Indian "camlin" Royal Blue Ink



Rate Topic 0

Recommended Posts

Recently got by post Indian "Camlin" Royal Blue ink 60ml. It came in a box, carefully packed. I liked the cap on a bottle - it opens easily and at the same time not a drop spilled during the transportation. The quality of ink is also nice. It's a bit more liquid than "Parker", but writes great on average quality paper (not too porous). This ink doesn't colorise the pen's grip section too fast (like for ex. USSR "Raduga") and doesn't dry if left for more than a couple of days inside the pen without writing, which are additional pluses. The smell of this ink is very light and quite pleasant. Would I buy it again? Yes, and I'd like to try other colors. Here are the pictures of the bottle and writing. At the moment this ink is one of my favourites.

It looks to be well saturated. I think a broad nib would work well with Camlin royal blue.

 

Is the pen the "Raduga" mentioned? What color is it? I love the color.

I like this ink but found the caps once opened would not secure the ink anymore as the would just keep turning - my solution was Urine sample bottles - perfect fit and air tight so my ink is safe - plus point is if you buy them online they double up as catridge / converter / spare part storage devices.

 

But back to the ink if you mix it with Camlin Scarlet Red you get a lovely purple colour - in my ratio it was a near perfect match for Diamine Tyrian Purple.

Great job, Julia!

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

Love the ink. Have about 10 bottles of it! :D I guess its the reliability and the fill-and-forget nature of the ink that makes it so practical. I have been using this ink since my school days till now. Thats almost 20 years! And NEVER had any problems with this ink. I love blues and this reminds me of the colour of the deep sea or late evening/midnight sky.

Does anybody know whether this ink is still available in the glass bottles or just the plastic ones?

The older version used to be in Glass bottles. Now, it is sold in plastic ones. As I liked the glass bottles, I did not throw them out. So i just refill the glass bottles with the plastic ones.
