Currently Inked

There's no real purpose to this blog post aside from a few pretty pictures. Pen p0rn, as we like to call it. I wanted to try this ink in this pen because it's supposed to have a red sheen so I thought the combination would be perfect. And it is.

This is a vintage Waterman 12 eyedropper + wet noodle nib, inked with Sailor Jentle Sky Blue.

I fill my eyedroppers using a Pipetteman. Keeps things clean.

1 ml of ink.

Yep, the pen holds the entire sample, with room for more!

Yummy, isn't it?

Shades nicely. Disregard that I wrote sky high. Clearly my brain malfunctioned.
Sailor Jentle Sky High Splotch
Oops. I made a splotch. Disregard the thanksgiving writing. It's sloppy and was just for getting my pen flowing.... last month.

That is one gorgeous pen! Love that flex <3
I only have my Ahab, and it had a little accident :( (I accidentally poured acetone on my desk, where my Ahab was, and it "ate" the pastic. It looks like poo now u_u)

It sure is :D Best flex I've got!


OH NO!!! That is so sad! Is it salvageable?? Good thing they're affordable hey? :/ Poor Ahab.

it's pretty much functional, but where the acetone touched the plastic it turned cloudy opaque (it was a clear demostrator) and it kinda "melt" the plastic. It works, but looks like hell :(

Oh no :( I know what you mean... Le sigh. Mine is clear too. Put baystate blue in it. Tried to clean it with alcohol before realizing alcohol makes it cloudy. It's soiled now. Whoops.

Estivalia said...

at least it's a cheapie :p gives me time to think of a color to get (clear demonstrator = lame choice IMHO hahaha)
