  1. I have bought several blue inks hoping that they were as bright as they seemed to appear. However, the results have so far been disappointing. Krisha's inks seem to be reasonably priced with a lot of interesting colours. I want advice about Krishna's blue inks from the users. If I had to pick 3 blue inks, which ones would you recommend? They should be as bright as posssible with relatively short drying times, decent lubrication and minimal feathering.
  2. I've just completed my simple review of the latest twelve new inks in the Shimmer range, from Diamine. Six with gold particles and six with silver. Although I don't like 'particle' inks, per se, this new release is actually superb. Let's be honest though; it's purely my opinion and I don't really think that any judgement should be made before trying them out for yourselves. As with any ink/pen/paper combination. But, we should all know and respect that... There are a dozen new colours as I mentioned and I will just post a simple scan of my test. I've recently had to get a new phone but it has a rather better camera than my last one, so pictures, rather than scans, will follow tomorrow. However I will say, that the particular distribution shows up with this batch, better than the first one, even with a flat-bed scan, so I think there has been a real improvement. I decided to use the Sailor Sapporo B nib for the tests, as before, and have to say that there was NO problem in cleaning out the pen between inks. After each fill I used the converter to rinse out the nib section eight times, under a running tap - not TOO much due to the water meter! - and even before the end of that cycle, there wasn't a hint of any metallic particles. I then just checked the converter, and gave it a flush. Then I used a rubber bulb to flush through the nib and section. Only after all twelve inks, did I finally take the section apart and there wasn't a hint of metallic or dye residue at all. I'm impressed. So now to the colours. All I have to add to my comments, is that I may have made different notes to the writing of a particular ink. The differences are purely due to distractions - there are no differences with any of these colours. They all perform very well with the pen and paper I used for the tests. First, the gold particle inks. <img src='https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/uploads/imgs/fpn_1475100387__golden_oasisshimmer_2_gold_0006.jpg' alt='Golden Oasisshimmer 2 gold_0006.jpg' /> And now the silver particles! I will post pictures of some of these, to try to show the particles but, in the meantime; enjoy!

    White Ink On Black Paper

    I have some black paper, and would like to write out some favourite poems, in white.....I know that it's a no no for fountain pens, but I have a couple of dip pens.... Any suggestions for the whitest white ink on black paper? Alex PS I have heard of Noodlers White Whale, but am in UK
  4. I was wondering if there are any fun, lively looking ink that you guys would suggest? Not necessarily bright, I want to be able to read it easily, I just dont want it to be a bore to look at. Aside from that my only preferences are no iron gall, it has to perform well on most paper (im a student, I tend to use some bad paper at times), waterproof isn't a big deal but I guess it's a plus, and it has to be easy to clean (this is the most important). So what is your favorite lively ink? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

    Organics Studio Neon

    Hold onto your retinas. This is a bright one. The good thing is it's saturated enough to not seem just light or be hard to read. Some oranges are bright colors, but just light and watery. This is the ink to use for writing warning notes. Or to write notes to your kids you don't want them to ignore.

    Diamine Jade Green

    Please reduce the brightness of your monitor before looking at the review scan This is another green for those who like them bright and in your face. Lovely colour in a broad nib though it can be a little hard to control the shading as you can see. USAGE DAILY WRITER: No BUSINESS USE: Very unlikely ILLUSTRATIONS: Maybe for headlines and such? NOTES: Unlikely - it is too pale to be easy to read. PERSONAL: No, except for special effects. LOVE LETTERS: No. PERFORMANCE (All are scored 0-4) FEATHERING: 4/4 - not even the 6 mm Pilot Parallel on inkjet paper feathers. BLEEDTHROUGH: 3/4 - very good on all papers SHADING: 4/4 - possibly too much for some SHEEN: 0/4 - none seen (but I am not good at sheen ) WATERPROOF: 0/4 - obliterated; please drink water responsibly around this ink FADING: 3/4 - slight colour change after 3 days in window REVIEW Lamy Safari 1.1 mm on Rhodia with Pilot Parallel 6.0 mm for heading WRITING SAMPLES Lamy Fine, Medium, and 1.1 mm on various papers; pen changes marked with arrows where they happen within a line.
