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).

Don't know where to start?  Look at the Inky Topics O'day.  Then, see inks sorted by color: Blue Purple Brown Red Green Dark Green Orange Black Pinks Yellows Blue-Blacks Grey/Gray UVInks Turquoise/Teal MURKY

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:

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...

Blue Velvet is my favourite from the Diamine anniversary inks.

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
