Another Co-written Comparison and Review or a Co-Razy-View. http://sheismylawyer.com/She_Thinks_In_Ink/2014-Inklings/slides/2014-Ink_530.jpghttp://sheismylawyer.com/She_Thinks_In_Ink/2014-Inklings/slides/2014-Ink_530b.jpg
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.
Diamine Pumpkin is my 'mark-up' ink at work. Having made some comments/corrections in the margin of a drawing four weeks ago, I was surprised to see it had faded and turned into the attached. Although left in the open it wasn't in direct sunlight. For contrast/comparison, the I wrote the last line of text in the third image today before I took the photograph. So, no real point as such; I am posting this for interest though in a way it might be nice if it shaded like this straight out of the pen. Incidentally, this was written with a TWSBI 580 medium nib; I get great flow for this ink in this pen and no gunge deposits around the nib. A very different story with my Lamy Safari however which got a thick coating of orange gunge within a day or so of filling!
