Happy Easter FPN

 

My name is Nick Stewart. I'm an Ink Geek currently engaged in a self imposed project testing fountain inks with water and household bleach. It’s all part of a process to look at things in a different way, particularly things that we simply take for granted. As handwriting gives way to technology, what will happen to all those gorgeous inks? As this project already demonstrates, many of them reveal wonderful unique magical properties - that are already causing a bit of a buzz - and what I hope the project will deliver is a batch of new techniques that will both excite and enlighten anyone and everyone who engages with the medium of fountain pens and ink in the future. Anyway, it’s a little different and all good fun. Do keep in touch, the project has a way to go yet. With over 240 inks tested so far and circa 450 (that I know of) yet to do - I haven’t even started creating the real art yet.

Welcome home I guess.  Pull up a stump and set a spell.  Do 'smores come into play?

Had a look at your website.  Very interesting stuff.  
Normally I point new people on FPN to hit the "View New Content" and sometimes to the pinned Index to the Ink Reviews Forum.  But it's clear that you have been doing this for a while.  So instead I would suggest you look at some of the artwork related threads.
