Rapidograph pens + new fountain pen ink = adventure
5x8" Canson watercolor paper, Rapidograph with .6mm nib,
J. Herbin Eclat de Saphir fountain pen ink
The blue mandala promised in Ink Experiments... not just any blue, a lush sapphire blue ink from J. Herbin (find it at Pendemonium). You can keep drawing ad infinitim (or until you run out of paper, ink or sanity), but at some point you've got to call it. Mandalas are floating around my head, in vivid, flowing colors on thick white paper. Check out how this all started, with Rapidograph doodles and the pink ink/paper/pen test at Ink Experiments #3.
