I’ve purchased a glass pen, just to check how that thing would actually work.
It seems… Nice? Holds a lot of ink, for sure.
Here’s the actual test.
I was looking for a new exciting ink and found “Calligraphy Ink” by WaN, very lovely, colours not usually available from other companies. Also, can be used in fountain pens.
I’ve bought some very plushy polyester yarn during vacation, but unfortunately the labels are lost somewhere on the way. Anyway, I had 2 balls of it, one white and one blue, and it’s just enough to make something, but not enough to make something big.
I decided to put the yarn through the knitting mill and see what happens. Sometimes if the yarn is thick enough, the mill doesn’t cooperate, but since this is essentially a string with fluff in it, it magically managed.
The result is a tube scarf:
I can easily put it over my head and it’s wide enough to not snag on my glasses, so a hat made of similar yarn would also work for some pretty big heads.
Purple? Green? Purple!
A very nice green indeed.
For some reason, this one was actually quite orange.
It’s a pretty red, but nothing deep. Doesn’t talk about philosophy at all.
Actually, I think it’s pretty basic.
4 writing nibs and the Vermillion drawing ink test.
This one was filmed first, but uploaded much later than the Ultramarine video.
Ultramarine drawing ink, tested with 4 of my writing nibs.
Turned out to be much thicker and somewhat smoother in use than the red ones.
