My samples of Purple inks are coming in, but let's proceed on to my goal to collect the rainbow.

So how about blues? I don't like blues with hints of purple. I need something like a royal blue.

I will be using Claifontaine tablets. I may use an italic nib/medium, so shading is a bonus.

 

Thanks!!!

Browse thru the samples on the Goulet web site.

 

But be aware that most monitors are not color calibrated, and it is very unlikely that Brian has a color calibrated photo setup. So there is some amount of color variation that the sample is subject to. But a simple reference is the paper he is writing on, it should be WHITE. If you see a color cast on the white paper, then your monitor will not display the ink color correctly.

I've been loving Noodler's Liberty Elysium lately. A true blue that writes really well. Exclusive at Goulet's.

The brightness of a blue is probably due to the presents of a yellow or purple. I think the quiet eloquence of

Private Reserve's DC Supershow Blue is a pure blue.

Noodler's Luxury Blue has some decent shadying (with my medium point Shaeffer Legacy) and is a nice blue, but not eye-grabbing electric blue like the Bay State Blue. Their Upper Ganges Blue is also nice without any violet/purple.

Baystate Blue has a bit too much red in it for my likes - but I know others adore it.

Mr Pen's (Diamine + secret ingredient) Radiant Blue? Diamine Presidential Blue?

DA Royal Blue is tinged towards purple.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

I always thought that purple was the color associated with royalty, hence most Royal Blues contain a certain amount. I have MB Royal Blue cartridges that definitely have some purple in the mix. Noodler's Blue is a great blue to me. Some of the Levenger blues are nice,too.

Baystate blue has a twinge of purple to it. It's a fun ink, but it's pretty mean, too. I have a steel nib I'd swear was stained with it (but it might just be my imagination)

Welcome aboard.

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

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
