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!
http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ0618.jpg First, I'd like to curse thank fireant for sending me a sample of this wonderful ink. Alas, it is discontinued or I'd buy a bottle today. It likely wouldn't spend much time in my pen, but I'd put it to good use sketching and it is wonderful straight out of the bottle for pointed pen calligraphy. Here's an overworked persimmon. http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ0612.jpg Sailor Hachimitsu and Cigar on Strathmore watercolor paper. http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ0609.jpg Hachimitsu with Zebra "G" nib on Original Crown Mill Pure Cotton paper. Reasonable care was taken to ensure color accuracy, but with an ink this complex and fluorescent, perfection is impossible. If anyone has an unwanted bottle of this ink, I will gladly buy it from you.
