Around late July, I found this thread on here: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/146143-metallic-gold-dip-pen-ink/ Being a crafty type person I had to try it, and thus started my dive into dip pens, and mixing ink for them. Specifically from the PearlEx Powdered Pigments. This is my current set of colors, along with my sample writing of them: I got so into making colors out of the powders, it was ridiculous. And then I started getting into customizing my dip pen holder, until I figured out and found the pieces to be able to make my own holder that holds feathers. So now I also own a small collection of feathers (with a plan for it to get bigger) and a wonderful dip pen holder. As well as a few extra because, what the heck I have so much fun with this, why don't I try and make some to sell on my Etsy. (Still working on that last part.) My first Feather and Holder of this kind. Got new Feathers.... And then got the new holders and started making combinations and ones to sell: And then finally today I figured out that the same trick I use to make the powdered pigment inks, I can actually use with my fountain pen inks. So now I've got a white-shimmer lavender and a gold-shimmer green: And through all of this I've been constantly referencing these boards and checking out things about dip pens, how to care for them, how to deal with them, and I just wanted to finally share all that I'd managed with them.
