    Noodler's Ink - Hellfire

    * originally posted on my Instagram. Ink Review: Noodler's Ink, Hellfire. Grade: 76.25%. Paper: Norcom Composition. I bought Noodler's Hellfire because I usually stick to black and white media when drawing/writing, and I thought I needed to mix things up a bit. First things first, despite its name, Hellfire is a pink colored ink. It doesn't lean toward red, orange, or even yellow. It is a bright transparent pink color that's meant to be used as a highlighter ink. Not many things make me miss taking notes in college, but as someone who color coded everything, it does make me wish I had Hellfire back then to break up the doldrums of Business Ethics. The first thing that pops into my mind when I look at Hellfire is cotton candy or watermelon. I don't really consider this an ink that I would use to write with every day. Not because of embarrassment, although I did get some looks at work, but because it's a little too hard for me to read on its own. Which, honestly, is not its main function. Like I said, Hellfire is a highlighter ink that does its job well. It pops off the page under normal lighting and will even fluoresce under a black light. Don't expect Blue Ghost levels of fluorescence. Think more of reflective safety vest at night. It drys very quickly and won't bleed through cheap paper. It's not a water fast ink, but you can see that it will put up a fight and resist being washed away. It will feather easily, but let's be honest, this ink should go in a felt tip pen and not in a flexible dip pen. Overall, I love this ink. And if you love choosing your own ink colors and feel like trying out a refillable highlighter pen, then you should definitely check out Noodler's Hellfire.
  2. Noodler's Lightning Blue Highlighter Ink Review Note: this review is also available on my personal reviews site with more pictures and better formatting. If you'd like to take a look, click here. Noodler's Lightning Blue (formerly known as Electric Blue) ink is one of the most peculiar inks I've come across. This is mostly due to the fact that, unlike most fountain pen inks, it is not meant for writing. Rather, it was designed to be a highlighting ink. There are only a few of these specific inks that are designed exclusively for highlighting. Matter of fact, there are really only two common brands that offer them: Pelikan and Noodler's. Pelikan's offering comes both alone and bundled with their M205 Duo BB highlighter fountain pen. However, Pelikan only offers these two colors: yellow and green. On the other hand, Noodler's offers many different highlighter inks, divided into the normal 'Electric Color' series, and the UV-glowing 'Dragon' series. Both of these series have a yellow, a green, an orange, and a pink offering. However, the blue ink, Lightning Blue, is exclusive to the Electric Color line. And for certain, Lighting Blue is a mightily peculiar ink. However, as opposed to some of Noodler's other inks (Ottoman Azure for example—reviewed here), Lightning blue's name actually seems to match its color, that of the shade of blue that lightning leaves behind just as it fades from the sky. In fact, the actual color of the ink is actually nearly indistinguishable from normal highlighter blue. However, that is where the similarities between this ink and plastic highlighters end, as this ink was designed with nibs in mind. However, the real question is, which pen works as a highlighter? Personally, I use a Pilot Parallel 3.8 mm pen, which is not only eyedropper-convertible, but it also is an extremely wide pen which allows for me to highlight the entire contents of a line of text. However, if you rather a narrow highlighter, it also works brilliantly in a normal fountain pen (currently I have it in a Jinhao X250 as well). The ink comes in the standard Noodler's box. And, just like all of the other 3 ounce tinted Noodler's ink bottles, it is filled to the brim (so be very careful when opening). The label of the ink itself has the Noodler's Catfish covering the picture, although he seems to have his tongue, as well as his pupils, colored in with the Lightning Blue so that he matches the ink. The label also features the standard Noodler's WordArt logo, along with the 'Electric Color Series' inscription on the left-hand side denoting its highlighting capabilities. The properties of Lightning Blue, for lack of a better word, are quite interesting. The ink takes between 20 and 50 seconds to dry (depending on paper). Copy paper dries almost instantaneously, however, with a gratuitous amount of bleed through. And as this ink is for highlighting, it does not have much saturation to it, which, personally, I do not mind. However, it does feather, bleed, and ghost quite a bit—not quite at the level of Baystate Blue—but close. Spotted bleed-through and ghosting even occurs on papers like Rhodia and Clairefontaine. However, unlike BSB, it does clean quite easily and does not stain (it's even decently easy to get off of your hands). As such, it is not water resistant in the least, and will be completely lifted from the paper with just one drop. It has mediocre shading (mostly due to its light color), and does happen to flow quite wet. And while some of these properties may sound somewhat discouraging, the ink does its job of highlighting on copy paper well—even though it will go through to the other side of the page. I also tested the ink with some highlighting. And, unfortunately, it did manage to make most inks blur—with the exceptions of Noodler's Black and Baystate Blue. Lamy and Montblanc inks failed the worst here as they became completely illegible. And, unsurprisingly, the 1¢ ballpoint pen fared the best out of all. On copy paper, the ink in the Pilot Parallel worked just fine—highlighting well, without smudging the inkjet text. However, it did manage to bleed through the copy paper all the way. In conclusion, Noodler's Lightning Blue is a picky, picky ink. However, this did not mind me so much given that this ink has a relatively difficult job to accomplish. It needs to be watery and light, and as such, does not have ideal properties. However, it does perform its job brilliantly, and I recommend trying it if you're looking for a highlighting ink. It is available on Goulet Pens for $12.50 and on Amazon for $13.85 with Prime Shipping (this link is not an affiliate link). If you liked this review, please considering subscribing.

