http://www.rdwarf.com/users/wwonko/images/fpn/iro/07-Kosumosu-header.jpg Iroshizuku - Kosumosu (Cosmos) - CRV - Group Review - 2015-04 The Iroshizuku Group Review color for April 2015 is Kosumosu ”Cosmos”. It is pink, pinker than the scan above is showing, full of life and springtime. It is named after a pretty wildflower, and if you look at the pictures you'll see why. Please post your reviews and scans of the ink in this thread. If you want to a partner for a Co-Razy View (CRV) of this ink, please write it up and mail it to Lou Erickson. (PM for the address.) If you want to do a Co-Razy View on your own, please do! Other reviews are welcome, too. NOTE: I have a new address as of January! If you have sent me things in the past, please PM for the new address - the old one will stop forwarding eventually. You can look at the full description of the Iroshizuku Group Review to see how this should work and what we’re doing.http://www.rdwarf.com/users/wwonko/images/fpn/iro/07-Kosumosu-product.jpgThanks to Rachel Goulet, who gave permission to me to use their beautiful product photo and swab.More thanks to Amberlea who gives so much of her time to herding these inky kittens. Please PM me with any questions. I was not expecting this ink to be quite this pink, but it's a very attractive color and is definitely springlike.
This arrived today. *glee!* I have three more inks incoming: Edelstein Amethyst, whenever it arrives from Germany, and Diamine Oxblood and Red Dragon (reds, maroons, and dark purples... all right up my alley) from Goulet Pens. And here's my quick and dirty sample sheet. I had a Raphael watercolor brush sitting by that I use for other inks, so I wet it and used it. The first little "kosumosu" comment was my attempt to dip a pen that apparently wasn't clean. Oh well! Tested on Midori MD notebook paper, which seems to hold wets really well. No major bleed-throughs. These inks are really easily watered down when loaded in a brush, it seems, which is why there are multiple tests. Please excuse the messy Japanese--I can write it, but I have no experience with calligraphy, let alone writing with a brush! Thanks for looking and sharing new-stuff glee with me
