Problems With Mb Toffee Brown Ink



Recommended Posts

DylanKeefe

Hey guys, quick question! I recently purchased a bottle of Mont Blanc Toffee Brown ink, and the color is amazing. However...the ink starts out nice and brown, and dries an almost greenish, moldy color. I've look around and I haven't seen anyone with the same problems as I have had. There is also some green residue inside the cap and around the glass rim, which has me thinking, again, about mold. Has anyone else experienced the same thing? Thanks!!

I will occasionally get some green around the top but I've never had anything grow inside the ink itself or have it dry to anything other than brown.

Could it be sheen?

I'm almost certain it isn't sheen, and if it is, it's the worst looking sheen I've ever seen. 0.0

The green around the top of the bottle and cap is a known artifact and nothing to worry about. I haven't seen any green in my written samples, can you post photos?

One of my favourite inks! I haven't noticed any green stains on the lid or cap, and certainly not on the page.

No problems.

 

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

This is my all time favorite ink--I've never seen any green. But then I've gone through half of my current bottle in a month. How old is the ink?

I've had the green experience . I've also seen the green show up on crusts and the like. I find the biggest way to show the green is on glossy paper (like photo or calendar paper).

I've also noticed it happens on glossier paper as well. I'll upload some pictures when I get home this evening. Also, sorry for the empty quote. Using this site on mobile is a bit difficult. :P

Shoot. See what I mean?? Anyway, I've noticed it happens on glossy paper, as well as with extra fine dry nibs.

I'd never seen the green before, but I did find a little dried on my cap. I think there must be a green dye in it. Here's a shot that shows different things, including a little green in the lighter areas. The paper is Tomoe River.

Interesting,

 

My snorkel has a great soft wet nib and has been sitting empty waiting to be filled with Toffee Brown on Friday

 

I will fill it up and use a sheet of Tomoe river to see if I can replicate it.

 

Gives me a good chance to test my new Lamy 2000 on that paper as well. :)

Its hard to see in this light, but there is a green tint to this ink, especially on glossy paper. Sorry it took me so long to find a photo!!

I believe brown can be made by mixing green and red, so a brown ink may indeed contain green dyes.
