Do you have an ink dependence? I can help...

July Ink Drop!

7/13/12
This month's ink drop arrived just as I was leaving for VT to attend a cousin's wedding. It was a really nice wedding outside on a beautiful Vermont Summer day. Congrats to Sarah and Owen! I also got to spend a lot of time with some family that I haven't seen in a long time. Awesome trip, overall.
It did keep me from posting an ink drop for a while, though, so here it is. The theme is Olympics, and the inks are from different countries and represent the various colors of the Olympic rings. 
I wasn't too impressed with the red and the gold, but they've grown on me. The red is a pretty shocking pink, and the gold is kind of a weird mustardy-yellow. Neither looked all that great when I first smeared them, but the dried product is interesting. I don't know if I'd use them to write with, but I might. You never know. 

I also did a video for this ink drop, and I'm having trouble rotating it, so you might have to tilt your head a little. One day I'll learn to use the video functions more-better.

Awesome - thanks for the post! The De Atramentis Gold does look weird at first, but it looks pretty nice inked up in a pen.
