Inky Entries

I am playing with ll my grey inks this month… Some inks call themselves grey and are not (see above).  Greys seem to lean purple or blue or red…

Graphite and Grey Lux are lovely inks, though the strong smell of vanilla in KWZ is a bit much!

I went back to two Robert Oster favorites, Purple Jazz and Sydney Lavender.  Purple Jazz was in the first batch of RO inks I ever bought…

All the inks on the left are Robert Oster but the Pecan, which is a Papier Plume ink.  I removed Chicago from a pen and switched to Wind — Fell in love that blue!

Robert Oster Eucalyptus
(shown right), Chocolate, and Blue Water Ice, above left, all have taken residence in my Moonman pens.

I also filled and swapped some
inks in my TWSBIs.
I love these pens.
I hear that some think they are
not great but I have so many of them,
they all write when I reach for them
(though if it has been a
couple months I may have to
put a drop of water
in the nib to start the pen).

They are workhorses for me,
sketching and writing!

I bought three new Robert Oster inks…
I wanted them all but had to budget to buy my three favorites from the Cozy Comfort set from Endless Pens.  Gads they are gorgeous!  Now to clean a pen for them!
