Recommended Posts

Happy Valentine's Day! Choose an ink you’ll use to write love letters.

 

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.

Click here to read more about this community project. Links to the two previous links can be found there too.

Next week is gonna be Iron-gall Week.

Well, LG, I have read this and written the love letters.

 

I used

  1. Diamine Red Lustre
  2. DiaminePoppy Red
  3. Private Reserve Sherwood Green
  4. De Atramentis Karmesin
  5. De Atramentis Brilliant Violet with Bronze
  6. Monteverde Canyon Rust
  7. Montblanc Royal Blue
  8. Super 5 (Rohrer & Klingner) Dublin

Pictures will follow.

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

My romantic spirit has taken a bit of a beating this last year, so no love letters from me. This is my slightly flippant entry. My love of ink endures.

Amber, you know me well! I love the fact that you chose a vibrant red to write to me.

 

For me as well, as long as I love a colour, i can use it to write love letter. One of my recent purchases is a very pretty luscious colour. I post something with it soon.

Dear Liz, I'm sorry you're feeling the blues, but glad you are feeling inky.

 

LG, I loved toucan for mixing but found it too dry and undersaturated in my initial tests. You, as always, make it look amazing.

 

KWZI Berry is yummy.

The love letter mentioned above was written on two pages of 20lb 92 brightness legal sized paper that we purchased for I remember not what reason, and for which I have nigh unto no use. I wrote another love letter to my wife on this same laid paper for St. Valentine's day, with the latest purple mix, in the same Prera with CM nib. While the edges of the lines were textured, there was nigh unto no feathering.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      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.
