I'm reviewing some of my inks. Cult Pens Deep Dark Orange was requested by mmg122 I would call it a dark or burnt orange. It's a very well behaved ink with some shading. I found it flowed smoothly across the page, and had no problems with lubrication in the pen I used. It's a very popular colour because it's a dark orange, and isn't too bright. This ink exhibits no showthrough or bleedthrough on my Tomoe River paper. This paper is slightly thicker than the standard TR paper DDO is a saturated ink and my fingers were stained after washing my hands. The water test on the review form shows this isn't a waterproof ink Bearing in mind the paper I use is smooth, and the nib used at that time was an Italic, this ink took 16-18 secs to dry. It flows through the pen well and lubricates the nib well. I saw no skips or hard starts from the Phileas. It is currently available in Diamine 30ml plastic refill bottles or 80ml glass bottles It's only available from Cult Pens who sell it directly to customers on their web-site.It's a reasonably priced ink
I've received a few new inks this month and have been pleasantly surprised by most of them. The first picture is a photograph, taken using my Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and the second is a scan - I know which one I'll stick to in future! I had a torrid time with my Platinum Plaisir - I ordered a green one with a 0.5 nib. I loved the packaging and the presentation for a £10 pen, but unfortunately it behaved as such - scratchy and dry and horrible. A search of here and other places suggested this was an exception, so I bought myself 3 Preppys - a 0.5 green that would sit in my Plaisir's body if it turned out to be nice, a 0.5 blue-black and a 0.3 yellow. I couldn't be more impressed with all three of them - I know the build quality isn't exactly robust, but they are semi-disposable I suppose. I've bought international standard adapters so that, when their proprietary cartridges run out, I can use any ink I want (within reason). The offending Plaisir nib and feed got chucked away, and the section received a highlighter tip and went in the unused Preppy barrel. It's still a weird colour so I think there's something up with the cartridge too, but it'll get used until it runs out, then I'll use the glorious Preppy highlighter cartridges - they're really bright and I love a cheap refillable highlighter. Anyway, that's probably TL;DR for most of you - here are the pictures: Photo: http://i.imgur.com/nmzxoCn.jpg Scan: http://i.imgur.com/wD939jX.jpg
