Since there's a thread for sheen, I think we can have a thread of showing shading (or the lack of shading) as well! http://s1.homezz.com/201501/5915/49290_o.jpg http://s2.homezz.com/201501/5915/49289_o.jpg http://s1.homezz.com/201501/5915/49288_o.jpg http://s1.homezz.com/201501/5915/49287_o.jpg http://s1.homezz.com/201501/5915/49286_o.jpg
tbzbbt posted a topic in Fountain & Dip Pens - First StopI am using Diamine Majestic blue in cartridge from in a Kaweco Elite M nib and bottled ink in convertor in a Diplomat Aero M nib. The thing is this: the Diplomat is consistently writing several shades darker than the Elite. I've tried letting the ink dry in the Elite feed to concentrate with minimal impact. I did a swab with the ink and the colour seems to be a lighter "diluted" shade of the same rich dark colour. Any suggestions for what this could be? Is it dampness in the feed from when I cleaned (and dried) the Elite? Its frustrating because the ink is not doing "exactly what it
I write with stubs (and will write with flex when I can afford some vintage flex) and I love inks that shade. They just look more interesting to me. I'm looking for a list of really intense shaders. Here are the shaders I've tried: Noodlers... Black Swan in Australian Roses, pre July '14. (RIP) Navajo Turquoise Apache Sunset Diamine ancient copper Iroshizuku Tsuki-yo (moonlight) What are your favorites?
I think I promised to do this one, so here is a quick note to complement the blue and green mini-reviews and the note on the black. Note: shake the bottle well before using. See below what happens if you don't. Hope this helps someone.
