Re: Ink Samples and Setting Up Lightfastness Tests

I wish the Fountain Pen Network would do this kind of "wash test" as part of their standard test suite in addition to their favorite "throw it in the pool for an hour" wash test. Some deep, rich, elegant inks turn silly candy colors when brushed with water, some have their lines wash right off the page, some create rock solid lines with only the faintest wash.... Finding an ink with a beautiful line that doesn't wash away yet produces a beautiful wash can't be done without doing what you're doing. Those few candidates that pass probably won't fare well in the lightfastness test, but maybe we'll get lucky.
