A request was made for a quick side by side comparison of two Bung Box (Sailor) inks: Tears of a Clown and Sweet Potato Purple. I apologize for the distracting line, I did the swabs and splatters separately and taped them on. Notes: Tears of a Clown was inked in a standard med. TWSBI-Eco. There are no modifications on the nib. The Sweet Potato Purple was inked into a Shaeffer Javelin, modified with a magical Art Nib's mod,, and is a stub and somewhat flexy. Ink Characteristics: Both were very wet inks, richly saturated, well lubricated so even a stiff nib like the Eco's danced across the page. The small square in the middle are the two inks, in a single series of passes, abutting. Neither ink feathered, bled through. Both dried (on Tomoe) in the 15-18 second range. Paper: Tomoe River White Sheen: Two pictures taken on an iPhone. The sheen is identical to me, highest key is a lime yellow, middle key of the sheen is Chartreuse, the lowest key falls to olive. Amazing stuff.

But the sheen is the same. Hope you find this helpful.
