Pastelize your life PERMANENTLY!!! De Atramentis Document ink WHITE

 

 

P1000072_zpskusppwaq.jpg

 

 

Dear FPN Friends

 

I have published various topics on the BOMBPROOF De Atramentis Document inks.

 

 

document_ink_2_zpst5tfsfyf.jpg

 

These inks are lightfast permanent and because of the CMYK set als very popular with artists and painters around the world like Jane Blundell, Liz Steel and  The Urban Sketschers

 

The above picture is not complete since also a permanent Violet and a Fog Grey ink are availale now.

 

With the CMYK Colours every colour (check photos at the bottom of this  topic you like can be mixed which maks these inks popular for artists.

 

To expand the possibilities De Atramentis now brought a PERMANENT WHITE INK on the market.... Now you mix PASTEL COLOURS too :happyberet:

 

P1000071_zpsbfx8hwy4.jpg

next to the white bottle are the original Docu Blue and Docu black The outer Bottles where the result of mixing 

 

Quick & Dirty Tests

 

Since I a not an expert on colour mixing like Jane Blundell or Liz Steel. I could only perform some Quick & Dirty Mixes. I will ask DR J to send these Grand Ladies of Art  :happyberet: A bottle for testing and hopefully they will soon publish some Colourcharts (see photos at the bottom of this review) and Artworks  :D

Remember these ink mixes of the Fountain Pen-safe ultrasmooth De Atramentis Document Inks

Ink Behaviour

 

Very Wet but ultra quickly drying... and utterly Permanent

 

 

Availability

 

Well the ink is brand new but you might consider asking for them the following excellent Retailes

 

La Couronne Du Comte I guess  Dennis and Rik would even travel to the moon to get it for you (just pay them a million or 2  :))  Well it is safe to say that they do almost everything to satisfy their customers http://www.lacouronneducomte

 

Bankers have Rothshield Ink lovers have the Goulet Pen Company. Rachel and Brian carry theALMOST largest soritment of ink on earth an it's near surroundings  :)  http://www.gouletpens.com

 

(almost Dear Amberlea Davis carries the largest assoritment in the universe but is not a seller  :D

 

Larry Post of Australia is a Great Supplier of Stationary and Artist Equipments. They carry a lot of De Atramentis Inks http://www.larrypost.com.au/

 

The same applies to Singapore based Arters of the utterly friendly Yitpeng and WeetekOng http://arters.com.sg

 

That was it sofar

 Except for one thing

 

P1000074_zpsrqm2fcvd.jpg

 

These are test tubes with the inks I used in this review. A Baby Blue and a Violet.

Are yuu interested of getting one of these 2?

 

Just reply down here and name the tube you are interested in.... In January I will put all names i a bowl and pick the to winning ones.... 

 

They will receive them ASAP together wiht a few sheets of the very nice Walzmühle Reflex Watermark paper :D

 

Well I hope you enjoyed this and Iwill keep you informed on developements

 

Best Wishes 

 

Peter

Thank you for the review but after trying Document inks I must confess I strongly dislike them and adding white to the line-up won't change it.

Why is that?

I know that they are not the best shaders some do some don't

No sheem but thats no shame painters do not fancy this

But they are ultrasmooth drying in under 5 sec (hello lefties)

No feathering when used as meant for in FOUNTAIN pens

I love them and trust them in my pen IG i dont

Will the white ink write on dark papers or allow mixes to write on dark papers as some gel inks do?

Hello stonezebra,

Sorry a bit late.

I have not tested thtat yet. although I believe it is more of a mixing ink I will try so next week and le you know.

On the website Kalliegrafie-laden.de (also run by D-A) there is a interference tinte blau

This writes on black papers white wiht a shing blue sheen... Unfortunately it is not for foutain pens...


But very nice in a dip or glass pen....

Will keep you informed

Is this ink comparable to Noodler's Wotw?  That's the only ink similar to the point of this ink that I can think of.  Your bottle of DeA ink even shows the same type of bubbles that appear on my Wotw bottle if I shake it at all.

Hey Morbus Curiositas,

The samples I have had feathered and bled through Rhodia paper which I have never seen before apart from Baystate Blue. I do like the idea of the white though, and if the behavior is better, I could certainly see myself picking up a bottle.

Abner C. Kemp, in my review mentioned a post above yours, towards the end I have samples of feathering, if it might be of interest to you. Not on Rhodia, though.

too bad to hear so ...

Quite peculiar since I have tested about 10 inks on several papers including rhodia, Clairefontaine G Lalo as weel as cheap paper.

No feathering what so all.

During my Holiday visited Dr J for the first time and discussed this. Since Visvamitra also wrote this..

D-A Inks are designe d for the writng tool used. We tested several Fountain Pens on everal papers... No poblem at all (except the Moleskine)

But then we used dip pens which are scratchy and ver wet glass pens.... Strong feathering....

D-A also produes inks for these writng tools which do no feather nor bleed..

But the FP inks are very wet for smooth writng and might feather whe not used in FP'S or used in very wet FP's

D-A White How about a sample???

I have been working and traveling more than ever in 2015 :-)

 

But I kept DA Document Brown with me and used it whenever I could, to test it in details. I guess you have seen my conclusions.

 

It was a pleasure and I continue to use it. I still have plenty of Brown left, and when it is done, I will gladly buy some more out of my own pocket, I learned to appreciate it and trust it.

 

Happy New Year to you, Dr Jansen and the whole DA team!

Very nice review indeed! I look forward to seeing this come out and to get some to try with some of my inks. I love pastels.

If no one else is interested, I would love to have one of your samples - your choice as to which you would like to part with, should I win.

Thank you again for your great review!

Thanks for the info. I believe when I tested the inks I was using some of my wetter pens. Perhaps in a slightly drier nib I would see less bleed through. There is also the chance that perhaps I got a bad sample, this has happened a few times in the past. I'll definitely be looking for a sample of D-A White. It looks like an ideal ink for mixing. 

 

I'll throw my name in the hat for the baby blue vial.  :)
