Oh Cyber6, SO generous, as always, thank you however . . . I never thought I'd say this but please don't  :( . I'm so far behind with sketches and thank yous and CRVs that I'm feeling a little overwhelmed.

Thank you for a great overview of these inks - I had never heard of them before. Looks like a good time to order a few of them... decisions... decisions... which ones to choose? The Tomoe River samples look great. Unfortunately, this seems hard to find in Europe, and shipping from the States is prohibitively expensive. Have to start googling to find a comparable alternative.

Shipping is from AUSTRALIA and the price is capped to $20AU for international shipping for up to 7 bottles.  That is approx $13 euro for 7 bottles. - not too shabby.   ;)

This eBay seller is based in Austria so may be a better option for you. The price is very good too.

Their multiple pack listings are even better value.

Jade is pretty but I'm not at all keen on Royal Red or Lime Green.

 

 

Migo, can you post a sample writing of Royal Red?...  I want to place an order before the May 7 deadline, and I am still deciding.

You have the Fire Engine Red, and the Burgundy, as have I, and looking at the samples on his eBay page, the Royal Red is the darkest of the three. But then, the picture of twenty samples shows it in between Fire Eng. Red and Burgundy.

Does that help? Probably not...

Here's a quick scribbled sample, on quite absorbent paper. It's a nondescript & rather wishy-washy red. It looks no better on Tomoe. Hope this helps a bit.....

Thanks...  It helps.  This line needs a very saturated DARK red. :wub: :wub:

I put my order in for 14 inks.  I had real trouble narrowing it down.  In the end I got basically every blue except the Australian sky, and then for non blues I got the khaki, the spearmint, and I gave a shot to the grape on evergreen as well.   :)

 

Thanks for the pictures, Claudia!
