Sorry the batteries ran out on my xray-vision
Batteries? You mean, you don't have special xray eyeglasses??? :)

 

Yes, I really do like the idea of having a whole bunch of different pens with one ink... maybe my Monaco Red/Brown/Burnt Sienna will benefit from this! Ditto with the Swisher's Apricot Orange.

Keith with a capital K

The factors that go into how a certain ink appears on paper are many:

 

type of nib-determines line.

rate of flow (feed)-determines amount of ink delivered to paper.

paper - finish of paper affects flow, performance of pen, and absorption.

temperature- affects evaporation rate.

humidity-affects rate of evaporation.

writing pressure and speed -affects quantity of ink delivered.

 

So even if we all use a q-tip to swab ink we will all need to be using the same paper and work in similar environments.

Nah, built into my genetical make-up :lol:. But the bio-eco-batteries do have to be charged every now and then. Generally, a nice cuppa will do the trick :D.

Oooooh... I think you will have to partake in the KCat Vial Ink Exchange Programme :lol:. I wouldn't mind trying it out.

 

Better make a list of all of my inks :D.

 

Warm regards, Wim

Great review, Wim! (I just read it today)

It's hard to believe that different pens produced such variety in shading with the same ink :o

I guess it's just another factor to take into account when choosing an ink---the fact that different nibs may produce different shades. Interesting stuff! Thanks for such a detailed review :)

Thanks for the kind words!

I must say it is a lot of fun doing a review like this, and very therapeutic too. Great escape from the hectic work life :D.

Nah, it isn't that bad, at least I don't think so :D.

Yes, me too. But whenever I check in, no one is there, but me.. :(

 

I'll keep on checking...
