That Glacier is incredible. The best part of this thread is seeing your Spencerian!

I like a lot of these colors so far. Even the “bah humbug.” The chameleon aspect is definitely more subtle than the other chameleon inks so far, but I like it as a more muted red.

P.S.: I just got a Lamy Safari pen with converter (uh oh).

Day 13:  Weeping Willow

A standard ink which surprisingly (to me) needed no gum arabic to use with a pointed pen. Another surprise was the colors it bled into. So surprising that I thought my nib was contaminated with another color, so I cleaned it very well and put some more ink on the wet paper towel. Virtually a complete rainbow of colors. Not a big fan of the color, although it does look like willow. Let it bleed.

I really like the color. It’s like Walnut Ink but with colors.

Day 14:  Rainbows End

A chameleon ink plus 5 drops gum arabic. I thought this might be gold, but turns out it's just the highest/lowest frequency colors visible in the rainbow--violet and red. Clever. Interesting.

Day 15:  Walnut

A standard ink with no added gum arabic (its most surprising quality--can be used right out of the bottle with a pointed pen). Very dense ink--could not get light to shine through the bottle for a good photo. I very much like this color walnut, better than the ink I made from crystals years ago and others I've bought.

Day 16:  Merry + Bright

A shimmer ink plus 20 drops of gum arabic. Lovely Christmas color--might get a big bottle of this when/if available.

Day 17: Lavender Frost

A shimmer ink plus10 drops gum arabic. Rather a subtle lavender. I'd prefer a more vibrant shade, but nice.

Day 18:  Blizzard

A shimmer ink with no gum arabic. I guess all the metallics thicken this ink enough to use with pointed pen. Sophisticated.

I really like the Blizzard. The Lavender Frost looks Indigo in the bottle.

Day 19:  Cinnabun

A scented ink plus 5 drops gum arabic.  Nice if you like cinnamon. The scent seems to fade after a few days.

Day 20:  Astral

A chameleon in plus a whopping 35 drops of gum arabic. Could probably use more, but the bottle could only hold this much. Appears flat, deep black unless under very bright light at an angle as shown here.
