Week #11 / 12 Mar: Bling-Bling Week - 2017 Weekly Ink Project

Recommended Posts

We are having a bling bling week! J. Herbin brought us a new type of ink with Rouge Hématite, but I think it's actually Gris Orage that set the trend of shimmering particles. Since then Diamine and De Atramentis have jumped on the bandwagon as well.

 

Actually I had this week planned with particle inks already, and mehandiratta told us it coincides with Holi Festival in India! So, ink up!

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: We are going to celebrate the arrival of spring/autumn.

Diamine Shimmer Lilac Satin is my choice for this week's Bling-Fest. It's pretty subtle compared to some of the other Diamine sparkly ones, and a really lovely pretty lilac purple colour. Technically, it is my daughter's first ink, as she specifically requested it (she is 5 years old).

The sparkles are indeed quite subtle in this ink! Gorgeous photos!

I didn't remember it being this good. But it has been a while.

Stunning work . . . reminds me of Odilon Redon's dark and gloomy stuff.

 

There are no "bling-bling" inks in my drawer of shame so I'll respectfully bow out of this week's shiny shenanigans :)

I think it was the pen more than the ink causing skipping and poor flow. In a broad nib FC Ambition, it performed much better. Still spread terribly on cheaper paper.

Loving the Bling bling theme! I wrote with J. Herbin's 1670 Émeraude de Chivor all week... sorry for posting late though. Also, I know it may not be the most original choice but it's my favorite ink!!! 😊

      @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.
