    Default Mystery Ink #28

    Hi again, FP Geeks and ink aficionados, welcome to Mystery Ink #28, a continuation of the magical, monumental, marvellous Mystery Ink series where volunteers receive an unlabeled, unknown ink sample and share an unbiased review.

    As always, Mystery Ink participation is open to FPG veterans, newbies, and lurkers. It's a super fun way to try a new ink you might not pick on your own.

    I will randomly select from the pool of volunteers and send free ink. Then you write and/or draw with it and share your reviews, thoughts, opinions, and observations.

    We don't care how good or bad your handwriting or drawing is. All we're after is a good, unbiased review of the ink. See prior threads to get an idea.

    Guessing is welcome, but not required. There's no prize for a correct guess beyond deep, eternal, personal satisfaction.

    The ink this time around is dye-based, no shimmer, and not iron gall.

    So, who else would like to participate in this next Mystery Ink review?

    If you are international please let me know.

    Hi Azkid,

    I just want to let you know that there is no MI#28 left (remember the transport problem with the leakage).
    The few remaining drops evaporated since then.
    I donít want you to think that I will not participate on purpose.

    Iím looking forward to see the inputs from the others.

    Thanks again for hosting the game for many iterations now.

    I'm in again if I'm not taking someone's spot that's new. I love doing these mystery inks.

    I think #28 is the one that was going to be replaced entirely with something else, right? So none of us has the new #28 at present.

    I would love to continue with the next ones!

    I've enjoyed experiencing the new inks. I'm in, if I'm not taking someone else's spot.
    I use a fountain pen and a paper planner - paperinkplan.wordpress.com

    I believe that I have a sample of MI#28.
    I have a tiny spot of the previous old #28, that leaked during delivery, plus a sample of a different #28 that I received recently with some others while I was in the US. As I might already have the ink then I'm very happy to take part and write with it.

    Haven't been on in a while. If you're still taking samplers, I'd love a spot if one is available! Thanks for all your hard work!

    As usual I've failed to get the inks out when I thought I could. So sorry. It won't happen today, multiple unexpected things have popped up. Maybe tomorrow.

    The fact that you're doing this, is a success by itself. And it'll come when it has to come and that's enough :-)
