So, You Want Shading, Do You?

Recommended Posts

That's absolutely gorgeous! It's interesting that it shades on absorbent paper as well as the good stuff. I also love the color itself, even without the breathtaking shading.

 

Thanks for keeping us updated and I can't wait to hear more.

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

Yep, if you were holding your breath, you would have turned blue and fell over...

If you think everything is going well... you obviously have no idea what is really going on!

Nice of you to share the recipe for this blue, but does it shade? :D

I seem to have here some Black Swan in... uhhh... Icelandic... ummm... something blue. Minty bathwater?

 

Dry time is good, waterproof beyond reasonability for the color, and oh, at least on Rhodia and Clairefontaine, that shading...

 

Still working on this one, but it's coming along nicely enough that I'd share it as a preview. Shown here on Rhodia.

Great colour and great photo :D

I'm actually quite curious to know. The shading is fantastic...

I'm feeling teased.

I want to make sure it's stable, and that the shading doesn't vanish as the ink gets to know itself; I'm going to cook up another batch tonight and let it sit for a couple of weeks.

 

I could probably send out a sample or two, in the meantime.

"...as the ink gets to know itself" ??? What is that? LOL

 

Oh, I am learning a lot here. I am new,new,new to the language and all and I am enjoying my time here…. I was about to ask what shading was when I saw this… Very graphic. Thanks! You did a great service to novices in the art of writing.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
