Hello everyone

 

Has anyone bought the new Jules Verne ink from Organics studio?

I would like to see some handwritten samples (how it shades, and similar inks…).

 

I'm also interested in the other new inks by Organics.

Thanks!

Can anybody show a preview of this?  I have way too many dark blues and need a lighter blue, plus I love Jules Verne!

I'm curious as to what's in the ink.

 

Also surprised that their "Carbon Black" from the "elements" series isn't waterproof.  Sailor's Kiwa-Guro and Platinum's "Carbon Black" are.  Guessing that it's simply a collection of dyes and not really a true "carbon" ink at all.  Further surprised that they say it's not as "dark" as their Darwin black ink.

 

Not sure I like that blue...

Well, as it would make since that there is no uranium in our Uranium Green, there is no carbon in our Carbon black either.  We are very up front about our Elements Line being chemistry themed - they are all dye based. The Elements are all known to shade very well.   Darwin Black is made differently, and has more surfactants which allow for a different dye to be used, and so it is a truer black (it also is fast drying and more water resistant).

Hope that addresses your questions - and as far as not liking the blue, well that I can't help with :)

Well, I broke down and bought a bottle of Jules Verne and Edgar Allen Poe.  Isellpens had some Noddler's pens for $12 and I've wanted one for a while, so what are a couple of more inks while I am getting the pen :)  Great service by the way...

 

I am absolutely in love with Edgar Allen Poe, but Jules Verne???  Eh, not so much.  It is not a bad ink in any way and it behaves very well in my pens, writes very smoothly.  It is just a little subdued and a little watery.  I prefer my inks a little more saturated and bright. 

 

I've only used Edgar Allen Poe for a day and I just love this ink.  It is pretty similar to Diamine Oxblood, but with less saturation and much more shading.  Great ink.  I'll post some examples tonight.

I really like the Edgar Allan Poe--also reminds me of Oxblood or Noodler's Red-Black, but with an almost slightly purply tinge (just a tinge).  It's not water-resistant; that was the first thing I checked.  You can see a photo of a writing sample here (my write-up of a recently arrived Nakaya Naka-ai in the Japanese Pens forum):

I got a sample of this a few days ago that I've reviewed and been meaning to upload. I should have it up in the next few days! But a quick impression of it, it really is a beautiful color, one of my favorite blues. For the most part behavior is great, no bleed-through or show-through, but feathering does tend to be trend on cheaper papers when you've got a pen with a heavy flow. I'll have try it in a pen that's a bit drier. Lots of shading with quite a bit of water resistance. It's definitely worth at least a sample!

I'll be looking forward to that post!  I got a sample of Edgar Allan Poe from iSellPens last week and promptly loaded it into my Pilot Metropolitan.  It writes beautifully, but I was immediately struck by the Oxblood similarity and thought, "Well, probably the Diamine will be cheaper for a full bottle."  However!  If the shading is that dramatically different, then I could be swayed in the opposite direction.

Wait, there's no Jules Verne in the Jules Verne?  D@#n it!  :angry:

Nothing wrong with having too many blues I say. OrganicStudios' Manganate V is amazing.

 

From "The Properties And Frequencies Of Fountain Pen Ink Colors" by name witheld by request

 

Blue, representing the Element of Water, is the color of emotional work; love, peace, healing and protection. Considered the color of wisdom, thoughtfulness, and celestial regions, blue shares Friday and the planet Venus with green (as in aqua, or blue-green). Blue is identified with the signs of Virgo and Capricorn, the 5th (Throat) Chakra and the natural sciences. A feeling of youthfulness fills this color. Blue is an excellent hue for peacefulness and profound reflection. Use it for healing, harmony, creativity, communication and resonance.

 

 

 

Wait, there's no Jules Verne in the Jules Verne?  D@#n it!  :angry:

I bit my tongue on that one.

I'm with you on the Jules Verne. I got a sample and I'm glad I didn't drop the money for a bottle. The color almost looks like when a ball-point pen is about to die. Very faint and watered down. It flows nice and behaves well but I like my colors to be more intense.

JOD Sepia is also a wonderful color.
