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

I gave away my Gemstone green and I regret it; it holds up in fade tests. I've never seen the Always Greener.

 

BTW, do you have pictures of your ink cabinets?

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

I have no cabinet --just the entire right side of my desk top:

Scary, isn't it? ;)

Scary for sure! How many ink bottles have you knocked right off the side? If that were my desk, I'd need a safety net.

Close calls, for sure! Luckily, the cat knows better than to go anywhere near. At least while I'm awake...

So are the Levengers behind the ink pots?

No, orange. He may have gotten into the Oranje Boven...

Yes, right -- just in front (below) the Herbin 1670 Inks. Current count is 104 bottles. Do you think an intervention is appropriate? ;)

Yes absolutely. You have too many bottles of ink. You should obviously send some of them to me! Because I'm pretty sure I *don't* have 104 bottles. Yet....

:lticaptd:

Okay, I actually just counted (that's what spreadsheets are for, right). I have 98. :blush: Mind you, a couple of them are really little, and came with a J Herbin glass pen a friend was giving away, and I don't actually know if those are FP safe.... And the four KWZI bottles on order are just that. On order. As in, not yet actually in my possession (and since they're not yet paid for, not technically mine yet, either).

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.... B)

Thanks for the perspective, Ruth! I was thinking I was far beyond the reasonable limit, and there you are in the same league as me. Phheww!

 

I have 77 inks (including a few samples). I thought I was crazy and out of control... Apparently not, yet :lol:

 

I predict that it won't be long before you're rounding 100! Splendid!

It was a rough estimate. When I took the time to count them, it was a sobering experience... :)

Another inky portrait of the mighty fountain pen. One of my favorites in green stripes, the intrepid Pelikan 100:

Well, this is my theme song ...

 

I'll start with Baystate Blue, but I don't know when to stop.

Yes --at least that's what the bottle says. I *may* have added some other ingredients over the years (I've had these Levenger inks for a really long time!), but I couldn't swear. It serves as my bright green if ever I need one... ;)

      @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

      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

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now.

      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
    • A Smug Dill
      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.
