As always: Victorian dip pen in a Rhodia notebook. The pictured pens are the new Noodlers that I just received! De Atramentis Oriental Red Noodler’s Green Diamine Matador De Atramentis Fir (Scented) Rohrer & Klingner Verdura I must have been really tired when I tried these colours. I forgot to write ‘Fir’ and spelled [...]
As I begin to write this, it’s 23:47 on 30 November. Thirteen minutes left of the annual month of insanity that is NaNoWriMo. Coming at the tail end of a year seemingly devoid of all creativity, I was not looking forward to the challenge this year. I thought and thought and thought about what to write. [...]
Finally caught up! This month, the Ink Drop focused on a new ink company (Scribal Work Shop) and their “Cryptid” line of inks. I have to say, I can often get ‘sold’ on an ink based on the name or the story behind the name/colour. I get caught up on that and hope and pray [...]
This is September’s Ink Drop – Goulet Staff Picks. I have to say, I wasn’t a fan of any of these inks. I’ve been using the El Lawrence for a bit now, actually – inked up my preppy with it. While the sample above wrote nicely, I don’t like it in the pen (which annoys [...]
I’ve continued getting my Ink Samples each month, but they stayed sitting on my desk until now. I have to say that although this page looks a bit boring, I was quite pleased with several of these inks. As usual, the inks were sampled with my Victorian dip pen in my Rhodia notebook. Noodler’s Kiowa Pecan Diamine [...]
This month’s Goulet Ink Drop theme was ‘Summer Picnic’ and was based on foods and fruit that one might enjoy on a picnic. Diamine Wild Strawberry Private Reserve Avacado De Atramentis Plum (Scented) De Atramentis Cucumber (Scented) Sailor Jentle Apricot As usual, the inks were sampled with my Victorian dip pen in my Rhodia notebook. I didn’t [...]
A drabble I wrote yesterday using the ink samples that also arrived yesterday! The inks in the order used: De Atramentis Elderberries De Atramentis Hyacinth De Atramentis Rose Diamine Meadow Pilot Iroshizuku Murasaki-shikibu (Japanese Beautyberry) I think the Elderberries is my favourite, but all the De Atramentis are scented and I’m not really all that interested in [...]
Pretty blues! I liked them all, though the Waterman is probably my least favourite. I may add the Diamine to my wish list. This month’s colours are: Waterman Mysterious Blue Noodler’s Turquoise Eel Diamine Aqua Lagoon Noodler’s Ottoman Azure Noodler’s Blue Eel (it’s not really that smudgy, I just ran my arm across it as [...]
My March Ink Drop sampler arrived today from The Goulet Pen Company! This month was an interesting theme: Spring Cleaning. They looked at their 30 worst selling inks and took the top 5 colours to include in this month’s package of inky goodness! Some of these, I’m not sure why they aren’t more popular. They [...]
Yesterday I posted a photo of some yummy (well, I’m guessing they’re yummy. I haven’t actually eaten them) candy that arrived in my monthly set of ink samples from The Goulet Pen Company. When I posted the link to Twitter, someone suggested I share what ELSE was in the package. So… here you go! I [...]
