Week #42 / 15 Oct: Breast Cancer Awareness Month - 2017 Weekly Ink Project

Recommended Posts

October is breast cancer awareness month. In France they call it "octobre rose" (pink october). So this week let's pick a pink ink (alliteration and rhyming intended) . If you don't have a pink, maybe something red, magenta, purple?

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.

Yep, somehow #41 is the neglected child...

 

What a shame. People are missing out on an incredible pair of shoes.

 

Thank you white_lotus.

OK, here's my contribution for this week. I think it's a nice combination.

Wow. How did I miss that ink before now (I've loved most of the D'A inks I've tried except for the Document line). And normally I don't go all "matchy-matchy" with pen and ink colors but that worked well. And makes me want one of those M600s even more -- not that they're *remotely* affordable at this point....

I'm so far behind on this project. I really meant to do one for last week but I've got to find the ink that matches the garment really closely....

It's a repeat ink for me, but cleverly enough, it's another De Atramentis - we have a series going. :D The pen was a gift from a friend (I infected her, she tried out the Nemosine, but didn't like it, so she shipped it to me :) ).

I didn't know you liked these kinds of soft pinks, Ruth!

Guess I blew a fuse...

These are all my pinks, on Tomoe River paper. It's the 2nd colour I have the most of, the 1st being blue-greens/ teals.

The first one I bought was Iroshizuku Yama BUdo and the latest is Graf Von Faber Eectric pink - which i LOVE

 

Bonus for sheen lovers:

I have a pen inked with Yama Budo, which I unfortunately don't use very often. So the ink has been there for a while and it now writes a lot darker and with a lot more sheen than YB dipped fresh from the bottle - it doesn't even look like the same ink..

I'm constantly surprised by what it turns out I like and don't like. I do actually have and like some pinks -- although one I thought I *would* like, J Herbin Rose Tendresse, turned out to have just enough of a lavender undertone that it was somehow sort of grating on my senses. Which was weird because I like a lot of purples, and lavenders that are dark enough to be legible.

The two that freaked me out the most by liking? J Herbin 1670 Rouge Hematite (the original formula with the big flakes of gold) and Noodler's El Lawrence. And normally I can't stand blood reds, or pretty much *anything* "murky" that might have a green component to it....

But yeah, I like pink sometimes (the first pink ink I bought was fairly early on -- Noodler's Shah Rose.

      @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.
