I tried an experiment and it turned out very well. I love the color of Noodler's Habanero and Oster Ng Special, but they can be difficult inks. But together? :D Well-behaved shade monster!

LOVELY!!!! Your mix reminds me of one of my favorites, Kin-mokusei.

All of the posts in this thread are fabulous. That KWZ Pink-brown is a must have. Gorgeous!

Your comment got me to wondering how Kin-mokusei and Spicy Special stack up. Here's the visual:

K-m is brilliant, with that wonderful silver sheen, and SS is more like a hot pepper, or autumn leaves?

That's a great mix HJB. I like mixing yellow/orange inks together too. :)

Love the mix and SBRE Brown (...and always Kin-mokusei)!
Is Dr. Brown's available anywhere right now? I'd love to get my hands on some. Errrr, my pens on some.

OOOH. Earl Grey looks quite nice!

Ruth Morrisson aka inkstainedruth

I think I have only seen Earl Grey a couple of times live. And it seems intriguing to me. Grey (gray?) inks otherwise haven't really appealed to me. But this one, I think I will get a sample of.

Nice sharers, Runnin Ute!

Thanks, Liz! I don't have it in a pen right now, but you should see my vintage Sheaffer Skrip Emerald Green! Diamine Saddle Brown is a nice shader too.

Thank you very much for this tip, Nohivo!

I just checked their site, and they are currently out of stock. Maybe they will get more???

It's a beautiful brown, imho.

Some of my favourite shading inks, on Elias 90gsm paper (from Everything Calligraphy)

Beautiful! I like Elias paper, though I sometimes find it a bit too 'powdery'. Also, it makes inks with 'chameleon' characteristics look especially different (such as Diamine Salamander, Sailor Jentle Rikyu-Cha, etc).

Love the comparison! Spicy Special looks more earthy and organic.

I recently reviewed SBRE Brown ink, and believe it's currently available from Akkerman's. I presume that's where Vaness buys it from.

 

If you can't get it please PM me.

Thank you - I have lots of shading inks but I find that particular combination of four especially pleasing.

 

Yes, I agree about Elias paper. It does have an idiosyncratic character, but I enjoy that as I like to have variety in my FP-friendly papers. Colorverse Vortex Motion ink is amazing on it - its chameleon nature is really emphasised.

I must have been asleep at the wheel —I missed the discussion of "chameleon" characteristics of inks. Do I presume correctly that they are inks that change color depending on paper and/or pen?

 

I wonder if I have any of these in my collection... :unsure:

      @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.
