[Sold] Magic Mushrooms – hand-painted fountain pen


After painting the Psychedelic Shrooms pen, artist and graphic designer Carla Nel was so inspired she then created this artwork on a fountain pen. The background, painted in watercolour, are luminous blues, turquoises, cyans and ceruleans, with just a touch of phthalo green.. The shrooms have been drawn and stippled in an extremely fine fineliner pen against a white background, and Carla has included a wide variety of exotic and magic mushrooms

The pen was made by us at Stanford Pen Studio, drawn and painted by Carla Nel, then coated in a clear resin by ourselves and given its final shape, polished, and buffed. It has a bronze cap band and section ring, as well as a bronze logo medallion in the cap finial, and a turquoise grip section. And yip, there is indeed an ‘Easter egg’ (a tiny shroom on the barrel finial).

One thing we should emphasise is that each of our hand-painted fountain pens is a 1/1 original work of art. No-one else will ever own an identical pen.


Available in Jowo #6 in polished steel. Please select Fine, Medium or Broad at the check-out.

The Jabulani model


This is a gently curvaceous model, with a relatively wide girth of 16 mm (0,6″) narrowing to a 10,5 mm (0,4″)  grip section. It has our logo on the finial, and the finial is ever-so-slightly rounded, rather than dead flat, which adds to the pen’s elegance.
