Fountain pen inks, made by a variety of companies in a rainbow of colors.
Don’t you love getting packages in the mail?

Yesterday, in the mailbox was a small brown box.
I wondered what it was.
I had almost forgotten a recent purchase of a bottle of new ink.

But this isn’t just any ink, it is an anniversary ink by a company called J. Herbin.
It was formulated in honor of their 340th anniversary in 2010.
They have been in business since 1670, three-hundred-forty-three years.
Wow, 343 years, that’s a very long time to be making ink, don’t you agree?

This is the most expensive ink I’ve ever purchased, $22 for a bottle.
This lovely ink is a rusty, blood red with a shimmer of gold.
It truly is the most beautiful ink I’ve ever had the pleasure of writing with.
So beautiful in fact, that I ordered a second bottle after testing this first one.
The bottle is beautiful with a faux red wax cap and a real gold wax seal.
as soon as I opened the box and bottle,
I had to ink a pen and write a few words.
This calligraphy isn’t intended to be pretty,
just a couple scribbles.
To see the ink

This second image has a texture applied to it,
I’ve never added a texture before,
This one was of spilled ink and paper.
Interesting isn’t it?

and her new meme on Tuesdays,
for photos with added textures,
called ‘Tuesday Muse.’
