Cam,

 

For an ink which does not fade or wash away - Noodler's KTC is Armageddon-proof. It will not fade, rub away or wash away once dry. While you are writing, you have until it dries to use a wet brush to wash away the mistake and blot it carefully. I think you should experiment on loose sheets to perfect the technique.

 

As for the book, I personally have a journal made of TR paper that GatzBCN made to my specifications. The journal is leather bound and is a work of art. I have taken it with me to pen shows to share it. I'll try and add the link.

 

Please be sure to share pictures of your work and tell us about your decisions.

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

A Jewish Torah is handwritten and lasts hundreds of years. It is made specifically to endure with the kind of frequent use you describe. Judaic practice is never to touch the printed words with your finger and a pointer (usually sterling) is always used. That all being said, this link provides additional details you may find helpful.. http://scrolls4all.org/scrolls/kosher-ink/

Have you heard of Journibles? They are nicely bound, but not leather and labeled by books of the Bible.

My husband and I each have one and are working on Matthew. The paper is very fountain pen friendly. We have chosen different versions to copy. I am using King James and he is using Revised Standard. I sometimes make mistakes when writing, but find a single line drawn through it is not as jarring as possibly destroying my paper.

 

I love Tomoe River paper and use it daily for letter writing.

 

What version of the Bible will you be copying?

Hello Cam and welcome to FPN.

To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

Welcome !

 

A permanent ink, that is easily removed, sounds contradictory. It forced me to stop making mistakes.

If you cannot follow my lead, I recommend learning some classic, Renaissance calligraphy. Artfully applied leaves, and vines, and icons, can be used to mask mistakes. (You didn't think that the

monk of the mountain abby actually wanted to do the extra work, did you ?)

Amber,

thank you for all of this content...your colors and Anna's journals are impressive.

Definitely considering a block - journal, or writing in signatures, and having Anna bind them when completed...

In either case, beautiful work!

Thank you

Cam

Sasha,

 

Exactly my thinking...I don't like the idea of striking through and leaving mistakes...but a little practice art where the mistake was, might go a long way ;-)

Truly interesting, and the recipe for the ink is quite straightforward...tempting, tempting, tempting....

Thank you for that, I find the Kosher approach quite appealing, and the information very interesting.

 

Thx,

R,

 

I plan on doing something a little odd (maybe?)...i'm a fan of the '84 NIV, but have alway desired the "Names of God" to be used, so I'm planning on utilizing my computer Bible software and drawing in the NoG in the OT, from the Hebrew.

 

Also, all of the text inclusions that only exist in later manuscripts will be removed...

 

So, all in all, an '84 NIV-ish Bible is the plan.

 

For format, I'm seeking A2 or B3 Tomoe River paper for use in Signatures with book dimensions of 14"h x 11"w, using 2 ¾" outer margins for notes, text in paragraph format (single column)...then eventually sewn binding to become my primary Bible of use.

Status of effort:

 

1. Special ordered Tomoe River A2 size. Big Sheets! 2,000. I might make a mitsake, so will need a couple extra sheets ;-)

 

2. Am building a drafting table with a special framed face for the pages. My other other hobby is woodworking.

I've been given a nice Black walnut tree, have cut it into boards, and have planed my boards into finished lumber. Now I only lack the construction of the table. Probably finished next week.

 

3. The drafting table will have a page frame for the A2 sheets, and 'opposing' dowels with string, stretched to mark out the margins for the pages.

 

Only a few more days to begin the actual writing...very excited to start...

Hello, Cam, and welcome to the Fountain Pen Network. Glad you have joined us. You, having joined us, make us better. This is now your place as much as it is ours. Please don't be shy. Ask all the questions you have and don't hesitate to state your opinions. I hope you enjoy your time here.



Good luck with your project. I would make only two suggestions. 1. Use Noodler's Old Manhattan Black Ink. 2. Write for short periods of time, taking lots of breaks, and avoiding becoming tired. Maybe writing only for a few minutes each day and avoid writing on days when you feel stressed.



-David (Estie).

Thank you David! I just hope I can return the value offered to me in my projects ;-)

Noodlers black or Mass 54.

I really enjoy the Mass54. I also have a couple of other noodler inks. Great stuff!

      @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

      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.
