This is the second of the 8 powdered inks that are a massive review.  You can see the rules here at this thread:  Do You Want to be an Ink Tester?  The first ink we tried was Blue Amber. This ink is Black Amber.  Here is a swab.

The  inks are nick-named as follows:

 

Blue Batch A = Blue Amber

Blue Batch B = Blue Balls

Blue Batch C = Blue Cashmere

Blue Batch D = Blue Diamond

 

Black Batch A = Black Amber

Black Batch B = Black Balled

Black Batch C = Black Cat

Black Batch D = Black Diamond

 

The first 25 will absolutely get to be part of the adventure.  I may open it up like I did last time.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Did you receive my sample writing sheet?

If so, was it okay?

Note that this powder should have been a powder but was instead a lump of tar.

I will only send out ten of the samples and the remainder will return to Susema for testing.

Yes, please! Maybe mine will not get kidnapped this time. I gave the mailman a very stern look today. He didn't seem to notice. :rolleyes:

I've spoken with other international testers - the ink is great once mixed. It's only the mixing that is bothersome. So forward we will go.

Why yes, I would like more. The noise in the background is just my conscience asking if I really need it. Answer is the same, "Why yes, I would like more."

Are going to sign up for each ink individually? I'd like to test this if there is room.

Slots are filled UNLESS begging is involved.  I would just say that slots are filled, but I seem to respond well to begging and puppy dog eyes. It's very sad.
