  1. Brownish red inks as I try to find the right one for a particular pen. Not so scientific, so feel free to move this thread if another forum is more appropriate. N.B. I think the Hopjesbruin and the Cognac are doppelgängers. I'm leaning towards one of the two of the inks tested here, though I do like the Oster.
  2. @amberleadavisdid some reds, I added some browns, and some additional pages:
  3. Does anyone know of an ink that would resemble most closely the ink that was used on the Marauder's Map in the Harry Potter movie? I really liked the color but there are so many different reds and browns out there. I'm trying to find an ink that would fit more closely to the color used on the map.

    Pilot Iroshizuku - Three Browns

    http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ6445.jpg http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ6446.jpg Iroshizuku's lineup of brown inks is a short list of two, or three if we include the golden wheat color, Ina-ho. Top is Rhodia Dotpad. Bottoms is Original Crown Mill Pure Cotton. These three inks are excellent, interesting colors and very well-behaved. While not exactly unique, they are as good or better than their doppelgangers among other brands. Tsukushi is very similar to Faber-Castell's Hazelnut Brown and J. Herbin's Café des Îles, while Yama-guri is a darker, more saturated R&K Sepia or J. Herbin Cacao du Brésil. I don't have enough experience with colors like Ina-ho to draw comparisons. Here's a breakdown: Tsukushi - burgundy undertone Hazelnut Brown - lavender undertone Café des Îles - no undertone (single dye ink) Yama-guri - burgundy undertone R&K Sepia - neutral/brown undertone Cacao du Brésil - lavender undertone While I won't be dropping Cacao du Brésil, I will be adding Yama-guri to my ink drawer. It is an incredibly organic looking ink, reminiscent of writing with a charred stick. It has an early man on cave wall feel. And, these inks dip very well on the right paper.
  5. I laid down my colors and here is what came out...I thought it may be useful for other people as well when shopping for different colors. I try to adjust color tones as best as I can on Photoshop. But since what shows up on your screen may be very different due to your color settings, try to calibrate your monitor/screen first...the empty lines on the pics will be filled with my lastly ordered inks when they arrive. My favorite brands are Diamine & Pilot. Sometimes pilot inks are a little bit dry though. Favorite colors are marked with (F)...Due to upload limitations other colors will be posted on the other posts...

  6. Unfortunately I do not have very many brown [1] inks. However, I hope this little contribution will still be valuable to some of you. For those of you who can't easily get the UK exclusive Deep Dark Brown ink: you may find Diamine Macassar a reasonable substitute. Lamy Safai medium nib on cartridge paper (same paper and pen as the All Diamine Inks Compared post): [1] I bulk-buy inks. How come I don't have many browns!?
