A lot better the white of the paper is white now.


Although the yellow still has this orange Hue (please compare with the scan)





This is he print screen of lightroom. My laptop (asus) can show 100% RGB and the monitor is calibrated


Have a look at the histogram… Peak on the left and peak on the right ( I guess this has to do with the high contrast between Black and White


BTW Used non direct light and calibrated my camera with a grey card


It's tough. Digital cameras and how they process colour is a lengthy subject. How we represent reflected light (ie light bouncing back off the inks on the page) with transmitted light (what we see from a monitor) is a tricky process.
I remember teams of people in print houses trying to replicate Fuji Velvia's super saturated colours in a colour print and

Trying to show all the colours at once, as you have, is really difficult 
as sensors / software / conversions are more sensitive to some colours than others.

I always adjust the photo of my swatches with my swatch in front of me - and I only do one ink at a time. :blush:

I commend you for your achievements and your review is an EXCELLENT starting point for anyone looking to buy the DA Document inks B)

Wowsers, what an epic review! Thank you!


I haven't tried any De Atramentis inks yet but looks like I'll need to in the near future. Though I have more ink than I could ever use, I'm always on the hunt for great water resistant/proof inks (I have most of Noodler's bulletproof inks).

Thank you, Peter, for this outstanding review!  Excellent work!  Thank you for taking all that time to do this.


I am embarrassed to say that I just now saw this review, although I have been considering obtaining some document inks.  I have been using dye based inks mostly, but may be needing to switch to more permanent inks in the near future. 


Thank you again!  You are the best!
