Halloween, we are sharing a brain... I love those blue inks.

 

As you might already suspect, I've been thinking exactly the same thing! Separated at birth? ;)

Time for Iroshizuku Blues swabs and Kon-peki action shots :)

 

Disclaimer: please don't overly criticize my Kanji lettering practice; I'm just learning :)

 

Paper used: LIFE Noble Note (graph) and Tomoe River (plain)

No matter how much I explore, Kon-peki remains one of my all time favorite blues. However, since Amberlea introduced me to Sailor Yama-dori, I find myself going between Kon-peki, Yama-dori, Tsuki-yo and Montblanc Balzac.

I think I also introduced you to Balzac. :)

 

Great stuff here, thank you. Be sure to look at Ig's suggestion for a Tardis Blue.

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

If someone wants a TARDIS blue, I recommend this:

Yes, I'm getting some now as I watch BBC

I love the Balzac you gave me; it's better than Ama-Iro and really reminds me of MBs original Turquoise, but even more saturated!

I do like the Pelikan Edelstein inks, and Topaz works really well for me.

Wonderful. As a lifelong language learner (and professor), I am glad to see your skills. Keep at it!

Here are the blues I have currently at the homestead. My attempt at organization was only partially successful. Not a fan of blue-black or dark blues, so mine are mostly bright medium and cyan.

This is great; I never realized how much shading Empyrean has! And many thanks for the kind Kanji encouragement :)

Looks good here.

Here's a dark blue/blue-black I made with Chesterfield Capri and Blackstone Black Balled. I call it Why So Blue? Black. I think it looks better on paper - what do you think?

Nice! Did you do a Q-tip wash with water or ink, or did you use a brush?

For Christmas I received one of those water brush pens.... and uh... I sort of went crazy. I did this to 135 of my ink cards.

135? How many do you send total? :yikes: I tried to do a few washes and ended up losing most of the ink to a paper towel.

This brush is awesome. I didn't lose any cards.

Favourite accessory. I love them, glad you do too. They can awaken magic in some inks but destroy giants at the same time . . .

You're right. This is a gorgeous colour. It won't be readily available though will it? Bit like eating a Dodo's egg, so sad . . . :(
