Not BLACK - but gray or grey.

Members ask ... What is the best Gray for (insert purpose). This thread is not for comparisons or detailed reviews. Merely for you to show us some of your samples.

Now, we aren't looking at BLACK or blue-black, but blue grays count.

Show us your stuff!

BTW, Blue was here.
Brown was there.
Red was in the woods.
Did you ask about violet (or was it vioLeNt) purples?
Green was leafing us.
Orange is bouncing around.
Black is back.
Here be Pink.
Yellow is Spot On.

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

I once upon a time had a sample of this. (thanks, Amber!)

Sample of some of my old notes written in Diamine Grey. I've added a comparison to Noodler's Black as well.

Grey with greenish bias but shades well in the right pen . . .

Really neutral, excellent for mixing. Can't make it shade in anything I own though . . . :(

OH, somewhere I have a sample of De Atramentis Christmas Cinnamon. It's also a silver gray.

I wish I had a photo of this, but I accidentally mixed some 54th MA into a sample of Fuyu-Syogun and made a mix that maintains the nice gray while shading pretty darkly. It leans juuuust a hair more towards blue or green than Fuyu by itself does. One of the prettiest things I've ever had come out of a pen! No clumping/precipitate either.

Pens: TWSBI Diamond 580-AL (M), TWSBI Eco (M)

Lamy Safari { Vista (M); Charcoal (M); Charcoal (1.1mm SI)},

Noodler's Ahab (Cardinal Darkness, Blue Poseidon Pearl, Clear Demo, King Philip Purple Demo)

Retro 51 Tornado EXT in Lincoln (copper) (M)

Inks: Noodler's: 54th Massachusetts, Apache Sunset, Red Black, BSiARIcelandic Minty Bathwater, Lexington Grey, Liberty's Elysium, Old Manhattan Blackest Black

GRIS NUAGE - Unable to use in a pen to write with - too too weak for my eyes. WONDERFUL though in a brush pen as shading on sketches.

 

http://www.taskyprianou.com/fpn_iroshizuku_fuyan_syogun_swatch.jpg

 

IROSHIZUKU FUYU-SYOGUN - Similar qualities to Gris Nuage only a tad cooler in colour. Again I only use this in a brush pen. Despite seeing some gorgeous written examples of it in here on FPN, I've yet to make it sing in any pen I've used it in.

 

http://www.taskyprianou.com/fpn_noodlers_lexington_grey_swatch.jpg

 

NOODLER'S LEXINGTON GREY - Was sent a sample in an ink exchange swap. Love it. Soon to buy a bottle. Seriously waterproof and a lovely neutral very dark grey (I'd call this a light black though). Watch out, slight turquoise halos appear in chromatics, when washed over or on when feathering occurs on cheapo paper. I found the written line to be a lovely dark shadeless grey.

 

http://www.taskyprianou.com/fpn_cda_infinite_grey_swatch.jpg

 

CARAN d'ACHE INFINITY GREY - Bought this on offer at less than half price. Beautifully behaved, shading neutral grey lines. Like Lexington Grey it has turquoise undertones when washed or forced to feather.

I know, I know, another blasted image of Stormy Gray (Gris Orage). But since it's the "It Girl" of 2014, here goes another view. Notice the stunning golden sheen on the letter O of "Orage" and the D of "Diamond"...

Great Stuff. I just added a gold / yellow thread too.

I wouldn't think so, but if you disagree, post away.
