Scriptus Ink 2017 – Picture Review!!

 

 

For anyone who doesn’t know what Scriptus is.. Scriptus is the name of the Toronto’s Pen Show and Writing Show. Every year (since 2015) Scriptus has release a Show ink which becomes one of the highlights of the Show. The Scriptus show ink is done in collaboration with KWZ.

 

For Scriptus 2017, we have “150 Confederation Brown”, to celebrate the 150 years of Canada becoming a Confederation (proclaimed on July 1, 1867)

 

Since I am totally biased… I will just let the pictures do the talking. :D :D

 

 

 

LABEL: Sketch of the "Peace Tower", a Canadian Landmark. Is the focal clock Tower standing at the centre of the Canadian Parliament Building.

150 Confederation Brown, is an olive-brown that is extremely paper dependent. It seems to react to the different chemistry of every paper. On coated paper it looks more green, on more absorbent paper, more brown. On cardstock it shows almost black brown.

 

 

 

Below is 100% cotton paper...

Tester Pens: Three of my favorites EDC were used. In order (top to bottom), My extremely wet Sheaffer Legacy II with a stubbish Broad, my equally wet MB 149 with a luscious OBB and a lovely mid-wet Bexley (cant remember model). Ink was taken from the same bottle.

As with previous years (Maple Red 2015 and Northern Twilight 2016) the creative process is heavily manipulated by me. ;) The decision is all Scriptus, if the Scriptus lords want me to start from scratch, I will oblige. :lol: The artistry in manufacturing is all KWZ, so you know you will get a great performing ink with lush colour and saturation. The creative label is original artwork from Alannah (instagram @iamjoopiter) and this year we had the honour to get Salman Khattak (our own FPN Calligraphy expert, goes by SMK) to do the fabulous writing. :wub: :wub:

Is it a young Cruella de Vil, a couple of weeks after the terrible split with her boyfriend who treated her appallingly and triggered the rage within her . . . ?

You are very welcome!!!... :D :D

 

The Pen is the Serendipity Hybrid Pen. Is technically a dip pen holder with a HUGE ebonite feed and a number 6 nib. You can write/sketch pages before having to re-dip.

Any chance/way for non-Canadians and non-attendees to get this ink?

 

Assuming it's like last year — no chance in Hell. Unless you want to travel to Toronto for the show, get there when it opens, and buy a bottle before it sells out in the first 40 minutes.

 

Cyber6 really has a way of making us all want an ink that we probably won't be able to get. Oh, well, that's life.

There must be a way, no? Considering that people who don't attend pen show in Japan have the exclusive ink bottle in a week after the opening day.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
