Week #41 / 8 Oct: Ink And Match - 2017 Weekly Ink Project

Recommended Posts

This week, pick an ink that matches your favourite piece of clothing or accessory, or one of your favourite personal item. Thank you migo984 for the idea.

 

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.

Great colour, stunning pics and beautiful work Lgsoltek. :notworthy1:

 

I couldn't choose between 2 accessories and 2 inks. I know that one isn't a piece of clothing but it is a very important accessory in my life... :rolleyes: And yes, I have a thing for orange (and dark grey!)

Nice one LizEF. I’m with you on the white jeans... as well as grey (light and dark), indigo, washed, black and on and on.

:) Thanks, Newjelan, glad to know I'm not the only one hoping for eternal denim... :lol:

Now I see the theme was about matching clothing or another item. I would probably pick a nice mid brown to match my watch strap instead: were I to do it again.

 

Edit: I realise I forgot to say the ink: Diamine Twilight

Well you don't have to match only one ink and one item! Show us your other combos!

This slipped under my radar. I had a sketch ready and everything :o

Newjelan . . . THOSE SHOES ! Wowzer. Love them :wub:

Lgsoltek . . . perfect match of ink and clothing in theat first image. Perfect.

I went for black. Most of my winter clothes are black. Shoes, trousers, tops, hats. All black. The washing powder makes a lot of them fade a little hence R&K Leipziger Schwarz :mellow:

I liked Leipziger Schwarz. Its not exactly black, but has a bluish greenish tint like graphite, a nice one.

 

(And nice sketch of course!)

      @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.
