April Fool! Diamine Shimmertastic Moondust looks like pencil. The silver shimmer looks like graphite sheen. Fun!

Moon dust is one of my favorites. I would use it every single day if I could.

I don't have the spectacular inks to fool people - but here's another take on that...

I'm using an ink that's not really an ink...

Awesome choice! It looks so pretty!

Yes it's very nice, especially on white paper. And I saw the other day that they've put more colors now, so I'm going to take another look - maybe I can find other colors that speak to me...

Well, my ink decided to make me the April fool... I have these black artist trading cards, but the tips of my white, silver, and gold gel pens are too big for me to make good Zentangles on them, so I had the clever idea of mixing equal parts:

  • De Atramentis Document Yellow (only good for mixing anyway)
  • De Atramentis Document White (ditto)
  • Noodler's Blue Ghost

I figured it would be yellow in normal light, and glow in the dark... Well, not. The card is rather absorbent. The De Atramentis ink is transparent, so you can barely see anything in normal light. But you can see it under UV light, if there's not too much ambient light...

I struggled with this one, but if I had Noodler's Blue Ghost :drool: it would have been easy! I chose Emerald de Chivor in my oldest, wettest pen. The pen, & J. Herbin cartridges, started me on this journey of pens, inks and papers. Now I am so far gone, there's no way back.

That Blue Ghost ink looks fun! Late to the game for me, but I was on holiday in the Lake District with minimal wifi etc. etc. :)

Wow, that Ahab must be really wet - I had to try hard to get Apache Sunset to go that dark. :)

      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

      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
