I already have a review of this ink: http://www.fountainp...-gall-mandarin/
But turns out that something's wrong with my sample. Konrad and Agnieszka read my comparison of "gold" inks and noticed the mistake. They kindly sent me a correct sample (along with several other inky surprises ).
So this is the correct version of this ink. It writes down as an orange and dries to this colour.
I like both versions.
The water test was taken less than 2 hours later. I suppose it'd be much more water resistant if I took the test later.
