    Help Identifying An Ink

    I recently purchased a Parker 21 and it had this wonderful ink inside. I was wondering if any ink finatics can identify it.

    Fsu Ink Color Help

    I'm new to the forum and in need of desperate help. I'm an artist and I have sold some commissioned work for Christmas involving the Florida State University (FSU) logo and I'm having a hard time finding an ink to match it. I read in a post on here back in 2011 or 2013, I can't remember, about somebody liking Private Reserve Fiesta Red as a match to the Garnet color in their logo. Has anybody else used this ink? Or does anybody have any suggestions for an ink that would match the garnet for FSU? I will be mainly doing line work, but I'd prefer a smooth ink that doesn't have variations in color
  3. The Airmail pen company is well known in India and abroad and there are already several reviews about their pens on FPN and elsewhere. They are known for making ED pens with transparent barrels. They also make Jumbo sized ED pens (6.3 inches approximately when closed, even longer if posted) in the series called 71 consisting of 71J(Jumbo marbled) and 7JT(Jumbo with transparent handturned barrel). Their new model in this series is called the 71JB (already reviewed by manojd) which was so far offered only in black acrylic with an engraved cap band and domed end jewels. They have now introduced
  4. I have posted a few scans here and there on FPN. I have tried to scan multiple pages at once so posts would be self-consistent at much as possible. However, it has been on my mind whether I should do something to try to help viewers get the most accurate representation of the color. I see three main options: Do nothing. Hopefully the scanner is fairly well calibrated. Always try to include standard "reference" colors that hopefully will let people draw their own opinions about the color quality of the scan. (Most useful it the user is familiar with the reference color). Adjust the image
  5. I'm curious about the color progressions Pelikan celluloids go through over time. I know it's a topic of discussion in Japanese sections of the forum--people talk about the marked color changes in urushi, and in Waterman celluloid, but haven't seen any on Pelikans. Apologies if it is discussed online or a book I don't have... I like the green the light tortoise changes to almost more than the pristine light tortoise, for example, and it's fun to think about what these pens will look like a few decades on. I've tried to guess some of the progressions in color below. Pelikan enthusiasts and
  6. I have read here on FPN about spray painting preppies. (Using that special meant-for-plastic-spray-paint) I was wondering if I could spray paint a Pilot Metropolitan? I am considering purchasing the white one but I don't like the animal print design and was considering painting that part of the pen. I would take it all apart of course and tape up the the silver end and the open part very thoroughly. Any thoughts? Is it worth it to try or would it be a disaster? As the pen is only $15 I thought it might be safe to give it a try and it wouldn't be too big of a loss if it didn't go well.

    Pilot Prera Styles...

    Hello. I recently made my first Japanese pen purchase. It was the Pilot Prera. An excellent writer, with a nib akin to mercury: liquid metal... That smooth right out of the box. I WILL be buying more. One question though: Is the body, nib, size, etc of the demo or clear versions of the Prera, the same as that of the solid-colored Prera's? Please help if you have the infor for me. Definitely interested in more of these and at such a great price...Thanks and regards, Leroy
  8. Hi All! A "chemical" question: what is the effect of chlorine on inks? I know the impact on the environment and I try to use only totally chlorine free paper when possible, but I'm wondering: is there a difference in the way inks react on different kinds of paper: paper with chlorine, elementally chlorine free paper and totally chlorine free paper? I'm especially interested in the impact of chlorine on inks in terms of permanence: will inks fade away faster on paper that contains chlorine? Will this happen with permanent inks (iron galls or noodlers) as well? thanks, Fabio
  9. Boy gosh, I sure would like a rich royal blue celluloid or acrylic pen with bold crimson red veins. It would be my designated royal blue pen, and I'd put royal blue ink in it, and it would dry to show rich blue coloring and have a crimson sheen. Yes, I would really like a pen like that. Its color name would just be Royal Blue. I'd love a Noodler's Konrad with that color. In fact, I'd love several of them. (The Royal blue Lamy Safari's blue was not a rich ultramarine. It was just sky blue. Not good enough) But as for colors I'm very glad exist, I'm super happy that The Zuni Ahab is like j
