'nebula Mauve' Mix (Pinkish Purple)

Recommended Posts

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).

      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
