Happy New Year Joan! I thought your might like to know I ordered a new bottle of ink, J Herbin's Stormy Grey. It's dark gray with gold flecks in it. I am awaiting its arrival and can't wait to try it out.
Oh, that ink sounds fantastic, all Gothic and rich! Tell me how you like it.I hope you and Bookman have a happy, healthy, wonderful New Year, lots of great vegan food, lots of wonderful books.
The ink has turned out to be slightly disappointing but still great. The gray is dark and has nice shading. The sparkle from the gold is not as flashy as I had hoped but when the light hits the paper just right, the ink does sparkle which is fun but it is so subtle I'm not sure anyone would notice if they didn't know to look.
That's too bad about the ink. It sounded like such a good idea. I wondered if the gold flecks would clog the nib. By filling the same pen with different inks, I'm finding that there is a real difference in different brands of ink. There are just so many alluring colors!
Happy New Year back at you!
Happy, healthy New Year to you and those you love. Your blog posts are always brave and thought-provoking. It's helps to know there are fellow travellers out there!
I hope that 2015 will be a good one for you and J.
I wish the same for you and your J! Happiness, health, and heaps of books in 2015!
