What 'Black Swannish' color would you like to see next?

Monday: Ink Stuff

What's next??
Noodler's Black Swan in Australian Roses has been a very intriguing and popular color. Noodler's has mentioned that this will be the first in a new series of highly-shading fountain pen inks, and I don't believe the future colors are set in stone.

What color of high-shading ink ala Black Swan would you like to see come out next? I can pass the word up and maybe encourage your next color preference (no promises though!).

  1. I need something between PR Spearmint and Avocado. I would call it a "Sexton Green." The reason being is back in the early 90's I was a college student at Crown College in Powell (Knoxville), TN, the president of the college wrote with green pens. I mean, from marking his Bible, to writing a note, he had a green pen, always the same green pen. My Junior year, he came into chapel with a huge cardboard box of them and said, "You boys want some of my pens?" They were all sharpie like pens, but a different brand - I grabbed four of them and lost them over time - they were all about out of ink anyway.
    Dr. Sexton made that color indelible in all of our minds. Over the years, I've gotten a couple hand written notes from him and I've lost all of them, sadly.
    I would love to see a high shader like that pen. You can see a sample of it on the Crown site here: http://thecrowncollege.com/welcome/
    "Sexton Green" - isn't that classy?

  2. A blue like the Diamine Majestic Blue. i think it will be totally awesome if that kind of blue is able to shade well.

  3. Love Mr. Hines's story, and am seconding his "Sexton Green". Mr. Tardiff, I hope you read it!

    A "supershading" gray-to-black might be interesting. I'm also patial to red and orange, but Noodler's already has some pretty high-shading inks in that spectrum. (Apache Sunset for one, and possibly Habanero—I haven't gotten to try the latter myself.)

  5. Sage green or spearmint to match my favorite business casual shirt.

  6. I'd love a green-grey. I'm thinking of something in the idiom of an ink that has both grey color tones like Diamine Graphite and olive tones like Montblanc Racing Green.

  7. BayState Blue with shading..just for the controversy!!

  8. I have no idea if this is even possible, but I'd LOVE to see one that shades turquoise and dark purple. And another one that is a mix of light brown and dark maroon. That one might be more feasible.

  9. Diamine Marine, only a little darker but not quite Noodler's Turquoise, that fades into a Pelikan Jade on the lighter/thin strokes.

  10. Blue-black shader and a green shader would be my votes.

  11. Interesting, I didn't expect so many greens! I'd personally love to see blue, something of the Penman Sapphire/Diamine Majestic Blue color range!

  14. I want a highly-shading blue, as well. Black Swan in Australian Roses is my favorite ink, but blue is my favorite color.

  15. This is originally what Black Swan in English Roses (before it came out) was designed to be, but Nathan wasn't able to formulate a blue with the same shading characteristics of Australian Roses. I've asked him specifically about this and essentially, it's not possible right now with the dyes available.