    I purchased a refillable highlighter to go with a noodler fountain pen that I use exclusively for grading, it's more fun to point exactly where the student has gone wrong and underlining just doesn't have the same impact. I filled it up and then it was misplaced (probably by one of my children...I'm blaming the baby). Recently I moved and found the pen underneath the liquor cabinet. Now the liquid in the reservoir is still flowing but the nib (?) is completely dried out and won't process the ink anymore. Is there a way to reconsititute it so that it will work again or am I out of luck? Thanks.

  6. Hi, I tutor a teenager on a weekly basis atm and in the process have got to know her a little. She has been drawing Manga for years with fine felt-tipped pens. This week I ordered Zebra G titanium nibs from Japan to do a frankenpen mod. She wasn't aware of this nib as a tool for drawing Manga so I have offered to bring it in one day to play with but it will be some weeks before the nibs arrive. She can't afford Copic markers, but I recalled on here people have talked about their brush pens and highlighters using fp ink. Given my passion for mixing ink colours, I wondered whether I may be able to support her passion in a more cost effective way than Copic markers. So could someone please let me know about brush pens and highlighters using fp inks? I am also interested to know which ink is best for Manga work both fp and dip, as I may be able to modify a spare Jinhao for her or buy her a straight dip pen holder. I also had a somewhat amusing attempt at making ferrotannic ink this week (accidentally extremely acidic) and am wondering whether this may also be a cost-effective medium for black ink, with the right kind of recipe of course! Links to existing threads would be most appreciated, as I don't know where to start on this exploration properly, or even if it is actually a viable idea. With thanks.
  7. These are my first ink reviews so I'd like to hear all suggestions how to improve them. I've got quite some inks in my collection already (most of them are samples but it's a start) and I will review some more in the future. Diamine Kelly Green and the Highlighter ink are a lot closer in reality than it appears on the swabs. Diamine Kelly looks a lot more vibrant on the paper than on the photograph. The color of the highlighter is close to reality, but a monitor can simply not produce that vibrant color perfectly.
  8. Okay, this isn't a pen problem as it is a highlighter problem. I bought the Platinum Preppy Highlighter that you can refill because it's cheaper and more environmentally friendly than having to buy highlighter after highlighter. Unfortunately, the pen only worked for two paragraphs before it decided that it was too good to use the rest of the highlighter ink (Noodler's Golden Pig). Does anyone know what's causing this?
