Inky T O D - Color Swatches - Violet - Purple - Please Post Your Pictures And Tell Us Your Thoughts

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 :)

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

No Diamine Grape????

 

 

Grape and I had a fight - grape won. So I don't play with grape anymore.

The violets that I have on hand are below. I like red-violet much more than blue-violet, so my selection is weighted on that side of the spectrum.

lgsoltek:

Your ink splatters are quite artistic! I love the way you show the special properties of these inks!

 

 

Thank you. I find the splashes show the inks as more saturated and bring out their sheen (if there is). They may not reflect the real writing experience but I like these rich colours!

A very nice lilac colored ink from de Atramentis. I love the color, but it smells like a cross between fabric softener and disinfectant. Not my favorite scent --from an ink company that I like very much. Oh well, they can't all be winners...

I like using Purple Wumpum despite all it's feathering and Ink of Witch is looking fab in my new Preppy 0.2mm which perfectly shows of it's colour by not laying down too dark a line.

I'm embarrassed to say that I've fallen out of love with Scabiosa. No idea why. It's not in any pen and ot calling to me at the moment. :mellow:

Your wampum is much lighter and grayer than my wampum. Must be the effect of using a glass pen.

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

I just got a bottle of R&K Scabiosa today. I think I must not have it in the right pen. The way it looks to me is really quite dull and drab. I was hoping for a more classic mauve, but it just seems to lie flat on the paper. Maybe an iron gall thing?

 

Are there certain kinds of pens that you'd suggest for this particular ink?

      @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.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
