    Default Mystery Ink #45, #46, and #47

    First, I would like to thank DrPenfection for her generous contribution to fund the postage for an extra international ink packet. So this round we will have available 3 MI international ink packets instead of 2. Many thanks to DrPenfection!!

    Mystery Ink is now open to FPG veterans, n00bs, newbies, and lurkers. You volunteer, I send free ink, you write with it and post your thoughts and observations. Guessing is welcome, but not required. There is nothing to "win" aside from perhaps personal satisfaction that you recognized it.

    No guess is confirmed until the Mystery ink is finally revealed. The point of the mystery ink threads is an unbiased review. Fear not about the quality of your handwriting or sketching abilities. We don't care. We are all appreciative of those with the gift of artistic ability, but how well you draw or write doesn't impact your ability to test an ink and provide your opinion on it.

    I will act as the Procurer, Packer, and Post Office Porter. This ink flight will consist of 1 packet containing 3 inks, each vial filled with 3mls of Mystery Ink labeled MI-45, MI-46, and MI-47. There will be 9 packets available and only 3 of the packets will be for overseas participants due to the high cost of international postage ( US$17.85/each ). If you are international, please let me know. If there are more sign-ups for overseas participants than slots, then I will run a Random Number Generator to pick. As per past tradition, if you are brand new to Mystery Ink you will have a Priority Spot!

    The inks in this ink flight are dye based, not pigmented, no shimmer and not iron gall. I don’t use any of the Noodler’s Bay State inks, so there won’t be any in the ink flights I send out.

    Post below if you would like to volunteer to receive a free ink flight. I will leave this open until 12 Noon PDT Friday 02 September [ 2000hrs GMT ].

    Note: Packets sent to the UK generally arrive within 10 working days. To the EU it may take much longer.

    Covid-19 Precautions -- I am now fully inoculated and boosted ( 4 shots ), but for everyone's safety ink samples will be prepared using an N-95 face mask and gloves. Ink Packets will be put together with an N-95 face mask and freshly washed hands. ( Sorry, but it's impossible to use sticky tape with gloves on... )

    Until then, please stay Safe and Healthy!

    Thank you junglejim and thanks DrPenfection.

    I would like to participate, but I prefer newcomers to benefit. So, deal me in if there's an extra-slot.

    I'm in, but as always as long as it's not taking the spot of someone new, and I absolutely encourage someone new to try this and see just how much fun it is.

    Thank you junglejim for once again putting on this amazing inky fun

    Very good! DrPenfection has made another generous donation towards International Postage so we now have 4 slots available instead of the usual 2. When I asked her about it, she replied "It is my pleasure to help others enjoy different inks." So again, many thanks to you DrPenfection for all of your help!!

    So far we have the following signed-up for International Packets: Jaguarish (Slot Guaranteed as a New Participant), Yazeh, Chrissy, and Pterodactylus.

    For the US Participants we have: Sailor Kenshin and mreeveshp.

    I will leave this open until Friday to see if anyone else would like to participate.

    All the Best.

    The Mystery Ink Sign-ups are now closed. It is the start of our long Labor Day weekend here in the US so post offices will be closed on Monday. I will try and mail the packets out on Tuesday to all the participants.

    For International who will get Ink Packets are: Jaguarish, Yazeh, Chrissy, and Pterodactylus.

    The US who will get Ink Packets are: Sailor Kenshin, DrPenfection, and mreeveshp.

    Thank-you all for signing up!

    All the Best.

    Thanks a lot Jim & Dr. 👍👏

    I’m looking forward to get my hands on these inks and I’m sure this will be a lot of fun again. 😀
    Inktober is also approaching, so I think the mystery inks will become handy here as well. 🙃

    Just a quick note that all US Ink flights have been posted. All US participants have had their tracking numbers PM'ed to them.

    Unfortunately, our small town Post Office said local disruptions with Dementors (USPS Internet problems) have caused the International owls to flee. Will have to try again tomorrow. Sorry about that...

    Updated --- Dementors are now gone and all International Ink flights have been sent off. All International participants have had their tracking numbers PM'ed to them.

    Enjoy!

    All the Best.

    Thank you, junglejim!

    I re-read the Potter series earlier this year. I haven't seen all the movies. But reading all of the books, one after another, was really interesting. Ms. Rowling did a fairly good job of keeping the details consistent which seems to me to be difficult over a period of time.

    Actually, I just finished reading The Lord of the Rings series for the first time. I also haven't seen the movies yet, either. I hope to catch up on those sometime in the not too distant future.

    I enjoy reading much more than watching movies - when I get the chance.

    I do agree. Especially as the two mediums are not compatible
