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).

Create a Ghostly Avatar and I'll send you a letter. Check out some Ink comparisons: The Great PPS Comparison 

Don't know where to start?  Look at the Inky Topics O'day.  Then, see inks sorted by color: Blue Purple Brown Red Green Dark Green Orange Black Pinks Yellows Blue-Blacks Grey/Gray UVInks Turquoise/Teal MURKY

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.
