'nebula Mauve' Mix (Pinkish Purple)

While preparing my entry for the March ink combo topic – which I haven’t posted nor even finished yet - I had the strange urge to mix 2 of the inks I wanted to submit; Iroshizuku Kosumosu and Monteverde Amethyst. The final mix is a 3-4 to 1 ratio.

It’s a slightly faded but legible pinkish purple in a fine nib but gets more spectacular from a broader, wet nib or a brush. It gives the feeling that there is some underlying neon pink glowing behind the purple 'layer'.

The mix has a very - extremely- faint sheen, which seems to combine both original inks’ sheens (both light sheeners; golden for Kosumosu, green for Amethyst)

(This very little thing is what shows on Tomoe River paper. So there is probably nothing to see on any other papers.)

 

I made the first mix some 2 weeks ago; it didn’t show any sign of problem in a glass bottle, so I made more of it last weekend, and inked a couple of pens with it. So far all is fine.

 

I find the colour lovely, complex, hypnotic and relaxing to write with, so I’m most happy with the experiment.

Very pretty. Thank you.

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