Love it. Love purples that have the sharp edge taken off. Oh ohh, think a new purchase is making it to the wish list.

These are wonderful!

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

Wow that's some amazing shading.

Very pleased. Put side-by-side to Thistle, and the shade (and shading) are similar --at least in the concentration I have of Thistle. I may have to do a face-off of those two...

Looks like fun,

 

You should give it a try --I'd love to see combinations that other people have made. In the right light, it has a similar quality to those "metallic gel" pens. Of course, it may be too bedazzling for most people's ink needs... ;)

These all look so amazing! Have any of the color combinations helped to reduce the amount of feathering the SG or RH inks normally have?

Current Wishlist:

Visconti, Visconti, and...more Visconti! (And some ST Duponts too). (Ok fine, getting on the Omas and Montblanc trains now too. Toot toot.) (And maybe on the Montegrappa one too, but only for the Miyas.)

I generally have never had any problem with feathering with SG or RH --at least not on the paper I use --mostly Rhodia and Clairefontaine. None of my inks behave well on copier paper, so I gave up trying. But it does seem that the mixtures are quite well behaved.

Now if only they would make a bleu ocean with silver instead of gold, I would be forced to give them all my money.

 

*sigh*

 

Please, somebody make this happen?

Incoming iPhone pictures of my concotion, Stormy Yankee (the name makes me giggle):

 

http://i.imgur.com/MdhBbtz.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/MxLlIgw.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/KZWnuqy.jpgIt was an approximately 1:1 ratio of Stormy Grey and Chesterfield Ink - Antique Yankee

(approximate because I just eyeballed it because I live dangerously.)

 

Edit: It ended up turning all weird and gunky after an hour or so, so I can't say I recommend mixing these two. Super sad, since it was so pretty.

I went a little overboard with the luster. I'm very new to dip nibs so ignore the writing style.

Too bad. It is a nice dark blue, but if there's gunkiness, then not a good outcome. Good name, though!

Wow! I like the ink --AND your handwriting! Tell me more about this "Designer Luster" --what is that? Looks great!

The glitter made a film along the barrel of my piston demonstrator. It still wrote fine, but there was a clear reaction going on in there. I had to disassemble and clean it out. Sad sad sad. There was even a nice reddish sheen happening too, I was hoping it'd work out.

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
