Hey Everybody!

 

if you're anything like me, you have a very specific way that you like to arrange your collection of inks on your desk or in a drawer etc. Time to show them off! Ill begin by posting mine and a list of the inks there.

 

Please don't mind the tequila in the background....

 

Thanks

-M.

Diamine Turquoise

Noodler's Black Swan in English Roses (my everyday ink for any flex pen)

Noodler's Apache Sunset (my go-to "impact ink" when I want to show off)

Noodler's Saguaro Wine

Noodler's Zhivago (one of my all time favorite inks, probably going to switch my Montparnasse to this ink)

One is Tequila and one is probably Sailor Jerry at a guess?

I definitely believe that this "large bottles of ink" help my drafting very much, I highly recommend them.  :lticaptd:

 

Also, nice collection Attila! What is the flagon of ink I see?

 

On an unrelated note, I also have a really good friend in Budapest named Attila!

This is the best collection I've ever seen of these bottles. WOW thank you for sharing.

Eeew ... do I see Concord Bream in Amber's collection?  Doesn't that even top LRM for bad behavior on paper?

 

Hmmm, I don't see TX Pecan with the "Big Nuts" on it.

Good eye, yep, I have both the Big Nut (next to the heart) and the lousy concord bream but no LRM.  However, QSH was the WORST performer for me.

Wow nice collections! I just saw an interesting 1 liter OMAS bottle for sale and I got tempted to buy it...I just worry if I buy one that I will end up with lots of vintage ink bottles and it will start to look like clutter. 

 

Since I am in the middle of a huge remodel all of my inks are in various boxes...not sure I will ever have a proper display though as my style is modern and minimal.

The reason mine is so small compared to what it could be ... I give away samples or even bottles.

I really wish I could get a nice picture of all my ink.  <sigh>  It just can't be done.  I'd have to photograph it in segments, and even then, probably segments of segments.
