Organics Studio Accident Blue (Pigmented)

And yet another review while I'm going. Forgive me posting all these at once, but I've been sitting on a stack of these for a couple weeks and finally had the time to scan them in this weekend.

 

This is another Organics Studio ink. And another one that has almost no information up yet. No reviews and no sample pictures on the sites that are selling them. Also another one I'd been excited about, since this one is a pigment based ink. Should make it more permanent. Water resistant and fade resistant.

 

It's a nice vibrant color with nice shading. It flows wetter than I thought, and dries quick enough. As you can see the water resistance is very high. I'd call it waterproof. As for fade resistance, we'll have to see what happens during the Fade Olympics, since I know Tyler sent a bunch of samples of ink to be tested. But my guess is this one'll do well.

 

Also to note, I was impressed how easily this one cleaned up. I know you need to take extra care with pigment based inks to get them all out, but I have some conventional inks that are harder to clean than this one.

 

Overall very nice and nothing but good things to say on this one.

 

Edit: note on cleaning

Indeed. It's got a dark turquoise sort of shading to it. A lot darker than the other turquoise inks I have and tend to pick. It shades a lot up to a medium sort of blue. I really like turquoise inks and had long wished for them to be be water resistant. But Lamy Turquoise, Sheaffer, even Noodlers... all wash away. This one is downright permanent.

 

I think all said and done, this is my favorite ink from the Organics Studio brand.

My accident was ordering this ink. What a complete mess. There is hardly any pigment to adhere to the paper. I have to assume a Quality Assure issue that probably affected a whole batch of ink.

 

I used an Speedball B-5 1/2 nib on a sheet of Rhodia dotpad. The only thing that showed up was the initial few letters and the swabs. Forgive the bad scan. It doesn't do justice to the "injustice" of this ink. But it illustrates the problem. Not enough blue in the ink to even get picked up in a scan.

 

Retracting my negative comment. See post below.

Have to admit, I haven't tried it with a dip nib. The ink I have works just fine in my fountain pens, as you can see in the scan above. I wouldn't know if that could be the difference, or if it's a batch thing, or something else entirely. Have you tried it in a fountain pen?

Initially, I scoffed when I read this. But the truth was, I hadn't. I used a dip pen to quickly test the four inks I got today without have to load and flush a fountain pen. So when I got home I inked my Parker Vector with Accident Blue and to my amazement, it wrote fine. Better than fine. Why it didn't work in a dip pen, I don't know, but I am relieved to have it work in the a fountain pen, as it was probably designed for.

These pigment inks are on the thin flowing side. Very wet, but not very viscous.

I remember reading something on one of Pharmacist's posts in the Inky Recipes forum that traditional iron gall inks for dip pens had thickeners to help hold onto the dip nib. And that fountain pen galls removed these to help them flow better in the pen. I'd hazard a guess it's something to do with that.

Pigmented inks have to be very free flowing to prevent initial clotting. Once a clot forms, it leads to pigment build up and coagulation which can be a NIGHTMARE to clean out. So these inks aren't prone to sticking to surfaces (you'll notice it almost glides around the bottle if you invert it also :) ).

 

Glad you tested it in a fountain pen and not a dip pen - we don't add binders like some calligraphy inks (shellac, commonly used) so the inks aren't particularly good for dip pens. Dip pen inks usually are much thicker than fountain pen inks so that they write for longer without having to redip.

Thanks for the clarity Tyler, that makes sense. The behavior of the ink on the paper is unique as the pigments seem to try and find each other as it dries. Fun to watch.

I think it is a great ink! One of my favorites of the OS line up.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Agree wholeheartedly. And your wonderful scans really help show off the color. I need to calibrate my scanner.

Probably doesn't matter anymore because Organics Studio is closed, but while it is easy to clean out while wet, it is near impossible to clean if it is dried on a pen. Learned the hard way.

Unfortunately that is going to be true of all pigmented inks. You need to have better cleaning and maintenance regimen than normal inks.

 

You may want to pick up an ultrasonic cleaner. That'll help with iron galls, pigments, and other toughies

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav
