Hi guys-

I have decided to do a water proof test using the inks I have.
Not that I own many inks, but here are the images of before and after.
The inks were submerged under water for 30 seconds.

The inks used were:
- Noodler's Navajo Turquoise
- Diamine Sepia
- Iroshizuku Murasaki-Shikibu
- Rohrer & Klingner Alt-Goldgrun
- Iroshizuku Tsukushi
- Private Reserve Daphne Blue
- Montblanc Burgundy Red
- Diamine Claret
- Montblanc Jazz Blue
- Waterman Inspired Blue

After the test, Tsukushi was the most legible ink.
Navajo Turquoise, Sepia and Murasaki-Shikibu were equally somewhat legible.
Burgundy Red, Claret and Jazz Blue were barely legible.
All other inks were not legible at all.

Hopefully this test is somewhat helpful to you :)

Thank you.
Will this now influence your choice of ink or was the test one of pure curiosity?

I will use the inks that withstood water more at least for planchecking construction documents, but I will still use all of them for normal (mainly note-taking) use.

Thanks for sharing! I can never get enough water resistance tests.

I was surprised by Diamine Sepia. It's so light on paper that I would never have expected it to survive a spill.
