Several magenta inks compared, written with Fine and Stub nibs

Some fifteen months have elapsed between writing and scanning this sheet. While I haven't deliberately exposed the sheet to either sunlight or artificial lighting with a view to testing fade resistance, I haven't exactly taken any care to shield or hide the sheet from exposure either; at different times the sheet would have just been sitting in or on top of a pile of paper on my desk, or on a tray or in a box of stuff I put off sorting out.

 

Of the inks on the sheet, it seems Lamy Vibrant Pink has faded the most, relatively speaking; it's particularly noticeable in the “Six.” left of the margin. The colours actually all look significantly lighter/brighter to my eye on the sheet than in the scanned image does on my monitor. I guess it's useful to have the tonal and colour reference patches in the image after all.

 

All the writing was done with two pens only — one with a Fine nib, the other a Stub — and so obviously some of these inks are more apt to spread on the page and result in thicker lines being put down with the same pens and strokes.
