No doubt that this Visconti Purple is not as "vibrant" like in Korybas review, and Sandy1 test confirmed it ...
Can someone be kind to suggest a purple ink to resemble that of the "magic reviews" ... If exits already?!
The Diamine Bilberry maybe?
The Sargasso Sea is very nice, but I do not know if it's still for sale to the public, too bad!
In the "Dramatic, with Terrific Shading" category, I point you to Black Swan in North African Violets, a recipe ink, easy to mix up.
UPDATE: I like the less dramatic but great shading ink of Rohrer & Klingner Eisen-Gallus-Tinte Scabiosa (Iron/Gall Nut-ink Scabiosa Purple)
