Recommended Posts

This week, use an ink that has a special meaning to you.

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.

Thanks! I love the shading! My memory thought it was a little darker and had some green in it, but when I added some text to the old swatch card, the color was the same, so my memory must not know what it's thinking... ;)

That's a good one Liz. :thumbup:

 

This topic will take some thinking about for me. :huh:

 

 

Agreed. Steel Blue is wonderful.

 

Like Chrissy, I am not sure what ink will fit this category. Perhaps special gifts from generous benefactors...?

Tough one for me too! I thought about the first ink i've bought (but there's week #49), the first ink I love so much that i've bought more than one bottle of, the first ink of my favourite brand, an ink gifted to me, the first ink I've reviewed... Difficult choice, even more so when most of these inks are in my other stash in another country!

Well to paraphrase you back: feel free to pick more than one ;)

 

I had my entry all lined up, but now I can't find it :headsmack:

My one and only (well,.. I wish it were...), Robert Oster's Fire & Ice:

(sorry about the odd page hue shift, I had the worst time trying to present the ink accurately, and ultimately failed. In person it is an almost fluorescent blue-turquoise. The photos in Chrome browser make it look washed out, comparing to how it is in person, photo viewed in Microsoft Edge is super vibrant and is closer to reality).

Dunno about a translation, although I could possibly manage Church Latin with lots of Googling...

However, here's a transcription --

 

There are some on this board who
might recognise my inky partnership
with Parker Penman Sapphire and
its clones.
This is one of those clones - Faux Penman
Sapphire #9.
A simple blend of two Diamine inks,
and an equal amount of water
make this quite a safe and well-
behaved ink. And quite cheap per
ml. of ink.
This was written with a Perry
Iridinoid #26 dip pen on Whitelines
paper.

clones <-- struggled with that one for a ridiculous amount of time. All I could come up with was "cloves" and that made no sense at all. :lol:

ml of

Iridinoid (wasn't sure on this one as I'd never heard of it)

 

Perfectly obvious now, thank you!

 

"Translation" was just a little joke on my part.

A clove of ink. Hmm.

 

However, Perry made a range of dip pen nibs, as well as some fountain pens. The Iridinoid range were made of a shiny stainless steel, unlike, say, the Brandauer Scribbler and some DP Leonardt nibs which were a different blend of stainless steel, and quite dull. The Iridinoid nibs all had a large reservoir under the nib, and could write for a fair time on one dip. They came in a range of tip sizes and designs, such as the folded fountain pen style tip of the 105, slender, almost flexible bowl tip of the 26, and some nice stub nibs.

Interesting thread!

The scan looks brighter than in real life.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
