Scriptus Ink 2017 – Picture Review!!
For anyone who doesn’t know what Scriptus is.. Scriptus is the name of the Toronto’s Pen Show and Writing Show. Every year (since 2015) Scriptus has release a Show ink which becomes one of the highlights of the Show. The Scriptus show ink is done in collaboration with KWZ.
For Scriptus 2017, we have “150 Confederation Brown”, to celebrate the 150 years of Canada becoming a Confederation (proclaimed on July 1, 1867)
Since I am totally biased… I will just let the pictures do the talking.
LABEL: Sketch of the "Peace Tower", a Canadian Landmark. Is the focal clock Tower standing at the centre of the Canadian Parliament Building.
150 Confederation Brown, is an olive-brown that is extremely paper dependent. It seems to react to the different chemistry of every paper. On coated paper it looks more green, on more absorbent paper, more brown. On cardstock it shows almost black brown.
Below is 100% cotton paper...
Tester Pens: Three of my favorites EDC were used. In order (top to bottom), My extremely wet Sheaffer Legacy II with a stubbish Broad, my equally wet MB 149 with a luscious OBB and a lovely mid-wet Bexley (cant remember model). Ink was taken from the same bottle.

As with previous years (Maple Red 2015 and Northern Twilight 2016) the creative process is heavily manipulated by me. The decision is all Scriptus, if the Scriptus lords want me to start from scratch, I will oblige. The artistry in manufacturing is all KWZ, so you know you will get a great performing ink with lush colour and saturation. The creative label is original artwork from Alannah (instagram @iamjoopiter) and this year we had the honour to get Salman Khattak (our own FPN Calligraphy expert, goes by SMK) to do the fabulous writing.
