Okay. Here's today's run. I think I've (finally) gotten back to the original, after ... not ... quite getting back to the original for the next few batches.
Click either image to load the (ridiculous) original size image. These were done on HP 32lb paper, because... that's what I grabbed. I wrote a bit on Office Depot sugarcane legal (letter) pad paper as well, and it looks essentially identical. This is, to me, the most interesting property of this ink, as that paper is quite absorbent, whereas the HP is quite not, and yet they shade similarly. Hm.
Quick not-really-a-review-but-needed-to-write-with-it image, which makes it look a bit darker than it perhaps really is:
I might reach out to a couple of you - I'd be interested in a second opinion / review before I send it off for genuine consideration by the masses. (Personally I don't much like it when I mix something I love, only later to find out that it has some major flaw I've overlooked, such as insane feathering on common paper, or the tendency to catch fire when exposed to free writing, or sudden tentacles appearing at night and feeding on prior pages...)
