If you are a fountain pen user like me, chances are you are used to inky fingers and inky tissues. (From wiping off the nib after filling.) I'm always amazed at the designs the ink leaves on the tissues, so I decided to share a few.
This first one is J. Herbin's Lie de The. It's a brownish color and I'm fascinated by the orange halos...
Next is J. Herbin's Bouquet D'Antan. A light pink color, it looks pretty on the tissue - the color of Bazooka Bubble gum.
I always seem to have difficulties shooting anything purple. This is J. Herbin's Violette Pensee. It really is purple, though it looks more blue on my monitor.
Vert Reseda, also by J. Herbin. A bright teal color.
This is ink, I swear!!! Though it looks even more like blood in person. The color to the upper left of the tissue is Diamine's Pumpkin, a super vibrant orange, in the middle (bottom) is Diamine's Poppy Red - a gorgeous saturated red, and in the upper right, Diamine's Maroon.
Maybe I should make some sort of collage out of them.......hmmmmmmm.
