More Ink Tests

I've been testing all my fountain pen inks on a variety of papers--you can see more results on my Flickr page, and on the discussion on Russ Stutler's Sketching Forum--last night was fun, I was having a three-way discussion in as many countries!  The 'net is an amazing place...

You can find some of the samples, mine and others', here: http://www.sketching.cc/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1353

And the discussion here: http://www.sketching.cc/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1159 that someone else started, testing different inks.

It appears paper and the sizing DOES make a big difference, but its not the whole answer...vickylw and I have tried the same inks on apparently the same paper (Strathmore 400 CP) with quite different results.  

Go figure.

Re: Ink tests

Isn't Russ and the forum (and his website) cool?? I wasn't able to log in for a long time, but that seems to be fixed, now.
