My sample cards so far. I've got about half done.

Breathe. Take one step at a time. Don't sweat the small stuff. You're not getting older, you are only moving through time. Be calm and positive.

WOW

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

That is the most visual means of use and comparison I have seen yet; wonderful!

Thanks, Stevesurf! How sweet of you to say that! Awwww...

Wow, amazing! I never thought to put the date on my labels, much less the ambient temperature and all the rest. I wonder how much more information I can get on those 1/2" diameter stick-on labels...?

I have 2 packs of Muji cards ready to do this sort of thing but haven't got around to it.

 

Highly addictive - and sadly really lovely to look through whilst having a coffee by the window when it's raining . . . :unsure:

Tas: That one is Monteverde Blue Black - a sample I got from Amber.

Phew, no need to add another onto my list. I have some MVBB and like it a lot.

Thanks.

 

Having had loads of free time over the holidays (which is about to come to an abrupt end) I've gone through all of my inks and swatches.

The only real dopplegangers I own in terms of appearance are ESSRI and Akkerman No 10.

Whilst they look near identical their behaviour is different. Akkerman seems to flow a little easier in some of my pens than the ESSRI. In others I sometimes really can't tell which is which.

 

Loving this thread.

Thanks so much Tas... I took time off during the Holidays... but I had family visiting, so really not much free time... :P

 

I want to get back to this thread... have a few nice ones to add. I guess, I need to go back to work to finally have some time to myself.... :lol:

I put some of those samples in the Pinks Packages.

The rich Montblanc Lavender is difficult to source within Australia - is there a substitute? Anything even close?

 

The closest one I was able to find in my stash is KWZI #18.... surprisingly, even the sheen is very similar.. (click on it to open a larger size)

The Famous Racing Green.... I digged out all my murkiest grayest inks... and this is the scan...

 

Some of them looked more similar in real life than on the scan.. All of them will do quite nicely if you don't have Racing Green and want a nice dark luscious green... :puddle:

Cyber6, thanks for that excellent match for Montblanc Lavender.

 

The problem is that I've never seen KWZI ink in Australia, we are starved for choice here, that's why it's so intriguing to read ink reviews on FPN. We can order inks online from the UK or USA but the shipping costs are high.

Well - the best thing to do is to organize group buy - it helps to cut shipping cost a lot.

 

 

I totally agree with Vis ... AND

 

You are in the hot spot of Powdered inks and Toucan Inks.

Took delivery of a gorgeous ink this morning. Octopus Schwarz. Yummy.

 

This now brings my doppleganger total to two. I think it's close enough . . . B)

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
