I originally posted this at First Stop, but some of us thought it should really be here:
I have been fascinated with the Lavender Black IG ink since I first saw it mentioned. I'd love to make it one of my everyday inks. However, I'm having some trouble getting it to consistently work the way that I like.
The writing in the first picture used a simple dip pen with a fairly broad nib. Not surprisingly, it thins out after a few words, as I didn't re-dip. But it was so great for those first few letters!
I've also tried it with different Preppy nibs. The second picture shows some unusually good results at the top, then fading quickly. I don't know just what's going on.
In another test (not shown) I got pretty good results from 0.2mm and 0.3mm Preppy nibs, but lighter than I like.
