FountainPensAndCoffee posted a topic in Inky ThoughtsDoes anyone know of an ink that would resemble most closely the ink that was used on the Marauder's Map in the Harry Potter movie? I really liked the color but there are so many different reds and browns out there. I'm trying to find an ink that would fit more closely to the color used on the map.
So my dad got into fountain pens, and the first thing I did was of course steal all of them. He bought me the two I'm using now so I can't recall the brand, but I have a flex nib and a narrow nib. They're good quality and durable thankfully- I'm the only one in my high school who uses fountain pens and people are constantly asking to borrow them, I worry myself sick watching them hold the pen upside down or perpendicular to the paper! Anyway, I'm brand new to this website, and am admittedly mostly here because I have some birthday money to blow, and what sixteen year old wouldn't promptly spend it on noodlers ink? I know there are a lot of newbies looking for help currently, but I"ll gladly take any advice or general tips, I've been casually using fountain pens since 15 and would like to get more serious about them. My main question, however, is whether or not it's worth it to get more than the standard blue and black and red ink (I do have anti feather and two shades of blue) when I'm in high school and would only be able to use colors for out of class activities (darn you public school- stifiling my creativity!), and which colors or styles of ink are known for being the most beautiful/usable on walmart college ruled paper. Right now I'm flirting with noodlers ink, but there's just so much variety!
