    OMG those Moley pages are GEORGEOUS ladies!! I would love to do a 1/1 trade with someone but my Moley is only a 2-pager if that makes any difference.....

    I also have the smaller "pocket" size one but it is almost full.
    I'm gonna' lurk for a bit more!

    Since I have pretty much given up finding a moleskine exchange that is NOT FULL, I think I will try this approach...will return with proper info...

    Hi you all,
    I'm lurking for now. In the meantime I've been playing with a japanese moly and have been painting in it with watercolors, applied with a bit less water than usual. Not quite dry brush, but not all juicy for great blended washes, either. So I was wondering about trying for that kind of trade. My next experiments are going to be gouache and some holbein irodori traditional japanese watercolors, which work drier than other tube watercolors.

    Also, in regular japanese moly trading, do players usually fill both sides of the moly, or just one side of the folded scroll? I can see how, if it is two sides, working in any way with even damp watercolor brushes might disturb a painting on the reverse side.

    While I'm learning these things, I'll just lurk, enjoy, get my wishes etc statement ready, and if watercolors or gouache won't work, eventually invest in some tria or copics.

    Thank you for starting this innovative way to trade molys!

    This is what I bought is it the right journal?
    The Moleskine Cahier [kaa yAy] Pocket Plain Notebooks are offered as a set of 3 notebooks with plain (blank) pages, each with a heavy duty cardboard cover with visible stitching on the spine that matches the cover color. Each Pocket Plain Cahier is 3.5 x 5.5 inches with 64 acid-free pages (32 leaves), with the last 16 sheets detachable by means of a micro-perforated edge. Inside the back page there is a spacious pocket for notes or clippings. I have not seen an accordion style in our area.

    here are the pics of the moleskin notebook I am using.Progress this far. Any constructive critiques welcomed!I will be colouring my back and front covers. Also I use gesso to cover the ruled lines also to give a grip for my medias used. I'm ok if you pretty the backing pages or if you stick two pages together to give sturdiness.

    Just received my new Japanese Moley (the one with the 60 pages harmonica folded - hope that it's the one you all use?) and I would love to join in the fun (missing all the moley swaps that there are and have been, this looks like a good sollution).

    1: THEME: Anything Japanese (geisha, samurai, martial arts are my favourites but I also love Japanese landscapes, Oriental paintings, sushi - you name it - have a ball!!)
    2: DO'S: I love hand-painted/hand-drawn work - if you can add a haiku that would be great, otherwise a few lines or poem on Japan will be welcome too (not a writer? Without text will be fine too)
    DON'TS: Please no bulky embellishments (my moley needs to travel long distances so please limit yourself to drawing and an occassional collage).

    3: LOCATION: The Netherlands
    4: 3#pages
    5. Trade: INTERNATIONAL
    6: COMMENTS: My first moley so I assume that we work on the front of the pages and leave the back blank (or add artist info there)?

    Can't wait to get my first moley on the road!

    Question. I have a regular sketchbook moleskine I have been sketching in, but I do not have a Japanese style moleskine. Is that acceptable or does it absolutely have to be no questions asked Japanese style? I am seeing some posted art that is not Japanese fold out style, but normal two pages side by side.

    I know at least one person that has a regular journal as her book. I guess it's up to the individual.

    I have a Japanese (Harmonica style) moleskine but I wouldn't mind working in/on another type of book either. So let me know if you're interested MoonDog. I only advise to wait with sending books until January (after the holidays)... there's so much mail going round in December that the risk of your book getting lost is larger.

    I agree Nicky, I wasn't going to start swaping mine until after December. I wouldn't want anyone's books to be MIA. :-)

    I have to figure out what sort of cover design I want on mine. Anyone have any suggestions?
