Do you remember the pen and/or paper?

The paper is Astroparche and the pen was a TWSBI 540 with a broad nib (I think) but that was my preferred pen at the time.

Thanks - looks really good! I wish I could get my Scabiosa to look like that ...

You need a really wet pen.

Golly, that Ink of the Witch is quite yummy!

Also Voorhout Violet. In the conspiracy theory where all Akkerman is relabeled Diamine (in funky bottles!), would this be Damson?

I see Kobe #9 is finally back in stock at VanNess (so not limited edition - phew!). I'd love to see a swatch of that one.

Did anyone ever try PenBBS Misty Mountains?

Hmm, now that you mention it...

This one is at the top of my want list. Now, if I could only find a source with a reasonable shipping price to me.

Thank you very much for the note, @pgcauk

Yes, that Mountain of Ink review and another - Fountain Pen Pharmacist - are what got me interested in Misty Mountain. 

Ever since I received samples of Barossa Grape and Purple Rock I have developed a fascination with Oster's violets/purples, which has also been spurred on, in part, by your previous pics of sample writing and such. Sydney Lavender is definitely at the very top of my wants and Summer Storm is very close - also Purple Jazz/Soul and Charcoal. And I believe Dark Chocolate and Berry D'Arche are very good candidates for my quest to find an ink that captures the color of the purples yams like you can see in my profile photo.

 

(And now my interest in Damson, which I have previously liked but not loved, is re-ignited ...)

      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.
