    Noodler's Park Red

    Pinkish Red ink from Noodler's, made in honour of Park Sang Hak, a North Korean defector now living in South Korea who sends propaganda balloons back to the North. You can watch more about it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMQFp9qBCHU&feature=youtu.be The info by Mr. Tardiff is not 100% accurate. I wish I could like this ink. But I don鈥檛. It鈥檚 one of those smear inks. I think the best thing is to send this in one of Mr. Park鈥檚 balloons over to North Korea. 馃槢 The only way I could tame this ink was with Peter Pauper Press notebooks with their thick, absorbent paper. If you're looking for waterproof bright red, this not one of them. As of now, Noodler's Fox Red/ Esenin and De Atramentis Document/ Artist Red are the best behaved waterproof inks I know of. Let's start with the watermelon coloured chroma: Writing samples: As you can see I had a bit of smudge disaster all over the place: It didn't like Hammermill as you can see: Photo: Comparison: Water test: I filled an eyedropper with water, and this was the effect. and per usual an art work: Cat & mouse Gangnam style, the grey is De Atramentis Document Urban Grey.... Note how the application of a wet brush obliterates the pink lines and leaves a greyish line. Hope it brings a smile 路 Pens used: Pilot Kakuno Ef, Kaweco(EF/F/M/B/Stub 1.9), Osmioroid Copperplate 路 What I liked: Writing on thick absorbent paper, history lesson, and drawing 路 What I did not like: Long dry times, not waterproof and smudges all over the place. 路 Who might like this ink: K-Pop/ K-drama fans.... 路 Shading: I doubt it. 路 Ghosting: Yes, on cheap thin paper 路 Bleed through: Same as above 路 Flow Rate: Wet 路 Lubrication: Good from fine above 路 Nib Dry-out: No. 路 Start-up: No. 路 Saturation: Yes. 路 Shading Potential: Doubt it. 路 Sheen: No. 路 Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: No 路 Nib Creep / 鈥淐rud鈥: No. 路 Staining (pen): No. 路 Clogging: No. 路 Cleaning: Kaweco was easy, Osmiroid and Kakuno were slightly more difficult. I suspect if this ink stay a long time in the pen, the pink element might be difficult to clean. 路 Water resistance: It has some water resistance with a minor spill, but don't count on it. 路 Availability: 3 oz /90 ml bottles. Please don't hesitate to share your experience, writing samples or any other comments. The more the merrier
  2. Hello all, This is my first post on the FPN. I am looking for an opaque or at least very saturated with little to no shading red ink. This is mainly for use in a 6mm Pilot Parallel calligraphy pen. I've tried several colors but to no avail. I've highlighted the problem exemplars in yellow in the images below. Diamine Red Dragon is my favorite red ink, and it almost gets the job done, but it still looks blotchy in the 6mm PP: Here is Noodler's Park Red: I prefer the shade of the Red Dragon, but I need something that doesn't look splotchy when going over the same area with multiple strokes. Also, don't cringe too badly at the letter forms here, they were part of my practice . Any suggestions are very much appreciated. Also, I'm looking for a rich red pigmented ink for dip pens. I'd like something akin to sumi-e, the best I've found in that family is an orangish red though.

    Ink Review: Noodlers Park Red

    This is a mostly hand-written review of the new Noodlers Park Red. The images are iPhone photos. My scans came out "too electric" where the red simply appeared much brighter than it was in reality. So I did not include them. "Perhaps this will become the infamous Park Red with the drawing of North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un firing fountain pens at the balloons of Park Sang Hak. While the supreme leader may not be very well behaved, the ink certainly is. It is not like Diamine's Oxblood, it is a cleaner red, but not a bright red. It sits well on the page. For me this is a good quality. Being able to read a full page of written text without burning out your eyeballs is important. Dries well on the inkjet paper. This is a red that I like. My usual colors are blues and blacks and purples. I don't know if it would meet the needs of those making corrections. My guess is it would show up well enough esp. with a medium or broad nib. If you like your reds searingly hot, this ink isn't it. But if you prefer them to be more subdued yet strongly red, you will probably like this ink. I don't know how much of this ink was produced or how long it will be available.
