Colouring Is Not Just For Kids!

Has anyone heard of or tried using fountain pen ink in Johanna Basford's 'grown up' colouring books (Secret Garden and Enchanted Forest)? The pictures look so whimsical and fun, and with all of the colour options that we have with fountain pen ink, it would be a blast to colour them in using a fountain pen and ink.

 

 

If you haven't seen it already, check it out! I looks pretty neat:

Her drawings are nice but the paper used in the books is not good at all. It's very porous and even worse, a quite dark cream colour. Fibre tip pens and even gel pens can bleed through, so I use coloured pencils. I prefer them anyway as I blend colours.

I'm away from home & I don't have mine here with me so I can't try it with FP inks for you

 

Much better paper is used for the books by Millie Marotta. It's thick, smooth and bright white. And I actually prefer her designs to the Basford ones. I've got one of her books here so I'll try it with a FP later & report back :-)
