What a lovely review, many thanks. If I could only have one ink, Scabiosa would be a serious contender.
I can't imagine the day but . . .
I did whittle things down to a "core palette" of seven for a while, and in my head I can play
"If you only had five . . ."
"If you only had three . . . . " (I am actually quite keen to try this discipline!)
"If you only had two . . . . "
with Scabiosa making it through each of those rounds . . . .
and I do believe that if I had to choose between "my violet" and "my green", I don't think the green would be the winner!
I like how this review gives a taste of the many aspects of this ink, rather than trying to confine it into a single box!
I have been looking for an ink that has the lovely blue-violet color of "fresh" Scabiosa without all the subsequent alchemy. The closest I've come so far is Birmingham Pens' Violet Starling, but I'm still in the testing stage with that one and would love to hear any other suggestions?
