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!
