Another satisfied customer here. I ordered the inks on the 17th (granted, it took a while to get posted out - 7 days, but there was a disclaimer when I went to checkout, so I wasn't too worried about it). It arrived today, and I have to say, it was quite well packaged. The pouches had been snap sealed to prevent leakages, and everything arrived intact. I can't wait to try them out, and plan on writing up a few reviews. I purchased the bright blue, green and orange.

 

The only thing that I wanted to mention was that I no longer see the 150ml and 400ml pouches available for sale. Are they sold out, or are these options no longer available? (I haven't even used the inks yet, and I'm already thinking about how to get more :wacko: someone get me some help).

 

We discontinued the 150 and 400ml pouches because the demand was so low but now that the inks have become more well known we will try them again.

Please make the black more saturated or release a deeper black!

Sydney customer here looking for a nice deep black!

 

I'm currently talking to a German based OEM ink manufacturer about a Permanent Blue and Black to compliment the Toucan range and these will be much more saturated inks. I'll post here when I have news about them but it may be some time yet. But these inks won't have Toucan's low maintenance and fountain pen "friendliness". Unfortunately the more saturated an ink is (or any solution) the greater the risk of the solute (the dye in these inks) crystallizing, leading to high pen maintenance and flow problems.

 

We've also been mixing the Toucan inks to try and make a darker black and a small amount of crimson added to the black has worked best so far. When we get time we're going to develop a mixing chart for these inks and publish some ink mixing recipes. We may even throw it open to our customers and invite submission of ink recipes in some type of competition with ink and pen giveaways for the most popular recipes.

Adding a dark red to black to darken it would make sense. Whenever I have split out the dyes of a black ink with chromatography, they usually have a red component.

 

Meanwhile I await with bated breath your Permanent Black and Blue.

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

Yeah, I noticed crimson really doesn't like shading at all.

 

The blue is nice though (the royal blue, I think?)

Dale and I won't be organizing it this time, I think Sinistral1 may be persuadable. :)

In fairness, though, I think you should use your own inks...

Amberlea - before you go wild with this, take a good look at her face and the fact that she has a mustache. What would Leonardo think if his masterpiece ended up with a lime green 'stach??

Breathe. Take one step at a time. Don't sweat the small stuff. You're not getting older, you are only moving through time. Be calm and positive.

      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.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
