Iroshizuku - Tsuki-yo (Moonlight) - CRV - Group Review - 2014-10

 

The Iroshizuku Group Review color for October 2014 is Tsuki-yo ”Moonlight”.  It is a dark blue, recalling the night sky when lit by the full moon.

 
Please post your reviews and scans of the ink in this thread.
 
If you want to a partner for a Co-Razy View (CRV) of this ink, please write it up and mail it to Lou Erickson.  (PM for the address.)  If you want to do a Co-Razy View on your own, please do!  Other reviews are welcome, too.
 
You can look at the full description of the Iroshizuku Group Review to see how this should work and what we’re doing.

Thanks to Rachel Goulet, who gave permission to me to use their beautiful product photo and swab.
Thanks to Amberlea again, who had the ink on hand in time to write the attractive banner.
 
Let the reviews begin!   :)

This is so exciting.  I sent you a letter with T-Y, did you get it?

Cyber 6.........GREAT POST, thanks! All parts of a review are important to someone, but how the ink actually looks on paper is HUGE.

Just realized I have a sample of Tsuki-yo. So PM sent for the co-razy view style letter.

 

I'm also hoping to get the time to do a short written review for this thread as well.


So many inks, so little time...

I did, which was delightful.  I haven't replied because my ink hadn't come in.  It arrived Friday.  Yesterday and this morning are full; hopefully this evening I will have time to reply properly!

If I get any more, I will!  Clearly I wasn't thinking it through when I replied to you there.

 

I haven't got any others yet!  If you want to write in, please do!

Hi Lou,

 

lovely ink you have there. There are a lot of lovely Iroshizuku inks... Which i judged from the reviews here.

 

What is the price in the USA... In Holland it is a steep €40>>> $45....

 

That is what kept me away from buying

Tricked throughout the centuries...

For centuries people had been tricked by kings & "religion-alism"

In the 20th century people got tricked by communism

Today people get tricked by (neo)capitalism  :)

Today turned crazy (I put in an offer on a house, not realizing it would devour my entire day!)  Hopefully tomorrow will be less so and I can get a scan posted.  I have a pen inked, and wrote some.  I was going to do a CRV with Tsuki-yo and Namiki Blue, but the blue-black might be closer.

 

Shading, I think, too.

Today was not much less crazy - they accepted my offer on the house and I get to do a lot of paperwork - but I did manage to write up a CRV with myself so I could post something on the first of the month.  :)

 

Lots of month left, so if you want to mail letters, please do!  I have one here waiting for a home.

 

My CRV follows...
