Noodler’s Rome Burning – Is it a planet?


Just had to post this. I’ve recently been testing fountain pen inks at a much larger size. In this case Noodler’s Rome Burning. Image size 270mm diameter. I still can’t quite get over that you can get ALL this from what many people consider to be a fairly limp brown writing ink. But there you have it – a newly discovered planet from just utilising it’s natural chromatography with a few brush flicks of household bleach and few brush flicks of Rome Burning on top of that. It looks like peeling or plate tectonic activity? Pure serendipity and all from one humble fountain pen ink.

Art created on Bockingford watercolour paper with watercolour brushes.

Just for the record – I do this for myself, I receive no remuneration what-so-ever and I tell it exactly how I see it.
