Saturation week: use the most saturated ink you have.

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.

This may or may not be my most saturated ink, but it's certainly one of them, and one I haven't used yet. :)

I discovered after making and uploading the above that this ink prefers Clairefontaine paper, where it shows more blue than on the Rhodia I usually use (and used above).

I was going to go with my favorite super saturated ink, Rouge Hématite, but I think I've used it earlier. So I'll go with his sister, Émeraude / Esmeralda / Emerald of Chivor. I have filtered out most of the sparkles since the ink alone is what I love most:

And naturally, we have to have a glamour shot of the sheen...

So if 10 ml is 300% would 20 ml be 150% of normal?

I was going to fill a pen with Organics Studio Henry David Thoreau Walden Pond, but instead I chose Diamine Sargasso Sea: :) If nothing else it's a shorter name. :D

Cornflower is a wonderful ink! To me, it looks more rich and elegant than BSB (the latter being more vivid and bright). Nice choice!

Blatantly copied from a gorgeous piece of art by Joseph Kosuth (1945). 276 (On Color Blue), 1993

The words and original artwork spoke a lot about saturation to me.

"276. But don’t we at least mean something quite definite when we look at a colour and name our colour-impression? It is as if we detached the colour-impression from the object, like a membrane.
(This ought to arouse our suspicions)"

I love Cornflower too. I bought a TWSBI ink bottle specially to put mine into. :wub:

      @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.
