Just got Cassia today, and I love it! Great color, and sheen. Thanks for inspiring me to get a bottle!

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?

 

 

Seriously wet ones . . . :unsure:

Thanks, Tas, the Scabiosa is much better in a wetter pen.

And Cassia is really a delight!

Ooo, Scabiosa in a Skyline, wonderful combo. Might try that over the weekend. I want to fall back in love with Scabby . . .

Wow. Interesting! They just turned to a gray color, or is it my computer screen?

One of the most interesting inks I've used: Private Reserve Burgundy Mist. It's really complex, and the sheen is intense.

It's a beautiful sort of lilac, a purple gray.

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

OK. Here's another of my favorites: Black Swan in Australian Roses. I know, there was some controversy about the formulation, but the shading is great with this!

Sasakia charonda, the Japanese Emperor Butterfly, a beautiful violet.

 

Beautiful color! And the name really makes it even more appealing!
