Fsu Ink Color Help



breathelove

Recommended Posts

I'm new to the forum and in need of desperate help. I'm an artist and I have sold some commissioned work for Christmas involving the Florida State University (FSU) logo and I'm having a hard time finding an ink to match it. I read in a post on here back in 2011 or 2013, I can't remember, about somebody liking Private Reserve Fiesta Red as a match to the Garnet color in their logo. Has anybody else used this ink? Or does anybody have any suggestions for an ink that would match the garnet for FSU? I will be mainly doing line work, but I'd prefer a smooth ink that doesn't have variations in color. If I can't figure out any other colors, I'm just going to order the PR Fiesta Red and hope for the best. At $10 a bottle, usually, I can't afford to buy oodles of ink to try. The amount of reds are endless so I'd go broke. ;) Thanks for the help!

Have you looked at the swab comparisons on Goulet Pens? You can get sample vials of a bunch of different contenders rather than buying a full bottle.

FSU student here. I would go with Diamine Syrah or PR Black Cherry. The FSU version of garnet was created by mixing red and purple to a certain shade, so it's not the bright standard red you would think of normally, nor is it really a true purple. If you want a good idea to compare colors, the RGB code is R,84 - G,1 - B,21.

Okay, thank you! I'll give those a try! :)

I didn't know I could do that. I'm new to ink and pens and such. I usually just use Microns. Thanks for the help! :)

Samples are even on sale right now, so it's a good time to try 'em! :)

The fountain ink database is awesome; it doesn't have *every* ink, but it has many inks, and they're sortable by hue. If you hover over the hue box, it'll tell you the value. (The RGB code posted has a hue of 346.) http://www.fp-ink.info/en/?

There's a fair number of inks in that range, including Montblanc Burgundy, Diamine Red Dragon, and Organics Studio Mercury. I don't see any that are an exact match, but you might be able to fake it, or do a little mixing to adjust things ever so slightly.

wow, thank you! I'm feeling much more hopeful now. This has been bothering me since last week because i was coming up empty.

      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
