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.

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.
