April: Coord-Ink-Ation - 2018 Monthly Ink Combo Project

Recommended Posts

We're doing some slightly different matching in April. In this month, match your ink colour to your pen. You are of course welcome to match more than one pen and more than one ink. Show us your pen(s) as well!

 

Have fun!

Thanks LizEF for this idea for April. Click here to read more about the 2018 project.

Here it is today...

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Create a Ghostly Avatar and I'll send you a letter. Check out some Ink comparisons: The Great PPS Comparison 

Don't know where to start?  Look at the Inky Topics O'day.  Then, see inks sorted by color: Blue Purple Brown Red Green Dark Green Orange Black Pinks Yellows Blue-Blacks Grey/Gray UVInks Turquoise/Teal MURKY

How interesting. :) I have several ideas already, because pairing pens with ink is something that happens regularly here. As an example my Pelikan M400 White Tortie is always filled with R&K Alt. goldgrün :wub: I will get some written exemplars and pics. :)

This made my heart skip a beat. What a beautiful collection! Quotes from Poe, Lovecraft, and Grimm are always fun!

Possibly a first in several installments... I love to find just the right pen color to complement the ink —or vice versa!

Clearly I should do a better job of thinking ahead when I recommend themes. They sound great, but (a) I don't really have equinox inks - and the ones I do have were used in February; ( b ) I kinda like demonstrators and white pens. :lol: I suppose I could use Blue Ghost if I have any left, or get a sample of Whiteness of the Whale, but I played that trick last year...

 

Still, I've got some blue pens and blue inks, so...

I currently have a few pens in use which have matching inks. Here is one of them. It's a Kaweco Perkeo, filled with Krishna Myrtle.

I'm saving this picture. Look at those edition, look at the colors, the pictures, the fonts. Gosh I love collectors editions. :wub:

Poor Yama Guri tried many pens until it found its home: Lamy Studio in Imperial Blue. Really smooth, the combination just screams classic.

I very rarely match pens and ink. I hate putting red ink in my red pen body. I dont ever usually have pink ink to go in the pink pen body. And until recently all the rest were clear or grey.

Yeah it kinda matches. And I like the combo. Im seriously thinking about using the same ink when it runs out! Heresy!

I'm with you. I generally hate "matchy-matchy". But there are some "same color" combos that work well: for some reason the M400 Brown Tortoise has always been filled with brown inks (even though I keep swearing that some day I'll stick Noodler's Navajo Turquoise in the pen instead).
