Recommended Posts

Winter is coming! Kill winter with an orange ink. (If it's summer where you live, kill the heat with aqua/turquoise/blue/mint!

 

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.

Next week: Thanks for the Memory
=================================
We are near the end of the year guys! Thank you for joining! What do you think about this year's weekly ink projects? Are they fun to do? Maybe once per week is too frequent? Do you still want to do something like this next year? Personally I think it's fun to pick an ink every week and see what the others come up with, but maybe it's a bit too frequent. I'm thinking about something like a monthly ink combos next year, something like matching two inks every month, with themes like "complementary colours month", "doppelgängers month", etc. What do you think?

Hi Jinhui: For next year, I like the idea of color combinations or complements —maybe based on a theme. That would be fun!

 

Here's my contribution this week. Sorry for the blurry photo —didn't realize it until after I uploaded it.

As you may imagine, I have a lot of these Fall/Halloween colors on hand... ;)

Ahh, Mr Orange . . . :)

 

 

 

I was going to say that! This week is tailor made for Herbert!

I agree completely with you. I don't know who invents the names for inks at Monteverde, but they really messed up with this one: this ink has absolutely nothing in common with a fire opal. Actually, the first time I saw it up close, it looked almost exactly like the color of well cooked "Pumpkin Pie," so I just call it that now.

 

And yes, it is a bit dry. A little PhotoFlo, and it works very nicely.

Just googled what pumpkin pie is. That's the colour!

 

I guess I was misled by their purported "flow enhancing" IFF or ITF or something technology...

My latest purchase. Not going to be my favourite orange though.

 

 

 

(with swabs comparing to other oranges)

 

 

 

This looks kinda like Diamine Ancient Copper, at least on my screen. Would you say this is so?

 

I like your idea of monthly ink pairing---I'm sure this will enhance my journal!

Well it's Summer here and yesterday was 35C so I am wanting to cool down. When I prepared this sample it was between 2 heatwaves. Today (Thursday) we are having another brief respite from the heat. I hate Summer. :bawl:

Thanks for your idea Lgosltek.

 

While I found the weekly ink posts great and they encouraged me to explore more inks, I think the weekly theme can be challenging. I like the idea of ink pairing themes and think weekly pairings will be difficult, so monthly is a good idea.

Swab #0 on the right hand edge is Diamine Ancient Copper, and I also find it a little more 'brick' :)

I love orange inks and I don't know which one to choose. I currently have one of my own mixes loaded in my Pilot Custom 74. Is that allowed?

 

Of course! Just tell us how you made it (assuming you know :lol: ).

      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

      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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
