Recommended Posts

This week, use the least saturated ink in your collection.

 

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: Arigato, Ishimaru

Totally with you on this. Unusable for me as a writing ink . . . but WONDERFUL to wash over sketched lines with :happyberet:

"meh"!? Blasphemy! ;) (I love that color, including its washed-out-ness.)

I no longer own Fuyu Syogun otherwise I'd have added it here.

I do like desaturated inks. I find them easier on my eyes B) but they must leave some kind of legible line behind from a fine nib.

For that reason, I really like Platinum's no nonsense Blue Black and will add a bottle to the drawer when my cartridges run out.

Er, nice blank page, @Tas. Did you draw those two little circles or are they holes punched into the paper? :unsure:

 

Drew the whole page, holes 'n'all.

 

A slight homage to Agnes Martin's "Rose" 1966 - I will never forget the look of utter disbelief on my entire family's faces when they stood in front of it in the Peggy Guggenheim Musem, Venice. :yikes:

:lol:

I had an art professor who painted a 3" white border around a spot on the concrete floor where there were a bunch of paint stains and smears. And then signed and dated it on the border.

For all I know, that's still there in the classroom/studio.... Although I can't guarantee about the signature, since I'm pretty sure he used a ballpoint pen.... :lticaptd:

"It's very nice, but frankly, when I signed that list for a P-51, what I had in mind was a fountain pen."

I really like stories like this. Good on them. :)

Edit: Ta daaa! :D Thanks Tas, you're the bestest. Here's hoping I remember and don't need to ask again...

I took photos of a performance of that piece at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance - proper bonkers. Loved it.

      @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.
