"Stormy Seas"

2015-03and-04-tta-09-t-stormy-sea-with-lightning-ss149368970-300x200.jpg

If you've ever seen a storm coming over the ocean or the Great Lakes you know it's an amazing sight. Dark clouds, lightning, the wind blows, and the waves crash. Then, just as suddeny as it began, the storm is over and it's calm again.  It's part of every spring here in Michigan.

Stormy Grey by J. Herbin has golden particles in it that like to settle to the bottom, so make sure you shake the sample well! 

 

Pelikan Edelstein Fountain Pen Ink Sample, "Aquamarine"

Brand New from Pelikan- "Aquamarine" the 2016 Pelikan fountain pen ink limited edition color.  This shade was chosen by the Facebook fans of Pelikan International. Our initial sampling of the ink showed it to be a beautiful blue green color- more on the blue spectrum than green.

Fountain Pen Ink Cartridge Filling Syringe

Since the fountain pen we included in your box this month only allows an ink cartridge, we wanted to give you a way to refill your cartridge with your favorite ink once it runs out. Refill your fountain pen ink cartridges with our 5 ml capacity syringes with blunt tip 20 gauge tips that can be used to fill or empty fountain pen ink cartridges. The blunt tips are 1-1/2" long so you can pull ink from most ink bottles.
