October 2015 Ink Drop

October 2015 Ink Drop


Another great Ink Drop from Goulet Pens! This month’s drop has a spooky, witchy theme, which I loved.


Witching Hour


  • Waterman Mysterious Blue
  • Noodler’s Nightshade
  • DeAtramentis Fog Grey
  • Private Reserve Black Magic Blue
  • Noodler’s Heart of Darkness

Here’s the Ink Drop Doodle! Eyeball soup anyone? ;) I used all the colored inks in this drop separately (did not mix) and outlined the doodle using Noodler’s Heart of Darkness with a Pilot Metropolitan (F nib), Prismacolor Markers in grey tones for the skin on SN2 paper*.

Waterman Mysterious Blue was a surprise and gave me a few head tilts to make sure I was still using the right ink :) When used the ink looks more blue and then it dries this really pretty desaturated greenish blue!

Super neat! Here are some more images:

Note!  My scanner pulled a bit more violet out of Private Reserve Black Magic Blue – especially in the doodle, it’s more blueish than purple. I took photos with and without flash, so you can get an idea of the color. I might do a visual review, so I can compare it with other ink swatches. It is a real night indigo ink!

I really liked this theme! It is a good set of inks for a spooky October! My favorites are Waterman Mysterious Blue and Noodler’s Nightshade!

What are your favorites from this month’s Ink Drop?

(Images scanned in with minimal level adjustment (unless noted) and photos taken with Samsung NX mini (with and without flash). Ink swatches are done on Maruman Mnemosyne Word cards with a dip pen and Tachikawa Comic Nib G. As with any ink scans and/or photos I try to be consistent in color. What you see on your monitor might not be the actual color, but it should be a fairly close representation.)
