Inktober 30, Two Cheap Platinums

I’m finishing a sketchbook from the Sketchpack Project this year…
As it was all about pen and inks, seems a good fit to finish Inktober!

Update from the time I wrote this about it leaking…
I had turned it into an eyedropper and it can’t be done.
So my bad.  I will rinse and fill an ink tube.

LOVE the De Atramentis Document Purple ink.
I’ve wanted this a long time and finally, it is here.
Lovely color, WATERPROOF (yaya!), though it doesn’t paint as easily
as some permanent inks… oh well.

The Preppie is a great workhorse — is it one of the best pens, and that has nothing to do with price.  Writes and writes and writes even if the ink is left in it forever.

I tried the Rohrer & Klingner Sketch inks, and was a little underwhelmed, but the blue (Marlene) is beautiful, bright, and so far, permanent.
I haven’t tested it on many papers but will buy a bottle for when I want a true blue.
I have the Super5 Atlantic for a great permanent “off” blue!
