This arrived today. *glee!*
I have three more inks incoming: Edelstein Amethyst, whenever it arrives from Germany, and Diamine Oxblood and Red Dragon (reds, maroons, and dark purples... all right up my alley) from Goulet Pens.
And here's my quick and dirty sample sheet. I had a Raphael watercolor brush sitting by that I use for other inks, so I wet it and used it. The first little "kosumosu" comment was my attempt to dip a pen that apparently wasn't clean. Oh well!
Tested on Midori MD notebook paper, which seems to hold wets really well. No major bleed-throughs.
These inks are really easily watered down when loaded in a brush, it seems, which is why there are multiple tests. Please excuse the messy Japanese--I can write it, but I have no experience with calligraphy, let alone writing with a brush!
Thanks for looking and sharing new-stuff glee with me
