I like the color. :)

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

It's a bit more red in the photo. I had to edit the contrast a bit to show the shading, but I do have a second mix that resembles the photo. Now only if I can find a way to make a burned orange/brick color. That'd be cool!

Try Habanero.

Try Habanero.

 

That might make for an interesting combo. I'll have to pick up a sample with my next order. It'll be a TWSBI for sure.

Just for fun --a view of the inks I have in pens right now, with little icons swashed with a wet Q-tip. I was attempting to put them in some kind of order, but I don't know if this works... And apparently the light on my desk is really, really yellow, so I had to correct the tint, and it looks extra blue. Can't seem to find a good medium.

Diamine Meadow and Deep Dark Orange looks really nice. Your handwriting is amazing.

REEEALLY love Deep Dark Orange. Rich, complex. And if I loved green inks, I would really love Diamine's Meadow --it's great, but green ink really makes me edgy. Don't know why... ;)

This is AWESOME. Now, cut it in half and put it in a window... or in the window of a caboose. What fades first? BSB

From top to bottom, my guesses on what would remain...

 

BSAiR

Oxblood

RD might be legible

Bordeaux

Orchids would be legible but not the same color

Rouge Hemetite

AS will be readible

Habanero will still be there and in great shape

Ama Iro will be readible

Forest Green will look the same

Okay, I cleaned out pens... That is what I had inked in late September through October.

I like this. I'm going to start making a list too. How long do you leave it in the window for fade tests? Maybe I'll fold in thirds and do a water test on one side, too.

In my first fade tests, I did water tests in the center. I discovered that ink that was exposed to water faded faster than the ink that was just exposed to light.

The 2013 test had me doing it in sections like this:

I then cut it into several pieces so I could line up and compare the washed and the regular inks.

You will see dramatic results within the first month. The 2013 Fade Olympics lasted 1 year.

Don't forget to post that on the Fade thread.

Yes m'am! It'll be a while since I'm just now starting to make a list of inks in use. :)

I'll put 'em to the test! Now, if I can find a sunny window where the cat won't shred the paper... :) I'll try the office, with an eastern morning sun exposure...

      @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.
