Extreme Dry Times For Noodler's Sequoia On Rhodia



jdivitto

Recommended Posts

I loaded up one of my pens (Homo Sapien F) with Noodler's Sequoia Green recently and noticed on Rhodia paper, it takes about 30 minutes to dry (yes, minutes). Dabbing it with blotting paper helps a bit, but still takes an crazy amount of time to dry. On photo-copy paper it dries within seconds.

 

Is this normal???

 

My other pens I have inked today have include a TWSBI 580 with Lamy Blue and a GVFC Classic with De Atramentis Puccini. Both these inks dry relatively quickly.

 

I'm wondering if I have a bad batch or do some inks simply take forever to dry.

I've found that all my inks take longer to dry on Rhodia paper.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

I have sequoia in a Parker Vacumatic, and I find it takes about 20 seconds to dry(just tried it on a dotpad I had laying around). I think it might be an issue with the ink, or your nib might be crazy wet for some reason. I have heard stuff about very saturated inks "settling" so maybe that might be the issue. The longest drying ink/paper combination for me has been apache sunset, but even that was nowhere near 20 minutes.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
