Blue Merle - Organics Studio



visvamitra

Recommended Posts

Blue mMerle is supposed to be Blue / Black. For me it's more Grey / Blue. Anyway I like the vintage feel about this ink. I read that Organics Studio owner tried to recreate some old Carter's recipe. He's named the ink after - I believe - his dog Ernest (called after his favourite writer - Ernest Hemingway).

Visvamitra - you are producing great ink reviews - I particularly appreciate the chromatography bit, as I use fountain pens for sketching with a water-brush.

Thank you!

I have to say after several months of using this ink I still don't know how I feel about it. I'm not mesmerized by it really, but I find it compelling. It does have an old feel to it. I do keep coming back to it often. Of course it's in my Pelikan Cognac which certainly doesn't hurt.

Too bad that Organics Studio won't be making any more ink...at least not anytime soon.

 

From Organics Studio's Facebook page, as of Sept 24, 2014:

 

So as many of you have found out today, Organics Studio is officially on an extended hiatus. As you may or may not know, I recently started graduate school in the medical sciences at Weill-Cornell Medical College in New York. My goal was to try and keep Organics Studio going in the background, as it is very near and dear to my heart. Unfortunately, I've had to come to the sobering realization that this is not possible. I would be overcommitting myself, and both my hobby and my studies would suffer, which is not acceptable. So yes, as of this past week, Organics Studio is paused.

I met Tyler a few months ago at the DC Supershow - great guy and was making some very interesting ink. I'll be sorry to see it go, as I think increased competition only makes for better ink and more choices.

Yes, sadly, school has to come first (as it should). Which is too bad, because I really meant to get a full bottle of Blue Merle -- I liked the color a whole lot.

It is a nice color, and one that I wonder if I would have liked it had I tried it. The photos remind me of a slightly greyer version of Sheaffer Blue-Black, or a bluer version of J.Herbin Stormy Grey, or....I guess you could come up with your own mix.

      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.
