I more or less (ok, almost) completed the fill of Napa Burgundy. Since I hadn't tried the Diamine Merlot yet I put it in the 3776.....

Wow -- your Skrip Red is a lot brighter than mine. I didn't like it when I tried it, because it was more of a blood red to me.

Oh, hey, we were comparing Olivarste with PR Avacado Green. So, please save a page for CRVing.

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

Mix it with North African Violet for an amazing color. Midway is fade and water resistant.

That's no problem.

This topic is brilliant, I am learning so much and some of it relates to inks! 😏 One of the best things is that I realise that I'm not the only nerd around 👍🏻

 

I prepared my sample on Sunday but haven't gotten around to photographing it until now. I have learnt something about attempting to take photos inside my house. My house is virtually a glass box and consequently it's full of light. So this should make things easy. But from an architectural perspective (& due to summer heat), all our windows and doors are tinted. On top of that I'm a lousy photographer, I'm using my iPad, it's been too hot to take them outside and now it's pouring. This means that the colours in my pics have only a passing resemblance with reality.

 

For what it's worth, here it is:

Well, I finally had a chance this evening to get a bunch of scanning done (sadly, a lot of it was work done NOT with a fountain pen, but artwork inked with a Uniball M -- and touched up with a fair amount of white out... :blush:). But this is the important stuff for purposes of this thread:

fpn_1484291421__ink_of_the_week_2.jpg

fpn_1484291502__qotw_of_the_week_2.jpg

Both ended up being done on the Tomoe River paper, because it's just slightly slicker than the stuff from the Pelikan Hub, and the pen, a Parker 45, has what I think is either an OF or OM nib so it's got an even weirder small sweet spot than even a "normal" 45 nib. And it's a slightly dry writer, and the ink is also drier and a bit less lubricated than many De Atramentis inks so it just worked better on the TR paper. And of course I'm *still* trying to wrap my brain around the fact that when I first heard of the ink it was relabeled D'A Silvergrau... and isn't any more.... :(

This is such a wonderful idea! The threads would be great to follow even if I can't contribute (as will probably happen, considering my modest-ish supply of ink). Here's my humble contribution to this week's theme. Excuse the horribe photographs- there is a paucity of natural light in my room so I am making do with a bright desk lamp and my phone's camera.

I'd expect a grey ink from something called "anthracite". Blacks are kind of boring... to me...

Thank you, it is quite pretty :)

Giving credit to Mr Mehandiratta here. It was his review of Krishna Dark Rose that pushed me over the edge into ordering bottles of Krishna inks.

Ditto. I find it stunning even in a nib as fine as the Vintage capless I currently have it inked in :D

      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. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
