Kevin from Fountain Pen Revolution fixed my
red Himalayan with the Ultra Flex nib!**
Yay! I love this pen!
Above, showing the pencils that went into the sketch to give the color
when I finally applied ink with a wet brush.
I filled it with Papier Plume House of the Rising Sun ink from New Orleans.
A beautiful ink, well suited to this pen!
(Plus the bottles are so beautiful with their drippy waxed tops.)
Don’t fault the ink or pen for the skipping…
I was running out of ink and didn’t know it!
**So a small rant here…
People biatch about product, but I find MOST good companies will make
right bad product. Kevin from FPR is a case in point. I have several of his pens, and this one, even after heat setting, didn’t quite work right.
I sent it to him, and he fixed it. I usually only publish negativity about businesses
who are not interested in making something right.
