The harrowing adventures of ink journal scanning continue. This time, we find our intrepid (obsessive) character considering the chromatic characteristics of crimson, cardinal, claret, cherry and carmine. 
 
Previously: Black, and Blue/Teal
 
What's all this on the page? Why are some pages a little different? Why are some of the pangrams not pangrammatic at all?  My obsessive processes, detailed:

I hope these are helpful to those of you looking for red inks.

Rachmaninoff looks lost :P

 

Very nice variety of red. With so many options, one can't help but be tempted to challenge a teacher's instruction not to use red in your work, and just try to pick a unique enough shade...

 

Alternatively, if you were a teacher grading exams, which of these would you use? What would be the most traumatic shade of red to highlight mistakes with? Diamine Oxblood would fit that latter theme... but I think Diamine Poppy Red looks the most like a classic grading red, bright and alarming.

Rachmaninoff is one of the few from this group that didn't scan well. It looks a lot more purple in this scan than it does in real life. Goulet's swab is closer, but still more purple than the actual color itself. It is exactly the same color as a new bottle of Pepto Bismol, if you're familiar with that stuff.

 

Diamine Poppy, Wild Strawberry, Sheaffer Skrip Red, and PW Akkerman's #21 are all very vibrant, fairly "true" reds. I was always a bit skeptical of people's consistent recommendation of Sheaffer's Skrip, but damned if it isn't just a fantastically performing, bright, true red. If I didn't want to add a real Akkerman bottle to my collection, Skrip Red is the "grading red" I would have purchased.

Great job, thanks.

I still think Momiji is very pink, and that there's no real red in the Iroshizuku line.

Some say Akkermans are just rebottled Diamines. I suspect the China Town Red might have been Poppy Red. But gosh that bottle is nice!

Thank you! And I agree--Mom-iji is definitely on the pinker side. But I do love its golden sheen.

 

With Diamine's Poppy next to Akkerman's #21, it wouldn't surprise me that they are the very same ink. Tone, shading, waterproofness, and no-sheen are all identical. The Akkerman feathered a bit more, but not outside of normal variation from page to page. 

 

As you said, the Akkerman bottle is what put me over the top. If you're not a bottle collector, Skrip or Poppy are very similar vibrant reds.

Sheaffer Skrip was a pleasant surprise. I also like red ink. My latest favorite is Mont Blanc Corn Poppy Red.

Great review! You saved me a bottle of Caran d'Ache Divine Pink, although Infra Red doesn't get of from the hook.

I adore reds in all their variations and glory.  I have many of the ones demonstrated here, and in addition, I have a few others that might be helpful:

K- So, do you think the Wild Strawberry and China Town Red are the same ink?

My preferred grading inks are Diamine Matador and Noodler's American Eel Red Rattler.  Quink Red is good too.  That Skrip looks decent, so I may have to invest.  Too many times I've bought a red ink and found it to actually be pink or orange.

I think Diamine's Poppy is closer to Akkerman 21 than Wild Strawberry. WS is ever so slightly more orange than Poppy or #21. But, yeah, it wouldn't surprise me to find that Poppy and #21 come from the same vat at Diamine. 

 

Also, we'd love to see these on the Red Swab thread.

 

I can do that!

On my pages, Matador is just slightly more maroon than Skrip--but it's not hugely noticeable. Both are eye-catching reds :)
