Got Your Goat

De Atramentis Goat ink is part of their Zodiac series. The color is an intense, vivid, almost electric fuschia.

A while back, I had a sample vial of DA Fuschia, which I put in a needlepoint-nibbed Delike New Moon. It, too, showed flat color, with little shading, and it seemed stingy and dry, so it frustrated me a bit.

I like this Zodiac ink much more than the sample of Fuschia, because it's in the more generous Dollar Demonstrator... something to keep in mind for future bright-color inking.

Dry time? Pretty swift. For which this southpaw is grateful. Water 💦 resistance? Nope. See? Though I seldom drop water on my writing, except like now, when it's on purpose.

It's a cheerful color, and makes me smile. :)

The 'chroma' reveals a single color element.

Many thanks to Amberleadavis, Supreme Inky En-Abe-Lawyer , for allowing me to try this ink!

That's a really nice color.  I might look into it for the regular Fuchsia (not my zodiac sign).  I presume that this is *not* Document Fuchsia -- I've had bad luck with the Document line for spreading). Thanks for the review (my wallet says otherwise...  :blush:).

Thank you so much for doing this review.  I also have a sample of this ink and I love it!  And from my limited experience with the ink, it seems to clean up fairly well.  

 

In many ways, I am surprised that our Supreme Inky-En-Abe-Lawyer, amberleadavis, would send samples of this ink out.  It is a beautiful, eye-searing pink - her favorite.  But I am thankful that she did!

I found the Document Fuchsia to be the best behaved of the CMYK+white colors in the document line.  It also has a sort of chalky look when dry, so I'm thinking this is the non-chalky version.  Otherwise, it looks like the same color and quite nice.

 

Thanks for the review, Sailor Kenshin!

Those bright colors are growing on me. Thanks for the review.

 

That clear pink Goat would be good for mixing with the blue black I have sitting in the back of the cupboard. Add some pop.

Glad you are all enjoying!

 

The creator of De Atramentis gave me this ink to share!


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Ruth likes a pink...just not in pen bodies, I guess... :)

Thanks for the review! Bam, that's pure pink!
