[Sold] Mushroom Folk painted fountain pen


Carla Nel is crazy about mushrooms, snails, faerie folk, butterflies, tattoos … and has now combined these elements into a tattoo sleeve. (In other words a single cohesive design that could be tattooed over a large area such as an entire arm, giving the appearance of a sleeve.) Her turquoise-grey background provides a muted, subtle foil for the intricate art. And her trademark stippled artwork would be absolutely perfect as a tattoo.

Each of our hand-painted fountain pens is a 1/1 original work of art. No-one else will ever own an identical pen.

PS: One of our pen friends expressed interest in this pen when Carla first gave a sneak peek via a Story on Instagram … unfortunately Instagram Stories last for only 24 hours so we lost that message. If it was you and you find that this pen has already been sold, please don’t worry … Carla would be happy to paint a pen just for you.


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.
