I really like the color alas, this is the ink that requires an easy to clean pen because both Cyber6 and I have found that it separates.  Cyber6, I LOVE the samples you did!

I could not get this one to mix well at 16% or 8% - but it is pretty.  I doubt this one will make the cut, which is many ways is too bad, because the color is something special.

Agree.. is a beautiful color, and I am not crazy about pinks.   We should check with SuSeMaI if it can be reformulated.

To me this ink is so strange. The part at the top is PINK - HOT PINK - 1980s Rock Pink.  The part that becomes soft sediment and sits on the paper is RED - BRIGHT RED.  It doesn't seem to matter what saturation level, this ink will not mix fully.  Sigh.  I do really like it.  I should compare it to Cape Cod Cranberry or Diamine Cerise.

OMG Amber.. that is an awesome idea...  I am thinking this could be a great substitute to Levenger Pinkly ... which was discontinued and loads of people are still mourning the loss... 

 

I have a sample of Pinkly... I will do a couple of swabs side by side...
