Golden Mind is one of the White Box inks, and is available from Anderson Pens in a very limited quantity. In case you're on the fence, here is a quick look.

In summary, I really like the color. If you like dryish ink, take a look. It doesn't feel wet enough for me, but I prefer wet pens and wet inks. It's a dead ringer for Diamine Marigold, and has zero water resistance. It washes as a uniform color, so might be useful for a wash.

Sorry for the photos. I didn't want to wait until I got my new scanner, in case anyone was on the fence.

Text of review:
This is Organics Studio da Vinci's Golden Mind in a broad wet Jowo #6 (Scr. Pens) on white Tomoe River paper. It feels pretty dry, or maybe just not super lubricated. I don't have a lot of golden-orange inks, but I will compare with Diamine Marigold, my favorite ink in this shade.

Golden Mind is very legible, and while bright and cheerful, not painful to read. I have only done cursory testing, but haven't encountered any clogging issues.

I really do love the color, but not sure I have room for another golden ink. (It does have a consistent wash.)

The water drips show more residue than I see. I don't think this is resistant at all.

Light is gone here, but the mini-review is written. I will try to make it happen tomorrow. It is interesting; I don't have anything like it. I am waiting for sunlight before looking for the shimmer.

I like the combo of the ink with that PEN - a perfect complEment.


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