Now I’m super curious where they’re going to go next.
Opening today’s door….
Day 17’s ink is called “Flame.”
I tested, as per usual, using a borosilicate glass dip pen in a Maruman Mnemosyne notebook.
This is totally a watercolor ink. Sheer and see-through in the bottle.
Flame is a bright watercolor orange. It’s both dry and scratchy, making for thin lines, but it’s also watery so there’s a lot of flexibility in terms of how one can use it. Also, while it writes dry, it takes forever to actually dry on the paper. I was able to tilt and tap just once to get that “leg” in the photos.
In the handwriting, I can’t see much variance, but in the splotch I can see where it’s going to be FUN to paint with.
I had to scribble to get the splotch, but I can’t see the lines that well. I’m not sure how much of that is due to how watery it is and how much is due to how sheer the colors are.
And the way the colors layer and outline as they dry? That’s special! Normally inks that create outlines aren’t so easily layerable like this.
This is going to be my “love letter to my spouse” color. (Don’t tell him.)
Next up: Day 18!
