Thanks for the conclusions and succinct write-up - great job!

While it's a pity that the ink was so aptly named - onward, to new experiments!

But I am really amazed by the range of color that we got. If I hadn't seen it emerge in two different shades from my own two pens I would be hard put to believe that Pa Pen used the same sample that I got!

Again, thanks for thinking up and doing this amazing project. It's been wonderful fun, and I still have some pure Unobtanium in one pen to play with... it's really good on Tomoe River!


save energy - write with a fountain pen...

A little belated but here's my review of this ink. So far I've really enjoyed it. It's the driest ink I've tried but it still has a really nice flow. I like the shading. And it flows very nicely :D.

Here's some pictures of the back of the sheets of paper I used so you can see if there's any ghosting or bleedthrough.

I got this ink *all over* my hands when I opened up the package. I thought it would be fun to show what this ink looked like on my hand. :D

I'll keep on struggling, 'cause that's the measure of a man.

Well, I'm not sure they look any different with my scans as opposed to the scans of Cyhz.

Looking at everyone else's scans I still can't figure out what was up with mine. I triple checked that I made it up exactly to your specs, but mine had way less green in it and was a bit darker too. It actually looked mostly like straight Thistle without the sheen and a bit less dry.

Oh that's what makes it crazy.  Don't worry, be happy.
