Possibly...you see I'm more of a non-fiction reader...

To be clear, I'm not suggesting dishonesty. Rather, there are tools and outlets one can use to express themselves - options, if you would - because some people are reserved. I am one of them. But when I need to express, there are many roads that lead to Rome Paris.:wink_face:

Ok, I'm interested! :bigsmile_face: I'd like to know how to do this...currently I don't have any experience I'm afraid.

Currently entering the home stretch of an overnight listening session. Then bed just before sunrise. Perhaps, when I awake I can extend a PM... lovin' my new system!

Overnight? I've never done those since university...work and all.

G'Night!

That's one of the Iroshizukus that I haven't seen in person, which is odd as my collection is largely comprised of purples. Hard to tell on-screen, but if it's more of a Noodler's Socrates, I'm on board… If it's starting to lean toward La Reine Mauve, not so much. May have to grab a sample next time I'm ordering from Goulet…

Not traditional Purple, it has a bit of Blue mixed in. The ink gets its looks from the Japanese Beautyberry plant. My favorite Iroshozuku selection!

Yeah, I've seen the swatches on-screen before, I've just learned not to trust them with certain shades… But Iroshizuku has never let me down, and as much as I don't need another purple in my stash… Well, I kind of do, right? ;)

 

(Purples and purplishes that are within my eyesight include NOS Skrip Burgundy, Herbin Poussière de Lune, R&K Scabiosa, R&K Alt-Bordeaux, Noodler's BSiAR, Noodler's Socrates, Noodler's La Reine Mauve, Iroshizuku Yama-Budo… what's one more, eh?)

The Pelikan 4001 Violet isn't bad, its on the reddish side. It doesn't shade too much (4001 inks tend to be dry).

 

But I have to agree. The Murasaki Shikibu is a nice color.

 

Diamine has a few purples, I haven't tried them though.

I may need to step outside my comfort zone. But Lady Murasaki Shikibu has me mesmerized...

Apparently Diamine is one of the safer brands.

Little accident when trying to get the feed out of my Century II. Bah. Probably should've soaked it in a 5% ammonia solution overnight first.

post #2219 of 2766

Broken feed?

:eek:

 

I've been very fortunate to date. Though, it's just a matter of time before my first mishap, knock on wood Iroshizuku bottled ink.
