From the album: Shades of colourSome fifteen months have elapsed between writing and scanning this sheet. While I haven't deliberately exposed the sheet to either sunlight or artificial lighting with a view to testing fade resistance, I haven't exactly taken any care to shield or hide the sheet from exposure either; at different times the sheet would have just been sitting in or on top of a pile of paper on my desk, or on a tray or in a box of stuff I put off sorting out. Of the inks on the sheet, it seems Lamy Vibrant Pink has faded the most, relatively speaking; it's particularly noticeable in the “Six.” left of the margin. The colours actually all look significantly lighter/brighter to my eye on the sheet than in the scanned image does on my monitor. I guess it's useful to have the tonal and colour reference patches in the image after all. All the writing was done with two pens only — one with a Fine nib, the other a Stub — and so obviously some of these inks are more apt to spread on the page and result in thicker lines being put down with the same pens and strokes.

Luma posted a topic in Co-Razy-ViewsI've been digging through the 'Ink Review' threads and forums and I have not been able to find a comparison of the Rohrer and Klingner purples. Would preferrably like to see the difference between Scabiosa and Alt-Bordeux but figured it wouldn't hurt to include the Solferino and Magenta. If anyone has writing or swab samples for these inks, would you mind posting a photo? Thanks.
Hello everybody, today I decided to add 2 more purples to my R&K palette (already owning Alt-Bordeaux, Scabiosa, Sepia and Alt Goldgrun). I decided to go for Cassia and one more, but I really can't make up my mind when it comes to the difference between Solferino and Magenta. From what I've seen, there are more reviews for Solferino than for Magenta, which makes me think it's generally better liked. Does anyone have both? How do they compare in terms of behavior (staining - if any- , ease of cleaning, bleed/show through on regular, uncoated paper)? Thank you!
