And two more colors

Oh, yeah, I forgot; I use these two Prismacolor pencils a lot in making rough drafts.  So now I have mixed some ink to match them, too, and I am working them into current designs for Song of Songs.  

At right: Pale gray lavender-lilac and chartreuse/lime 
In fact, if you don't intend to get any new supplies, you still might want to have these convenient bottles for custom-mixing small amounts of ink. The droppers let you fill your pen neatly instead of dipping.   

 bottles: Vivaplex, 24, Clear, 15 ml (1/2 oz) Glass Bottles, with Glass Eye Droppers

Calligraphers welcome every chance to explore color; its hue, saturation, and brightness, and how it changes when another color is nearby.  It's one more way to let the reader hear the tone of voice that words on paper suggest.
