The chromatography is practically a mirror image! It appears from the washes that the Sailor inks are close in hue to Apache Sunset. However, this is slightly less so in real life. The Sailor inks are very saturated, approaching fluorescent, while Apache Sunset is slightly more earthy. Care was taken to ensure color accuracy, but in all things, perfection is unattainable. Thanks to migo984 and fireant, who requested reviews of these inks and supplied the samples!
My fellow FPNers, I need some quick advice on my next ink. I want it to be lighter than brown - in color but not intensity. I use a MB toffee brown, sailor red grenade (both dark shades) and I am currently looking for a lighter shade [in red spectrum]. I use Fine to Medium (both Asian & European) nibbed pens + a few italic ones Could short list a few inks: (Want to go for a orangish - amber shade) 1) Pelikan Edelstein Amber 2) Diamine Orange 3) Diamine Amber (Does it lack intensity) 4) Sailor Apricot (A few old pieces might be left with my old shop) 5) J. Herbin Orange Indien I am leaving the iroshizuku inks for now (as shipping will take some time).. I will appreciate your experience with these inks (both bad (first) and good ) Best, Sonik
