I was looking for this photo. I love this collection. I have aspirations (delusions).


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

Identifying the inks from this angle can sometimes be problematic.


I love the smell of fountain pen ink in the morning.

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.  

 

Keep an eye on Olympus cameras:

Now I'm jealous!!!!!  Just a couple of those rows of ink would satisfy my deepest need.  Let's see...1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,30,40,50....sounds good to me.

This is what it looks like today, 79 bottles. I am waiting for Iro Tsutsuji and Herbin Stormy Grey to arrive. I have to put some boxes on top of each other now so you can't see all, but there is no way around it.

I need 2 more Iro colors - Kosumosu and Tsukushi, and I will have the complete range. My collection will be more or less complete... (Yeah, right:))

Very nice, Morwen!  I just got a Big Box of Ink and haven't figured out where they go yet.  We may be moving soon, so I may live with it in the box till that's sorted.

Maybe a newb question,but I was under the impression that light exposure degraded ink in some way. Any concerns of having ink on display out in the open?

The usual wisdom here is that, exposed to light for years, inks will change.  Many of us keep them in a drawer or their original boxes to try and prevent that.  Cabinets with doors would work too.

NO NO NO

 

I've done a year long test with inks in a window. NONE OF THEM FADED when in the bottles.  Once they were on paper, totally different story.

Did they fade faster than before when on paper?

I doubt it.  

 

Testing that will take more time.

Look!  Facts!  Empirical evidence!  UNPOSSIBLE!

 

So, okay, that's wrong.  Amberlea tested it, and she knows fading.  So, it's wrong.  Yay!

:)  Thank you!

 

It's actually not intuitive.  The chemistry would sugggest that the inks should fade in the bottle.  The evidence shows differently.  

 

Now, some inks disintegrate over time independent of light or heat.  Yes, Pelikan we are talking about you.

I don't know about fading, but I know about mold.  I found that I accidentally left some inks out of their boxes (I doubt that part made a difference) in an area that was near a heating vent.  For a long time.  I had no idea the hot air went that direction.  I had to throw out all the inks except one because under the constantly warm conditions, they all grew gross stringy mold.
