Hello all, This is my first post on the FPN. I am looking for an opaque or at least very saturated with little to no shading red ink.
This is mainly for use in a 6mm Pilot Parallel calligraphy pen. I've tried several colors but to no avail.
I've highlighted the problem exemplars in yellow in the images below.
Diamine Red Dragon is my favorite red ink, and it almost gets the job done, but it still looks blotchy in the 6mm PP:
Here is Noodler's Park Red:
I prefer the shade of the Red Dragon, but I need something that doesn't look splotchy when going over the same area with multiple strokes. Also, don't cringe too badly at the letter forms here, they were part of my practice
Any suggestions are very much appreciated. Also, I'm looking for a rich red pigmented ink for dip pens. I'd like something akin to sumi-e, the best I've found in that family is an orangish red though.
