I would like to order 3 bottles and two manuscript brown through the other link. Can you give another water test? I saw the other test you did. It seemed like black remained. Is this ink the same type as what pendemonium calls Near-Bulletproof?

Yes, you can order the other inks as well. All are available.

What kind of other water test? I don't know how it showed up on the monitor, but in person it looks to me like a dark purple that remained, kind of like the Tulipe Noire. Or do you mean for the Manuscript Brown? That ink is bulletproof. The other two are standard inks and if they have any water resistance, it's a bonus.

Terrific news, Elaine. I've been anxiously awaiting the blue so I could have you send all together the Manuscript Brown and the Tulipe Noire you're holding for me. When can we officially order the blue (I want two bottles) and how do I go about getting an invoice for all 3 colors?
Many thanks!

I am hoping someone will soon have the opportunity to compare this ink to Noodler's Midnight Blue, to see whether it is actually discernibly different smile.gif

I really want to give some applause to both Elaine and NeoTiger for their work on this. (I'll be ordering mine tomorrow; I need to decide how many bottles first.)

I have to ask a really stupid question that I don't think has been answered...

Is this a "bulletproof" or permanent ink?

I think I found my answer on the ordering page... it looks like the brown is the only one that is permanent.

How delicious. Thanks so much for all the work behind the scenes that none of us will ever fully know about in bringing these three custom inks to our membership! 3 bottles ordered just now!
With the new FPN rules, now I REALLY don't know what to put in my signature.
