Um... I think I'm doing it wrong? Or am I maybe too low level to tag?

Works perfectly thanks guys. I filled a jam jar ;) (as I have no small containers to keep it in I thought I could just dispense as needed) Very pleased. The consistency is great and it flows much better from the pen than the india ink I have does. Happy Karen :)

Thanks folks :) I want to use it in my summer brief for college (I've to do a homage to a colour) However... me being me I'm approaching this at an angle and writing what colour is and how we perceive it, like you would describe to someone who perhaps was blind. I also have decided to do a spectrum of colours with several example descriptions for each.

pink is the colour of my son's cheeks when he has a fever
black is the buffering blanket between you and the rest of the world when you just can't face life
green is the zing of mint in your tea
and such like...

I have a 100 page sketchbook I was given by college at the end of term so 100 lines, 100 pages and minimal illustration. As much as I like the black ink I borrowed I really love the look of walnut ink and I think it will give a much more organic look to the typography :) My lecturer did say ANY medium ;)

I really appreciate the help folks :)

Is there a way of tagging members in posts? I know on some platforms it is achieved with an @ symbol before the user's name line @Thistleyroses . is there a function like this on Flourish Forum?

I am quite literally swooning from this thread.

I love beautiful stationary and I can NEVER get my hands on any!!! So frustrating. (granted I would probably also be someone who kept it rather than using it but... you know lol)

At least now I can order custom papers through college. Perhaps what I should be doing is making stationary rather than trying to find it :p It's something that never crossed my mind until now. Perhaps I will use it for my branding project in my graded unit for my HND.

Tools & Supplies / Ink mixing question

Hi all :)
I was just wondering what ration you guys that mix your own walnut ink from van dyck crystals like to use between water and crystals? I have had the crystals and a new oblique pen for a week or so now and I have been enjoying my new pen but not yet made up any ink (I wanted to get a better container to store the crystals after opening the bag) anyway I thought it best to ask about consistency as I'm a newbie with regard to pointed pen calligraphy but an uber-noob with regard to walnut ink!

Any help and guidance appreciated
Thanks all :)
