Very cheerful.

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

I seem to confuse Tropical Green with Dark Forest all the time, TG is darker than I my mental image of a "tropical" green, whatever that means.

On the left you have a dry exposed nib, on the right you have a wet hooded nib. I thought it would be interesting to share this difference.

Pen on the left: Lanbitou 3059 with Wing Sung F nib.

Pen on the right: Luoshi 325.

Ink: Rohrer & Klingner Verdigris.

Paper: Clairefontaine 90g/m.

I did some comparisons with Rohrer & Klingner Verdigris since I liked it from the get-go. It's picky with the paper and with the pen, it's too dark to see any green in fine wet nibs, but once you broaden a bit it shows a lovely dark deep green. Definitely worth the whole bottle IMO. It's quickly reached my Pelikan 4001 Dark Green in terms of daily use.

Here's a comparison with Diamine Kelly Green, even though they're so different, I just wanted to see how much different they are in close quarters. But I didn't account for the fact that they're in too close quarters, so Kelly got corrupted by the darker tone of Verdigris, so I re-did this comparison a second time, with much much better results.

If you want a nice dark green leaning towards blue and a nice bright spring-grass green, these are the colors I recommend as of today.

After my RK Verdigris comparisons, I got curious about comparing my two earliest green inks.

Diamine Kelly Green is in a Pilot Pluminix B.

Pelikan 4001 Dark Green is in a wonderfully wet Wing Sung 618. I really like this combination since Dunkelgrun is a dry ink and needs a generous feed and a wet nib to truly shine.

I think I’d like slightly more acid in the yellow green. And a touch brighter. But it’s a nice shadow and light combo. The Verdegris is nice too, but can read too blue a lot.

Thanks to the greatest pen friend of all times, MsRedPen, I could ink up a pen with GvFC Olive Green and it's a lovely murky green, leaning towards greengrey and ocre. I really like it, but the price is steep, so I'll wait until a few paychecks start to come in before I consider it. But I think I'm going to consider buying a bottle in the future, unless I find a doppelganger ink that's as well-behaved and cheaper. Because Olive Green is very well-behaved, more than I expected.

RBN, I am happy you liked the Olive green!

So nice to see your comparisons :)

I am so getting a bottle of Alt-Goldgrun. I thought it was one of those unduly overrated colors, but nope, it's as fascinating in person as it appears in pictures. I'm so so thankful to MsRedPen, who made this comparison possible. :cloud9: Also, the more I use Olive Green the more I like it. It's gone straight into my wish list of inks I'd like to acquire as soon as I'm able.

This is what I was saying about Salamander being so dark you can't see the green when it's in a wet writer. Apart from Verdigris which came out practically blue here, I haven't the foggiest on why, while Salamander is basically a black with a hint of murky green. It's a very intriguing color.

My notes on these doodles say "Diamine Kelly Green" but I find it hard to believe. This must have been right after an inky experiment with another color, because this is NOT the usual Kelly Green.

Pen: Generic 0.7.

Paper: Clairefontaine.

Or perhaps a mix of Alt-Goldgrün and Kelly Green.

It looks like Alt-Goldgrün.

 

Or perhaps a mix of Alt-Goldgrün and Kelly Green.

I traced back the inky experiment I did before these doodles. Of course it's the one with Monteverde Rose Noir (sent by a dear pen friend!).

I forgot to "flush" the nib and feed by screwing the converter down a bit to let the true Diamine Kelly Green come out, and that Alt-Goldgrun-like color was the result. But it's actually a recently-mixed Kelly Green. Inky experiments are so fun! Thank you, Lgsoltek, for suggesting them!

Thank you, so kind!

It's an easy thing to do, just let a drop of ink fall into the slit between the tines of an inked-up pen, and start writing right away. It works best with completely different colors, and with a dark ink added to a light color. The reverse sometimes doesn't work.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese
    • Texas42
      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
