    Ah, I expected Bosphore to be somewhat blue - and now I am intrigued because it is planned for a large-ish order from L'Artisan Pastellier later this year.
    It was one that surprised me too. I'm still not convinced you need both Bosphore and Baikal, but I have and use both, and there are subtle differences that make them both very usable - with Baikal definitely the bluer of the two.

    You should come and play on this thread - I think you'd enjoy it!

    This must be a sprit after our last few marathons
    Difficult ink to capture:

    Hope my little sketch is as confusing as this

    Sprint? I didn't even hear the starting gun

    Well done Yazeh and mizgeorge.

    I remember listening to CBC radio about 25 years ago. Arthur Black had a program (Basic Black) and he interviewed someone who was worthy of being interviewed for some forgotten reason. But what stuck with me was that the interviewee had two cats: Pushkin and Pincushion.

    I love Pincushion as a cat name! My Pushkin (or Prince Alexander Pushkin as he was rightfully known) came to us when I was about twelve. We think he'd been dumped from a car as he was, for the whole of his life, terrified of being in them - I learned to wrap a cat in a towel very quickly when we needed to take him to the vet!

    He was a sweet, loving little ginger boy and like all my cats, I still miss him.

    Back in a while with something easier - I'm just looking for the pen it's in!

    I'm going to carry on the green cat theme

    inkguess28b.jpg

    This one should be pretty straightforward, I just wanted to play with this particular pen, and this was what was in it!

    (the photo is probably slightly closer to 'true' than the scan, but it's not an easy one to capture)
