Visconti Purple



Korybas

Recommended Posts

The other day I was just strolling in the downtown Athens market area and decided to pass from the only pen shop we have here, to take a look at the new pens and inks.

In a very prominent place, I saw the new Visconti Rembrandt pen, in a wonderful purple color, that was accompanied by a bottle of Visconti ink in the same color as the pen :yikes: .

Being a lover of dark purple inks, I convinced the owner to sell me the only other bottle he had (the ink had no box) for the fair amount of 9 Euros, and here are my first impressions.

I think that its a nice purple ink, very vibrant and resistant to water (see the water test). I do not know if its an ink made only for the purple Rembrandt pens, but nevertheless I liked it a lot.

Take a look and tell me what you think!

Wow, that shading is incredible! I hope it becomes available without the pen!

Great Shading and I really like the color, but it seems a bit slow to dry???

My Model T is adjusted to be very very wet, because I sometimes flex very much and I need the feed to cope with it. With a pen that is not so wet, I guess that the dry time of the ink will be considerably less...

Very nice ink... I like the glow of the purple colour in the shading.

 

Thanks for the review.

Wow, that's a gorgeous colour. I have no place to use a purple ink but I'd buy that one!

Oh yes, it is! That is what blew my mind away! :puddle:

I do hope this ink will be sold separately and not only together with the Rembrandt pen...

I already sent an e-mail to Visconti about it; lets see what they will reply...

Hi,

 

Many thanks for introducing us to this fantastic ink!

 

The ink seems to be another treat from Visconti, and the vibrancy seems to have much in common with their Blue ink.

 

The shading is quite a surprise, especially on such paper; and as you mention may be attributable to the Ti nib. But even without such a nib, the ink has the potential to deliver shading - it just needs to be encouraged.

 

The water resistance is also welcome.

 

I'm not a huge fan of Purple in general, but this could start something interesting . . .

 

Bye,

That is a gorgeous colour. I have been looking for purples and this may be what I have been seeking. Now I just have to find a bottle to try myself.

Call me crazy, but doesn't this sorta resemble the Diamine Bilberry (at least from the samples posted in the New Colors thread)?

Thanks for the lovely review. I've been looking for the perfect purple and this one has certainly caught my attention.

I do hope it's available without the pen.

Hi,

 

The ink enables the pen purchase, no? :happyberet:

OR

Expensive ink, but they sweeten the deal by including a nice pen.

 

Bye,

Hey guys and girls,

 

I have an update concerning this gorgeous Visconti purple ink.

 

I have contacted Visconti about it and they sent an e-mail back to me today saying that they plan to launch this ink on January 2012. So, thank the Pen God, its not a LE ink and it will not be sold only with the Rembrandt FP. :thumbup:

I just decided on MB Lavender Purple and now a serious contender has entered the arena. Great to know it will become available :wub:
