I really like this ink. So much so I just ordered more along with Skull and Roses. There are three sources in Germany I've found. However, I was frustrated trying to navigate their German sites. The solution was to go through Amazon. Same price.

But, I do have a question. Chrissy, you said no evidence of nib drying. I have it in two wet pens, Visconti HS Lava and Pelikan M800. Both dried out to the point of no flow several times yesterday; even with the cap on. I've never had that problem with either pen, regardless of ink. Still love the ink.


How long did it take for shipping from Germany to Kentucky? Just wondering.


All the Best.

I understand that it is the sheen that smears.  Yet, they are the only ones of the sheening inks I own that are this bad.
Rhodia and Clairefontaine paper make the "problem" worse, as they are not very porous.

Lay down enough ink to sheen, and it will smear just from rubbing with a finger, on which there are microscopic beads of sweat/moisture on the skin.


The paper I used for the card stock is Arttec Como 210gm drawing paper, and so should not have a problem with ink taking hold. The November Rain splats were done four days ago, and the other others about three weeks ago.
As always:  1. Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment.  2. I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong. My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published.  3. I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.
