Dark Green!  It reminds me of Noodler's Prime of the Commons. Also enjoyed the turquoise iron gall ink.
