I'd long been looking for a yellowish ink, and had Ambre de Birmanie in my sights, but eventually tried Inti. I'm liking it, but unfortunately cultural acclimatization means the first thing I thought when I got it was... Baby food.

 

It took me a few attempts to get the tone right, it does look a lot like Lgsoltek's review.

Superb. Nice way to compare. One colour, not with a row of other, similar colours, but with three rows of completely dissimilar colours.

Great comparison!  This is a very novel way to show color comparisons.  Well done! 

 

I love most of the Callifolio inks that I have tried.  Inti, though, is not one of my favorites.   I found it to be quite dry.  But, then again, my opinion of the color may have influenced my overall conclusion.

Thank you! It's probably an acquired taste... After my initial semi negative reaction (chicken carrot baby food :sick: ??), it started growing on me, and is currently passing my main test: it makes me want to write more. To my eyes it also gets along with all my other inks. It probably doesn't hurt that I'm using it with my new (to me) m205, which is just stunning :rolleyes: ...

Running commentary as I use it more: it seems decently wet, so it might be a question of the pen and paper? In this case, said m205 with a steel fine nib and so far Rhodia and Clairefontaine pads/notebooks. I'm getting quite a bit of shading.

I think it's good looking baby food.

I swapped Inti onto a Muji aluminium pen, but it was coming out murkier, probably because Myosotis occupied that pen for a while. After disassembly (which is very easy, the feed just pulls out), cleaning and drying, it's coming out in a lighter colour, less like baby food and more yellow, which I quite like; it's still easily legible.

While I'd come to expect wetter pens to turn inks darker, it was the opposite here. I was watching a documentary called River Elegy, which partially uses a metaphor of China and the Yellow River, which was quite à propos.
