    Default InkVenting



    I've been having a lot of fun with my 2022 Diamine InkVent Calendar, Green Edition. But rather than clogging up other threads, I am going to put them here from now, starting with a photo and video of the inks I with which I did not do sketches.

    Lots of shimmers, sheeners, and chameleons that are really, really tough for my pathetic 'skills' to capture.

    Fabulous, Sailor! I really like the scroll, curled paper, and similar frames you added, as well as the loose sketch and wash style. Very nice little drawings. Thank you for sharing!

    A couple more.

    21, Cosy Up, a pretty salmon pinkish coral:



    22, Deck The Halls (video):

    https://extras.ourpatioparty.com/fil...t_2022-n22.mp4

    'Deck' (almost typed Holodeck!) is deep purple with copper and (I think) silver shimmer, but the main color looks black in the video.

    Almost there. Happy Holidays!

    That Cardinal ink really stands out. It's one of the most interesting reds I've ever beheld. (Fine word that, beheld.) Are those inks available individually, do you know, or do you have to buy the whole set? (And for that matter, is it/are they still available now that it's almost 2024?)

    Enquiring minds want to know.

    I like almost all the inks in this one, and bought mine (nine days into InkVent) off Fleabay, so I guess you could try there. Most of the previous InkVent Editions have featured individual bottles for sale.

    The Inkvent inks are all available individually in 50ml glass bottles with four little feet. It will be a couple of months before the latest Purple edition 2023 Inkvent bottles will be available but previous ones are all on the Diamine website and probably on many other outlets.
    Cardinal is a standard red from the Green edition 2022 inkvent calendar so they should all be available on the Diamine website and in many other outlets.

    This is InkVent Day 23, Celebration, and I really love this color. It's a pinkish copper with delicate pink-gold shimmer.

    At first, I thought it looked similar (in the bottle) to InkVent Vintage Copper. But the video shows otherwise; Vintage Copper's base color is darker, and the shimmer's different.

    As does the screen cap.



    Almost there. Happy Holidays.

    Merry Christmas Eve to my FPG friends!

    One More Sleep goes down lighter, and dries darker. I love this color AND the Kakimori brass dip nib. It's round, hollow, slitted, lays down anything from a needlepoint to a swath, and is the Swiss Army Nib every inkster needs.



    …Yes…that's me right now…

    Christmas Day's ink is Best Wishes. Here's the still:



    And the video.

    https://extras.ourpatioparty.com/fil...est_Wishes.mp4

    Whoa. This is a deep teal/green chameleon ink. Viewed head-on, it looks almost black.

    The green shimmer's apparent in the bottle but the copper/gold isn't. But the effect is reversed when the ink dries.

    You could just sit there mesmerized, moving the page around and watching the ink shift.

    In all, this is one of the best ink collections out there. I loved just about every color.

    And Merry Christmas to you all.
