  rf2444, this isn't properly..., February 26, 2010
rf2444, this isn't properly speaking a forum, but I'll offer some information: the effect shown above is obtained by transferring ink from one pen's nib to another by gravity and capillary action.

Use two pens, inked in different colors: one in (say) red, the other in blue. Hold the red pen upright with its nib up. Briefly -- *briefly*, no more than a few seconds -- touch the blue pen's nib to that of the red pen. (Cap the blue pen and set it aside.) When you write with the red pen now, it will briefly write in blue; it will gradually change through shades of violet and plum until you are writing entirely in red again. This is a wonderful effect and well worth the price of the pens!
