missthundercat Using fountain pens to enjoy work related studies 101: use a lamy old yellow color with a 1.9 nib and De Atramentis yellow Gold ink to highlight passages. And yes color coding pen and ink enhances the enjoyment :) 2d
  •   gnoe That would certainly help me too! 2d
  •   subgirl Ooooh next step is the Noodler's catfish in the neon one? :) I love the highlighter inks, but this is a nice contrast to the print. And the ink is such a nice match to the pen! 2d
  •   missthundercat @gnoe maakt studeren zoveel leuker ;) 2d
  •   missthundercat @subgirl thanks Kelly! And that is a good one, but for highlighting i prefer yellow/green/blue. I have this ink color from last year august inkdrop. Glad to find a good use for it finally :) 2d
  •   subgirl I was thinking Noodler's Firefly (there's a catfish on the bottle but there's several different names for the series upon searching.) which is a highlighter/UV colour to match the neon yellow Lamy. But it is bright! My first Ink Drop (3 years ago!!) was the set of UV inks (the theme was Flashlight Tag). I actually just ran across the ID with this yellow in it. Will try to remember it when I get a standard yellow Safari for my rainbow. :) 2d
  •   missthundercat @subgirl thanks for clarifying! For some reason i thought you meant it was a pink color because of the Neon reference. I only own the neon coral but the neon yellow is just tooo bright for me so I never got it. Wow 3 years of inkdrop! How many have you used up? I have trouble deciding what to do when I run out of storage place. I only have space left for this year in my containers. So i am trying my best to use some up in the mean time ;) 2d
  •   subgirl Ummm I think I've used up ... two or three maybe? *total hoarder* I really prefer to have access to like, unlimited (did the numbers and it's 180 vials, not counting the extras I've ordered!) colours versus the large quantity of a bottle (tho I do enjoy a few full bottles) and I... just can't bear to cancel the sub. Right now I am kinda working on getting them all into the same place. They're scattered alllll over the house and are in project boxes (by IRIS) and in some storage boxes and I have a single rack and an IKEA box... it's stupid. But I have the room sorta so they'll keep piling up. Hopefully my SO is going make me a laser cut wooden stand/holder for (some of) them! 2d
  •   missthundercat Wow @subgirl 180 vials!! I do hear you on the variety vs full bottles. But tend to buy a full bottle when I really like the ink and have a drawer full of inkbottles. For the vials i have 2 trays and a recycled tic-tac-toe board game for a tray. Don't want to expand the space they take up so I have used a bunch of the vials already so I don't hoard too much. I hoard enough things already, lol! 2d

missthundercat Glad to have an original Black Swan in Australian Roses in my posession. If people are looking for a substitute for the original color, Private Reserve Arabian Rose comes close but has less shading... #fpgeeks #inkyproblems #blackswan #australianrose #burgundy #noodlers #gouletpens #fountainpen 6d
  •   subgirl Argh I'm grumpy about this change. Thank you for the sub. I wonder if mixing can make it less purple. :/ 6d
  •   missthundercat @subgirl i'm thinking mixing a bit of PR arabian rose with noodlers black see how thag turns out.. 9h

  •   pyro_mail No I didn't. I was waiting on you thinking you were busy. 1w
  •   peridotbyul @pyro_mail I agree.where did you get this shirt @missthundercat ? 6d
  •   missthundercat @peridotbyul it'a a limited edition Qwertee Tshirt, this was available for only a short period of time. They have new releases daily. But sometimes they have some up for a week. Are you into doctor who/sherlock? It's a uk based site so they do have a lot of variations on these shows for themed tshirts. Www.qwertee.com 6d
  •   missthundercat @peridotbyul i just checked and sadly they do not have this one to vote to bring it back http://www.qwertee.com/tees/previous/all :( but they do have the van gogh sherlock one to vote to bring back. 6d
