I can't believe 2018 is almost gone. We're now in November already! For this month, use two inks that so do NOT look good together.

 

Happy Halloween to all! Click here to read more about the 2018 project.

Sheesh November already!

This topic is tricky. The more I think about it, most colours go together: just about context and proportion. Perhaps something like two reds that are similar enough to be jarring? Or am I overthinking this!?

Or is it about _mixing_ two colours...

Well I do think there are colour combos that look bad, haha. If you want to give it a twist by mixing, why not?

Here it is, a combo that I find really ugly: purple (R&K Aubergine) and cyano-turquoise (KWZI Menthol Green).

Reminds me of 90s shell suits: https://goo.gl/images/yYwC5m

 

Which, I have to confess to finding ugly! That and what seemed to me to be a corporate teal trend put me off teal for years. I'm finding I like teal inks now though.

I'm thinking spearmint, and bubble gum pink or maybe hot pink.

It is with some shock and discomfort that I just realised I don't have mint-coloured inks – and that's fine by me – but I have more than one or two pink inks (Lamy Vibrant Pink, Pilot Iroshizuku kosumosu, and Montblanc Ruby Red which is way more pale than red).

Yes, very much like that! Your google-fu is strong (but perhaps not so your stomach).  :P

I just thought of another 'colour' combination that is bound to cause psychological discomfort and alarm, and maybe trigger a visceral reaction:


  • urine and blood


I don't have a yellow enough ink, but for the blood part I'd probably use Diamine Oxblood.

I honestly cannot decide which two adjacent colours on this look worst together:

A bit late to the party, but here's mine. I've sort of cheated as I've used these for other months. But in looking at what I had inked up, I realised I'd hate these together on a page:

I don't have any I don't like together... so not posting any pictures. That said, I think Noihvo, Smug dill and Pseudo88 did manage to make me cringe, a little. But Lgsoltek, and evyxmsj, I like your color combinations. I like the clashing of the purple and turquoise, and the meshing of subtle brown and burned red. At least in your photos. I've combined purple and tealish inks on many of my pages. Not so much brown and burgundy, but now I think I will... :D :yikes:

Sorry, but the underlying colour of the images is weird.  I took it inside near a window in the middle of the day, I blame my phone   ;)

Hard for me to see what's ugly about that green ink you used, on its own. I'll have to look for some reviews. :)

Edit:

Ah. Similar to Rohrer & Klingner Smaragdgrün, then, which I've ordered and am looking forward to receiving; maybe a tad darker?

That's actually a pretty awesome and trippy combo! With some NickyStew-type work, I bet you'd be able to make an awesome nubula!

Edit: you already did make an awesome nebula, really 😄 just splatter some stars on with white paint and sell it on Etsy for $50!

even though you chose a brown and not an orangey yellow to 'partner' with the burgundy.
