Members ask ... What is the best PURPLE or VIOLET for (insert purpose). This thread is not for comparisons or detailed reviews. Merely for you to show us some of your samples.

 

Also, some purples are actually burgundy or pink so let's not get to crazy with eliminating colors. If it looks Red to you, put it here.

 

 

BTW, Blue was here.

Brown was there.

Red was in the woods.

Did you ask about violet (or was it vioLeNt) purples?

Green was leafing us.

Orange is bouncing around.

Black is back.

Here be Pink.

Yellow is Spot On.

Jim says we must share our Black-n-Blues or was it Blue-Blacks?

What you can't see is the great sheen.

On 4/26/21 I've started hiding my posts with missing images and I've been uploading the images to the new FPN server.  If you don't see the image in the first few pages, look towards the end. I've also tried to ad the names to the images so that these are searchable.

Noodler's North African Violet (NAV) diluted.  BTW, Noodler's NAV and Midway Blue are an amazing mix.

Love Sacbiosa and, for some reason have a soft spot for Purple Wumpum. Hardly ever use the other two though.

I'm lucky enough to have some "Ink of Witch" but not in a pen. I'll try and dip some tomorrow.

I fell in love with this ink when I saw Saskia_Madding's writing samples of it, so I was excited to receive my bottle this weekend. I usually don't like purple for a full page of notes, but this one is the exception. I've been playing with the ink all day and there's something about the color and the flow that has me hearing Nina Simone singing "I put a spell on you," so I figured why not :P I know Sailor already has an Ink of the Witch for Bung Box, but I think this Black Purple that they made for SankoDo is the witchy winner in my book :)

      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

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
