Those boxes are super cool! Photos aren't too shabby, either.

Thank you! I'm not usually that artistic :-)

Chesterfield is re-branded Diamine ink sold on xfountainpens.com. There are many theories as to which Diamine color corresponds to which Chesterfield ink, but I'm content saying that this is a very nice blue regardless of name.

That Iro Ama-Iro looks fantastic, SujiCorp12345! Really light feelings but appears saturated and mellow enough to use for every day tasks.

Excellent! I'm a devoted Halloween fan, so I strongly approve of your choice!

 

But today, I am using Diamine Oxblood (also Halloween-y!) in a Duocraft pen with a 3-tined music nib. Very fun!

That thing on the bottom looks like the host plant should immediately be subjected to 2-4D, Trimec, or RoundUp. Looks highly invasive and capable of producing tons of seeds.

Ha ha :-)

 

It was in a bouquet I was given, so not gathered from my garden. It's Echinops bannaticus "Blue Globe" - they are quite common and aren't very invasive.

Nagasawa Kobe Sumaura Seaside Blue! Love it.

 

The photo makes it look more green (at least on my computer) than the name suggests. Is it a blue-green or teal? Oh, and your handwriting looks amazingly beautiful!

Thanks to everyone for the great suggestions and images! I just had to get a bottle of the Iroshizuku Ama-iro --it's just the right light blue that I've been looking for. I have a lot of turquoise, but I wanted a real "sky blue."

 

And the R&K Alt Goldgrün looks very intriguing! I may have to give that one a try!

I want to say it's a green-grey-blue. Not quite blue, not quite green, and a very moody, subtle, dusty colour. Maybe a muted teal? :lol: Perhaps that particular sea has a lot of seaweed lurking beneath the surface. Thank you for your kind words about my writing! :)

Never pick a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel.

      @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.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
