  1. Scriptus Ink 2017 – Picture Review!! For anyone who doesn’t know what Scriptus is.. Scriptus is the name of the Toronto’s Pen Show and Writing Show. Every year (since 2015) Scriptus has release a Show ink which becomes one of the highlights of the Show. The Scriptus show ink is done in collaboration with KWZ. For Scriptus 2017, we have “150 Confederation Brown”, to celebrate the 150 years of Canada becoming a Confederation (proclaimed on July 1, 1867) Since I am totally biased… I will just let the pictures do the talking. LABEL: Sketch of the "Peace Tower", a Canadian Landmark. Is the focal clock Tower standing at the centre of the Canadian Parliament Building. 150 Confederation Brown, is an olive-brown that is extremely paper dependent. It seems to react to the different chemistry of every paper. On coated paper it looks more green, on more absorbent paper, more brown. On cardstock it shows almost black brown. Below is 100% cotton paper... Tester Pens: Three of my favorites EDC were used. In order (top to bottom), My extremely wet Sheaffer Legacy II with a stubbish Broad, my equally wet MB 149 with a luscious OBB and a lovely mid-wet Bexley (cant remember model). Ink was taken from the same bottle. Tomoe River below... and Rhodia.. Art from Alannah (@iamjoopiter) Credits: As with previous years (Maple Red 2015 and Northern Twilight 2016) the creative process is heavily manipulated by me. The decision is all Scriptus, if the Scriptus lords want me to start from scratch, I will oblige. The artistry in manufacturing is all KWZ, so you know you will get a great performing ink with lush colour and saturation. The creative label is original artwork from Alannah (instagram @iamjoopiter) and this year we had the honour to get Salman Khattak (our own FPN Calligraphy expert, goes by SMK) to do the fabulous writing.

    Howdy From Montreal !

    Hi y'all. I've have been using fountain pens as tools for a few decades now, but I seem to have acquired a few more of late. I've stumbled around FPN on and off for a couple of years--hunting down useful details. There's so much information floating around on FPN (contributed by knowledgeable, hard-typing, scribbling and photo-snapping folks) that I haven't felt I needed to ask much in the way of additional questions, or that I was competent to offer answers. But I suppose it's about time I was a little more participatory and friendly-like. So, hello! I do have an introductory query: as someone planning to attend the Scriptus pen event in Toronto in a week or so (October 29), I am curious if there is any particular strategy for saying hello (in advance) to other folks that will be there. Perhaps an FPN topic or place to hang out? I didn't see much under the Scriptus event itself on FPN, but maybe I am missing something? This will be my third year attending Scriptus. Its a great event, but pen shows are kind of frenetic affairs and not especially conducive to chatting or networking in my limited experience. Scriptus, being a one-day event, also limits the networking opportunities compared with some all-weekend shindigs of which I have heard.
  4. Question from a first time pen show attendee. Are tickets required for admission (as a general attendee, not a vendor) into Scriptus, the Toronto Pen & Writing Show? If so, when will the tickets be available? If not, what is the process or normal flow for admission? I guess what I am asking is if there will be a huge line-up waiting at the door to get in before the show, or if the peak admission time is more in the afternoon?

    Kwzi - Ig Aztec Gold !

    Ok People... hold on to your chairs.... IG Aztec Gold is here !!.. :lol: :puddle: I will apologize wholeheartedly to Konrad and Agnieszka... I harassed them enough to get this gorgeous ink... And they were so wonderful, they made sure I get this ink for Scriptus Toronto Pen Show... Is not an exclusive ink, I believe gorgeous inks like this should be enjoyed by EVERYONE.... It will be soon on your nearest favorite ink store. But for now.... IS ALL MINE !!!!! .... HA HA HA .... :D Lets start with with pics.... IG Aztec Gold... is actually an IGL ink.... (Iron Gall Light)... Let's say is the perfect Iron Gall ink for beginners... No worries about special maintenance !!! :wub: It goes down as a bright gold and immediately starts oxidizing to a lovely honey brown... (Golden Honey?)... I love this ink... :wub: .... This is a typical KWZ ink, feels wet and nicely lubricated (even for an IG)... the scent of vanilla will enchant your nose.... This ink is for you if: If you ever wanted a KWZI Honey with water resistance..If you ever wanted a lovely bright ink.... to use in the office, this will be a professional looking honey brown by the time your boss looks at your notes.. If you ever wanted an Iron Gall but were "scare" to try it out..If you just love KWZI and can't get enough of them... Pics of the oxidation process... Tomoe River and Card Stock... Red n'Black Paper For sketching is AWESOME... you can keep a tight dark line, and the wash will be warm honey color... :wub: Thanks so much Konrad and Agnieszka.... thanks for letting me bug you... If you guys would love a bottle, but can't make it to Scriptus Toronto (this Sunday October 30), drop me a line. I will put one aside for you. If you are coming to Scriptus Toronto, find me near the entrance ... I will have this and more KWZI with me.. C.
