After I flushed my pens this week, I decided to ink only four of my pens. And as a farewell to autumn I picked up some related colors.
My first inked pen is Sheaffer Imperial 440. It is one of the best seller pens in 80’s. So that it is still possible to find it. I inked it with J. Herbin Cacao du Bresil. I think this ink should have a name like “Chocolate Milk” or something.
My second pen is one of the reason that I started keeping this blog. I bough this pen, Ines de la Fressange from Paris and couldn’t find a single review about it, so I decided to do it myself. I inked it with a wine color bordeaux; Diamine Syrah.
I inked my orange Lamy Safari with one of the newest inks of Montblanc, Daniel DeFoe,. It is one of my favorite shade of greens. I liked it.
And lastly I have the most popular orange of fountain pen world (after Noodler’s Apache Sunset probably) Sailor Jentle Apricot in my italic Pilot 78G.
As every student vow him/herself at the beginning of the school year, I made a promise to myself that I won’t be over-inking and clean my pens in a daily basis. Yeah probably I won’t be doing this, still it is even great to dream about 🙂
What inks do you use while saying goodbye to autumn?
