Yu-yake (Sunset) - CRV - Group Review - 2014-11

 

The Iroshizuku Group Review color for November 2014 is Yu-yake ”Sunset”. It is a rich orange, which fades between light and somewhat dark, depending on how much ink the nib is laying down.

Please post your reviews and scans of the ink in this thread.
If you want to a partner for a Co-Razy View (CRV) of this ink, please write it up and mail it to Lou Erickson. (PM for the address.) If you want to do a Co-Razy View on your own, please do! Other reviews are welcome, too.
You can look at the full description of the Iroshizuku Group Review to see how this should work and what we’re doing.

Thanks to Rachel Goulet, who gave permission to me to use their beautiful product photo and swab.
More thanks to Amberlea who is always such an inky enabler.
Please PM me with any questions. I look forward to seeing everyone's results! :)

Is anyone willing to send me a converter-full? I forgot to order this when I laid in my Goulet samples. -_-

 

I'll have one in the mail to you tomorrow.

So, the other day, my friend Steve gave me some presents (whoo hoo) and among these was a mysterious green ink and orange ink. Given that he loves Pilot Iroshizuku inks... I thought it was Yu-Yake. Now, he's suggesting Edelstein Mandarin. I think I need to compare! Believe it or not, neither of those oranges are in my collection.

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

I have a Goulet sample of Edelstein Mandarin, so I'll do a comparison of it as well...and probably Diamine Autumn Oak.

Here's a brief comparison of Iroshizuku Yu-yake, Diamine Autumn Oak and Pelikan Edelstein Mandarin. The inks didn't scan well on my scanner, so I had to adjust the brightness and contrast a little, but hopefully it will give you an idea of the relationship between the three.

This is an interesting ink: pinkish-tannish-orangeish. Like faded creamsicle. Sort of.

Firstly, apologies to Lou to whom I should have sent this - as ever, work and life get in the way of life's pleasures...

Here are some more thoughts, now that I have the ink in both the Edison EF nib and in a juicy Neponset.

I should add that, thanks to the October group CRV, I ordered a bottle of Tsuki-Yo on the weekend. It's a lovely colour and not something I expected to fall in love with at all! Thanks, Lou, for being a wonderful enabler.

Sighhhh....my nibs all seem so wimpy by comparison....

 

Anyway, I got two Co-Razys in the mail.

Tom: Don't worry about sending it along if you don't have time. Writing a review on your own is still wonderful and appreciated!

 

Everyone: What great samples! It really is interesting to have a bunch of different pens and writing styles together at once.

 

I am behind on getting December's thread up, and way behind on finishing off my contribution for October, much less November... soon. This weekend.

For over a month now I've been the lucky borrower of two of Amber's TWSBI loaner pens: a translucent sapphire-blue 540 fitted with a Pendleton Angel ground on a TWSBI "M", and a translucent amber 540 fitted with an Art's Tomahawk ground on a TWSBI "B".

 

Because Amber has allowed me to keep these pens for an extended period of time I was able to do a sort of CoRazy view of two different inks in the amber 540 fitted with Art's Tomahawk. On the left, Noodler's Apache Sunset and on the right, Pilot iroshizuku yu-yake:

I tried an ink wash drawing with both inks: "The Mittens" of Monument Valley with Apache Sunset (yes, I do know they're actually on Navajo Tribal land but, well, artistic license and all that) and Mt. Fuji with yu-yake. I used the underside of the nib so that the line was narrow and when the ink was dry, I used a #4 watercolor brush to move the color around. When the wash was dry, I repeated the process where necessary. It was fun but dotPad paper isn't really a good paper for my unpracticed and amateurish ink wash technique -- I need something much more forgiving. ;)

      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.
