Here's some additional ink scans of inks I've received since I last did a batch of scans. Some of these are just samples, and some I have bottles of. As always, they can be found tagged with "inkscans" on my Flickr page.

These aren't calibrated scans, but I'm about to send them off to someone who can calibrate them.

Huh. I had made sure to shake them all, but the ink before it was bluer, so I'd expect any error to be on the bluer side rather than yellower.

oh dear, i just suffered from "Your MONITOR May Vary" for the first time! I'm so sorry. It looks fine today on my laptop screen (though it looks like it wrote a little dry), but when I wrote that yesterday, I was at home and looking at it on a CRT. Forgive me for opening my mouth so soon and hastily!!

And I further back up that the other colors I gave (Djinn, Empire, Intense, SM Burg, Goldfinch, Verdun) all look incredibly accurate. Same goes for the Stip "Blue", Reed Green, and Tsuki Yo that I have samples of.

Deidre, thanks for these scans. You've done a few of these in the past, if memory serves. I just gotta ask: how many bottles of ink do you have at home? I'd love to have such variety thumbup.gif

Cool, you've scanned the Standardgraphs! It is great to see them in relation to other brands. I find the Reed Green to be unique compared anything else I have seen by other brands. And it flows well in all my pens. The Forget Me Not blue I find to be similar to Herbin Bleu Myosotis, but more vibrant.

This pretty well covers it, though I've sold some and bought some since then:

These reviews are great and I've tried an ink or two that come from the samples posted. Just curious does anyone use a note book or journal? I keep a journal that I just use for my own ink reviews. I apply a sample with a cotton swab, and a written sample of the ink recording the pen used etc. I don't have too many as I use cartridges as much as I use bottled. happyberet.gif

I don't really do ink reviews. I just play and post a pic.

It's not that I wouldn't do an ink review, I just feel like I haven't really figured out all my biases enough to write one well.

Thanks for the photos, Deirdre. It's very interesting to see the unusual inks like Noodler's Singapore series etc. Does Blaze Orange shade like Noodler's Apache Sunset? I still have 80% full bottle of Apache Sunset, but just curious smile.gif

I've never tried Apache Sunset, so I don't know for sure. There is some shading, but not a lot. My recollection from seeing other things in Apache Sunset is that that's got remarkable shading.

Yes, Apache Sunset does show great shading. If Diamine does not much, I guess I don't have to get another orange ink for now biggrin.gif Thanks, Deirdre.
