Organics Studio Da Vinci Golden Mind - Quick Look



Davros

Recommended Posts

Golden Mind is one of the White Box inks, and is available from Anderson Pens in a very limited quantity. In case you're on the fence, here is a quick look.

 

In summary, I really like the color. If you like dryish ink, take a look. It doesn't feel wet enough for me, but I prefer wet pens and wet inks. It's a dead ringer for Diamine Marigold, and has zero water resistance. It washes as a uniform color, so might be useful for a wash.

 

Sorry for the photos. I didn't want to wait until I got my new scanner, in case anyone was on the fence.

Text of review:

This is Organics Studio da Vinci's Golden Mind in a broad wet Jowo #6 (Scr. Pens) on white Tomoe River paper. It feels pretty dry, or maybe just not super lubricated. I don't have a lot of golden-orange inks, but I will compare with Diamine Marigold, my favorite ink in this shade.

 

Golden Mind is very legible, and while bright and cheerful, not painful to read. I have only done cursory testing, but haven't encountered any clogging issues.

 

I really do love the color, but not sure I have room for another golden ink. (It does have a consistent wash.)

----

The water drips show more residue than I see. I don't think this is resistant at all.

Thanks sooo much... I was looking for this ink for some time.

 

 

Did you get all of the White Box inks?

Light is gone here, but the mini-review is written. I will try to make it happen tomorrow. It is interesting; I don't have anything like it. I am waiting for sunlight before looking for the shimmer.

I like the combo of the ink with that PEN - a perfect complEment.

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

      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

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
