Private Reserve Rose Rage and Sepia Introduction

Rose Rage is a VERY bright bubblegum pink color, very vibrant! Sepia is a yellowish brown, similar to Diamine Golden Brown but with shading that is out of this world.

Diamine Majestic Blue Ink Review

I have to premise this review by saying that I'm a huge fan of Diamine Majestic Blue!! I'm biased as I love this color, though it does have its quirks. It's an extremely saturated color, I mean extremely. It's a deep, dark blue with a unique red overtone to it.

Noodler's Beaver Ink Review

This is an overlooked ink, much like many of the standard Noodler's colors. The brand attracts a lot of attention with the really flashy and waterproof inks, but their standard line of colors are actually quite nice with really good shading. Beaver is a unique color that I think many of you might enjoy if you're looking for a dark brown with a slight red hint.

Private Reserve Orange Crush Ink Review

This is a very unique ink, and it performs really well. Though you probably will have to search to find a use for this type of color, it is a really fun one to use. Though the bottle isn't flashy, it's an affordable ink with qualities much like more expensive inks. I highly recommend it.

Diamine Pumpkin Ink Review

Diamine Pumpkin was another ink we chose for our October 2010 Ink Drop. Not only does it have a fitting name, but it's really a fabulous ink. It puts you in such an Autumn mood, and performs really well.

Moving Forward

The last Goulet pens have been sold, I am officially out of the wood pen turning business. It's hard to believe that this chapter in my life is really over. I've been packing my tools and cleaning up my shop for weeks, but now that the pens are gone, it's really hitting me that it's over.

Here they are, the colors for October's Ink Drop! The these is Autumn Leaves, to get that feeling of all of the changing red, orange, and brown leaf colors. After having very bright and vibrant colors in September's drop, we went for much more earthy, practical, and usable ink colors for October.
