Please post your comparison photographs/scans of translucent multi-hue ink that have become recently popular.  The inks I can think of off the top of my head are Sailor x Sailor Nagasawa Kobe #57 Hime Ajisai; Sailor Ink Studio 150, 123, and 162; Troublemaker Inks Petrichor, Kelp Tea, Milky Ocean, and Abalone.  All of these inks separate into distinctly different hues when drying on a page, and it's not because of sheen.  I did not include Kobe #57 Hime Ajisai into this comparison, though I should have.  It's not as complex as the rest, but still has a separation from blue-lavender to vibrant magenta-pink.

 

For all of these inks, daylight makes them look more washed out.  Artificial light--at least good quality with high CRI illumination--brings out more constituent colors.

 

Daylight shade:

(Troublemaker Kelp Tea first written with Pelikan M800 IB nib then dip pen, and Troublemaker Petrichor was first written with Lamy 1.5mm nib and then dip pen)

 

 

Mixed daylight shade with some artificial light:

Wet paper towel "chromatography" shows that Ink Studio 123 and 162 have a different base color dye but probably the same additional dyes.

Forgive me for not responding sooner.  And thank you for this great comparison!  I am playing around with Troublemaker inks these days, but am hoping to get some of the Sailor 123 and 162 in the near future.  Thank you again for posting this!

The photographs are hosted on imgur, Tom--perhaps that is the reason for you not seeing them.  There might be restrictions on viewing imgur-hosted files in China.

Yes, that's unavailable in this area.

 

Thank you for telling me.

You, too?

 

While I'm sorry to know that, now I don't feel so alone.

 

Thanks for telling this.

Nice pictures, thank you for taking the time to do this.

I haven't pulled the trigger yet on Troublemaker inks, but I have Sailor Ink Studio #123 and 162 and I love them oh so much. They react so differently depending on the paper that they are pretty much always a surprise. Really fun inks

There should not be restrictions on Imgur in Germany. Any restrictions could be by individual employer (if viewing from work) or sometimes ISP issues.

I started laughing, thinking that in one sense these are truly “Troublemaker” Inks.

 

I've asked an overseas friend to make a screenshot of your post, to send to me by e-mail.

 

That'll resolve the minor problem.

Our friend and fellow ink lover, 5Cavaliers, very thoughtfully made screenshots of the images for me.

 

Thanks to her kind assistance, I was able to see and enjoy your post.

 

The Troublemaker inks are especially attractive to me.
