Experimenting with how fountain pen ink and a waterbrush works in my new Stillman & Birn Beta series sketchbook.

Platinum Carbon Black Ink Sample

Showing some love for this Platinum Carbon Black ink sample. The irony of the quote’s message and my overdone lettering is not lost on me hahaha. Also, this clearly illustrates why I prefer a subtle grid to dots – I can’t write in a straight line to save my life. I also have problems eyeballing if things are level when hanging stuff, so…. Yep. Yay grids. 😀

This Week’s Inks

Annnnnd …. this week’s inks are exactly the same as last weeks. Because I liked this combo too much this week to change it over the weekend. And, let’s be honest, the thought of cleaning pens wasn’t at all appealing.

This Week’s Inked Pens

I end the week with slightly different pens and inks from when I started on Monday – the ink all up in my Kakuno feed just annoyed me too much, and if I was gonna flush that… Well, in for a penny, in for a pound haha. The inks: Pilot Metropolitan = Iroshizuku Yama-Budo. Pilot Kakuno = Diamine Graphite. Lamy Apple Green = Iroshizuku Kon-Peki. Lamy Lime = Iroshizuku Tsutsuji. Lamy Neon Coral = Platinum Carbon Black.

The inks in each pen. It’s a good thing the ink samples take me awhile to go through, cause I’d have to buy all 3 of the Iroshizuku inks otherwise!
