I know there are a select few of you here. I was hoping to gauge interest in a pass around box for various ink samples? It can be hard to get sample inks in NZ and so often one has to buy a bottle and hope for the best. I've just been through that process and wished there was an easier way! Some US and UK places have a great deal on ink samples but by the time they are mailed to NZ it gets expensive quickly.
Would anyone be interested in mailing around a box of 20-30 ink vials to discover some new inks? I'm happy to donate some stock to start things rolling. The idea would be that you load up 2-3 pens with your choice from the library and then hopefully replace the items with some of your favourite inks. I dont want this just to be a collection of unwanted inks, but more a showcase of interesting inks that you love and would like for someone else to discover too! To this end I'd be happy to put a few Iroshizuku inks in the mix! I know I'm very unlikely to reach the bottom of some of my 50ml bottles anytime soon! The reviews on FPN really helped me choose some great inks, but there is nothing like writing with them and discovering things for yourself.
Please reply in this thread if you are interested :-)
