Thanks to my fellow FPNers (read: enablers), I've purchased a Waterman Ideal 52 12/V Red Ripple. From the seller's photos, it looks like a touch of polishing may be in order. What's better to use: Wenol (red label), Simichrome (which I already have, for the Esties), or something entirely different?

 

Also, I assume a Sunshine cloth will be fine for the gold plated furniture, right...? 

 

And (since this is rolling along), what about 100% pure carnauba wax? Does that come into play?

 

Please advise, Oh Wise Ones.  :)

 

Why are there fourteen samples of dark plum ink on my desk? Because I still haven't found the right shade.

Is that a problem...???  : : : sigh : : : 

 

Update: Great. Finally found one I love (Lamy Dark Lilac) but I can't get more. Ah, life in my inky world....
