Inky Goodness: The life of an inkophile...

This is what my coffee table set up looks like on a random sunday evening:

Getting ready to swab these on maruman mnemosyne word cards #inkophile #Fpgeeks #FPN #fountainpennetwork #fountainpeninks #montblanc #sailorjentle #parker #waterman #jherbin #privatereserve #pelikan #pilotiroshizuku

On the couch next to me a tray of inks waiting to be swabbed on Maruman Mnemosyne wordcards. The tray included lot of older Sailor inks which are discontinued now.

Swabbing away while binge watching "Being Human" episodes. Used a waterman 12 to write the make and color of the ink. Lots of pretty and saturated colors in this swab round! Such a shame those bright, happy Sailor Jentle colors are no longer regularly available!

The Q-tips after one swabbing session leaves a pretty "Q-typical abstract art" and it's such a fun sight to see!

I still have about 3 full trays to swab and 3 more seasons of Being Human to watch... and a few new inks are coming my way soon too... so much to look forward to! 

What are your ink swabbing habits? 

Thanks for stopping by!
