From the album: Odds and ends150 opened bottles of inks now have no place in my (wife's work-from-home) desk's main storage space, which is absolutely chockers, so most of these now live inside clear, stackable Daiso plastic storage boxes under the spare bed in the same room. Then there are also the 25 Diamine Inkvent Red Edition inks, although technically I can squeeze this into one of the desk's shallow drawers:

I love reading everyone's ink reviews, so I thought I would try making one too. The pens used are the Noodler's Ahab and a Muji Fine nib pen.The paper is Hilroy recycled lined - aka, cheapest stuff at Amazon.The spelling is terrible, but until they invent a pen with a spellchecker that can read dyslexic, we are just going to have to make the best of it. I'm heavily dependent on electronic aid to communicate well in writing, but I'm improving. General thoughts about this ink: The colour is lovely and dark. A rich purple-black-blue to it. It's a soothing colour for long writing sessions.It performs well on a variety of cheap papers. Very little feathering even on the stuff they use at work.The flow is just about perfect. It certainly doesn't gush out of the pen, but it comes out when I ask it and doesn't skip a beat.Dry time is moderateIt's very-not water resistant. If I get it wet enough, the writing disappears. For this reason, I'm not sure I'll be using this ink much in the future.
Anyone heard of Ferris Wheel Press inks? (Or pens, for that matter?) There was a Kickstarter for their inks a while back that would likely be going out to backers shortly, and you can apparently pre-order via their IndieGoGo campaign. I'd only just heard of it yesterday and I must admit that I was instantly smitten with, of all things, the bottle the ink comes in In spite of the "most magical FP ink" billing, the colors aren't particularly grabbing my attention, but that's possibly just my monitor not doing it justice, and the only review I could find was this at Gourmet Pens. Apart from a color swatch of all three ink colors and more pictures of the pretty bottles, there isn't a lot more non-press information to go on, so I was hoping perhaps someone here might have experience with or otherwise be in the know. Trying really hard not to buy one just for the bottle, because that would be a kinda pricey bottle if I ended up not liking the ink...
