Week #3 / 15 Jan: When Old Loves Rekindle - 2017 Weekly Ink Project


Recommended Posts

The third week is coming! For this week we are going to ignite some old flames: Use an ink you once loved but somehow ignored for a long time.

As usual, don't forget to share with us your choice of ink, your writing, drawing, doodling or anything with the ink in this thread. You can take a photo, make a scan, or even better, write letters and CRV reviews (what is a CRV?) and mail them to the many ink pals here. You are welcome to check back on this thread even when we've gone past this week.

For newcomers, click here to read more about this community project. Links to the two previous links can be found there too.


Week #4 we are doing the theme "Red Packets Please": Use a red ink (especially a festive one) to celebrate lunar new year.

:D :lol: :lticaptd:


It's a great bit of humor, Lgsoltek, very cool and I'm happy to take it as such ... but in all seriousness (and what kinda wacko gets all serious in this place? :rolleyes: ), we're all here on this earth to love people and use things, not the other way around.


I'll be by with HoD later on, when I have fewer pens inked up than I do now (and two of them with black!). If that happens to be next week, or even later, well, that'll be okay.

An old love - Diamine Asa Blue. The first bottled ink I bought that wasn't black, or blue-black. And a favourite for a long time. I just really haven't used it in the last 2 years or so.


I have inked 3 pens with it, and I shall see how I get on.

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

Create a Ghostly Avatar and I'll send you a letter. Check out some Ink comparisons: The Great PPS Comparison 

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

I have inks I use regularly - and even the less regular ones have been used at least once in the last month or so. And none of the ones I haven't used in a while are inks I would say I loved. I do have samples of inks I have never used, and samples I haven't used in months though. (Diamine Shimmer inks for example fit in both these catagories) I'll figure it out though.

So many rekindled romances in this thread! After a bit of a break, Diamine Misty Blue and I have rediscovered one another:

My rediscovered love is a bug: Sailor Kingdom Note Trypoxylus dichotomus, the Japanese Rhinoceros Beetle.

I actually found two - again...


Actually the Dumas doesn't look so bad in the scan - I am keeping the pen close by for notes on loose paper. And in the meantime will enjoy rediscovering magic cashmere and shocking blue, which are great on both white AND yellow paper...

Might I just add, what a brilliant topic.

I've not used MBMB for a long time. Partly nervous of it running out (no more though, who cares, enjoy it) and partly because a lot of my mixes and ink searches were really all about trying to replicate it.

But as Thomas Wolfe pointed out . . ."You Can't Go Home Again".

Shame on me :blush:.

I'll now be using this baby a lot lot more.
