I had the same thought!  Thanks for sharing so much of your incredible knowledge and advice, Jean.  Your depth of knowledge and your practical, thoughtful approaches to the questions asked here are invaluable.

Welcome to the forum, Birdy!  I also favor the more flexible nibs - less tiring!  It's great that you've found what you like and can expand from there.  That 101 is flexible, fine, reliable and economical - lots to love. Enjoy!

You can use watercolor paints with a either a little (but enough so that it flows from your pen) or a lot of water added.  There really is no "right" formula.  The Hydrus colors are really high intensity/saturation, and those, too, can be watered down.  I understand that you don't want to have to spend a lot of time getting the consistency right, but it will require some experimentation.  I also understand wanting to avoid brush loading, but if you're using tube watercolor, you will want to at least start off experimenting with brush loading - otherwise, you will waste a lot of paint while you're figuring out how to use it to your liking. When you have an idea of the water to paint ratio that you prefer, then you can more confidently load up a little jar for dipping.

Enjoy the process! :)

I'm so glad you weren't in the immediate area!  I had a brief moment of "oh no!" thinking of you when I read the news, but then remembered you live in... Franklin?  Still, what a scare!  Thanks for checking in on us when you can. :)

Happy New Year!

Here is a recent post regarding sumi inks with some discussion on Moon Palace.  The video may help you out.  Moon Palace is my favorite of them all, and I do not like Kuretake primarily because it eats my nibs, but I also prefer the performance of MP.  Both benefit from being diluted with water.
