Show Us What Ink You're Using Today!

We've got a show us what pen you're using today thread, but I couldn't find a show us what ink you're using thread, so...

 

I'll go first!

- Asa-gao is a really nice saturated blue when in a wet pen. It looks really nice out a juicy 1.1 stub.
- DeA Aubergine is a dark purple in a wet nib, but still noticeably purple. No mistaking it for black like PR Ebony Purple. This might be my first bottle of DeA ink.
- Verdigris is wonderful! Flows and behaves well, as I've come to expect from R&K inks. A blue black, with just enough green to be interesting. Definitely getting a bottle!
- Matador is a really nice true red. Not too much brown, not too much orange. A great companion to the the darker Red Dragon and Oxblood inks... I think I like Diamine's reds.
- Yama-guri... Performs quite well, I just can't seem to connect with any brown inks.
- Sherwood Green is another nice ink from Diamine. I just don't know if I need another bottle of standard green ink with PR Sherwood, MB Irish, and Gruene Marine...
- Antietam, IMO, is Noodler's attempt matching Ancient Copper. I like AC better.
- Tsuki-yo is kind of boring, I'm not a big fan of plain blue-blacks. Reminds me a lot of Noodler's Bad Blue Heron. Does have some sheen though.
- Baystate Blue. It's a staple in my inky EDC. Need I say more?

So many inks, so little time...

That is some weird looking Tsuki-Yo in the swab type area. I've never gotten that red sheen out of it. That looks a bit like Sailor Sei-Boku.

Preferred Tsukushi over Yama-Guri.

My bottle of Diamine Sherwood Green started having issues fairly quickly. Loved the color, not the long-term usability of it.

One thing that I like about Iroshizuku inks is that the color is exactly what it says on the tin so-to-speak. Ajisai really looks like a purple hydrangea flower. Asa-Gao does look a lot like blue morning glories.

Looking good!

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

Not always but I do get to see sheen out of Tsuki-yo (even with an extra fine nib).

 

Today is just like everyday, I have:

Pelikan Tanzanite, Topaz

Pilot Asa Gao/Tsuki-yo

J.Herbin Perle Noire

I have never seen a red sheen out of Tsuki-Yo, even out of the wettest writing modern pen I have. Even under 6500K daylight bulbs. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. I usually don't even get sheen out of Sei-Boku unless I have filled the pen a couple of times without flushing.

The Tsuki-yo text was written with a TWSBI 580 F, that is fairly wet for a fine nib. The "swab" was done with the same pen with 1.1 stub. Paper was Rhodia Dotpad. I usually don't get sheen out of it in my daily writing with EF-M nibs.

So many inks, so little time...

I was just doing some stress-relief scribbling in my journal with Diamine Amazing Amethyst and it looks real cool, I think.

I have class, TAing, and a bunch of homework to do today, so will for sure end up using MB Dandy Turquoise, Noodler's Lexington Grey, Kobe Stone Grey, Noodler's 54th Mass, and Noodler's La Reine Mauve over the course of today. Maybe others! I have Apache Sunset in an Ahab right now and it's just soooo fun.

No kidding, you've got some real nice exclusive inks there! P&M Cigar looks great, I should've gotten a bottle during the recently group buy.

It turns out that I did get ink for my birthday - Iroshizuku chiku rin.

(My very first Iroshizuku ink - yay!) And I love it.

And it doesn't look terrible on cheap notebook paper, either. :)

The ink matches nicely with the pen (is that a Prera?)

      @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.
