Uluru red and Barrier Reef Blue look amazing! Geeze, now I feel your pain of ordering ink from all the way in Australia. The shipping must kill you guys.

Thank you, Cyber6!  I'm so excited.


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

Keep Kevin in business.

Buy the set of 5 for yourself, then one set each for your spouse/significant other/BFF/BMF/children/grandchildren, etc.

 

The Barrier Reef Blue is a luscious blue that, with different pens on different papers, gives you the colours of the Australian Barrier Reef.

Black Stump Black is the black of the charcoal on a burnt-out stump on a paddock west of Bourke.

Sydney Harbour Blue is the grey/blue of Sydney Harbour as seen from the Manly Ferry on a cold, overcast winter's day.

Daintree Green is the deep green of the leaves in the Daintree Rainforest in North Queensland.

Uluru Red is one of the many shades of Red that Uluru shows during the setting of the sun.

Hi,

 

As ever I am impressed by those who have by some art/magic have toiled to express a vast and varied continent in ink. Bravo!

 

Mostly I go for the surfing, but that's less than 1/10th of 1% mate.

 

There's more booty to be had  beyond the black stump. It takes time to make the crucial relationship between the land and the people.

 

A great land and  the people make it so.

 

Cheers

I have not purchased anything from JustWrite yet but I intend to - this range of inks are very well priced - they seem to carry pens in a price range to suit most - and they package their own products in environmentally friendly or re-usable packaging. To top top it off Blackstone is only an hour and bit drive from my house. While I was in the RAAF I built a place at Ripley which was about 5 minutes drive from Blackstone.

For those into sheening ink, barrier reef blue has a nice sheen.

On the one hand - cute little bottles.

On the other hand - value-for-money pouches.

On the gripping hand - concentrates where I can select my own concentration.

 

Decisions, decisions.

 

 

Extra brownie points for identifying the literary allusion above...

Wow. You'd pretty much 'have' to buy all 5. How could you choose between them?

I've gone with the 30ml smaller bottles set to see which of the 5 I like better. But future topups will be the pouches for me.

 

Congratulations on the new inks Kevin, I have been waiting for the line to come out.

YES! BRB is beautiful (well, they all are) and I loved being able to mix to my preferred concentration/shade. Thanks, Kevin. Oh - two words: Blue Diamond! :D
