I use this exclusively in my green Pelikan 200. Beautiful color.

 

Does it ever dry?  I love it, but on TR paper it stays wet forever.


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

I have no problem, but I use mainly HP Premium Laser paper I've printed with my own planning page design in an Arc (similar to Circa or Atoma) notebook. I've also had no problems on cotton paper. Maybe I got lucky with my bottle.

Mine is old and super saturated so that may be part of the issue. Thank you for sharing!

In some pens, for me, a little dilution improves things.  Lovely color.  I write on relatively inexpensive and dry papers so I have no issues with drying time.

I haven't used the Diamine so I don't know.

I've always found this to be a slow-drying, smearing-prone ink. I find this to be a tendency with PR inks in general.
