But I am not over with inks!
I was waylaid by two things: work, and a project that I
want to finish and knowing
how things go I thought
I best get going early.
Today I am writing about Troublemaker inks.
Previously I owned Sea Glass, and loved the ink. Many of
their inks are oceanic names;
I wanted to own a few that remind me of home,
Laguna Beach California.
Marilyn managed to three bottles of ink for me when
I could not get any; a precious gift, because they sell out
in seconds! I placed the one called Abalone in the beautiful “peacock” colored Fountain Pen Revolution Himalayan pen, right.
CLEARLY I MISMARKED
MY OTHER PEN.
I had two pens in Abalone!!!! Ignore what I wrote below!
Above, comparisons between Sea Glass and Abalone, the top swatches,
ARE ALL WRONG!!! EDIT EDIT —
I MISLABELED THEM AND THEY ARE BOTH ABALONE!!!!
The other inks I added to make the sketch was a few lines of
Pelikan Black and Papier Plume Pecan ink for the shell, and Birmingham Electron,
as my abalone has a lot of a brighter clear blue, and black.
I’ve had this lovely abalone since I was a teenager,
I found it on the beach below my home.
