I've been experimenting with Yama-budo. I put a small amount in a dish and left it exposed at room temperature before writing with it...
This week was one of the saddest in recent years after a friend's tragic fatal accident at age 41. I was needfully distracting my mind in the hour before their funeral service in a different city, so dropped in to a brick and mortar fp store. I had a memory that Yama-Budo sheened, but the storeperson didn't know enough about inks to confirm it. Bought it anyway. Then came across this post again tonight while checking whether it was a sheener. I've not even inked a pen with it - thanks to Goudy's post it's gone straight into an open inkwell. It's now serving as an incentive to start and complete a uni research report, so a few days dehydrating will work nicely (probably a week!). I want to write another small note to the grieving wife as well, so all up, a perfect purchase.
