Hi members of FPN!


This is my first review, so I'm not sure if I covered everything, but I hope it helps!  For the water test, I wrote "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" twice and passed one over with a wet Q-tip and dropped some water on the other via an eyedropper.  I bought the ink as part of the FPN group buy about a month ago along with Toucan Bright Blue and Violet.  Of the three, Aqua is probably my favorite.

Thanks for putting up this review - seems to cover the bases to me! Your description of the ink' properties is similar to mine too: well-behaved, a little under saturated, but shades really nicely;not even remotely waterproof... I quite like Aqua too: sits nicely between Turquoise and Bright Green, but I find it a little more intense than both. All in all, a pretty good ink.

Powerful and refreshing green

Tricked throughout the centuries...

For centuries people had been tricked by kings & "religion-alism"

In the 20th century people got tricked by communism

Today people get tricked by (neo)capitalism  :)
