A little while back in my post on Misc Store Amsterdam I mentioned I had a great idea how to use the Ticket List booklets (the biotop sable 58.07) from Le Typograph. Well, they make an Inkophile's life so much easier as you can make these Color Chart Wheels with them. I started off with my fave color. Guess what that is?

Little nano-alpaca is carefully helping me choose the color gradient.
Then it's swabbing time! Q-tips are used well in this house hold!
I write down the manufacturer and color of ink underneath each swab. And some 'figure eights' for fun.
The end result:
I love how you can fan these out as wheels! The plastic ring is holds the stubs together very well. The paper is really sturdy and you could use the backsides of the ticket stubs as well.
The use of these Color Chart Wheels is awesome. You can discover which inks matches to each other and with that also find a good replacement for an ink that is discontinued. Like Caran d'Ache Caribbean Sea for instance. Very close match to Diamine Marine.
I have made a yellow/orange one as well and my plan is to make a rainbow out of these chart wheels.
This one will be on display at the Misc Store soon :)
Meanwhile I hope this inspires you to make a few of your own. If you do, I would love to see it :)
Thanks for stopping by!
