Other Inks With Color Variance Like Apache Sunset?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new here, but I've kicked around online and can't find the answer to my question.

 

I've heard quite a lot about Noodler's Apache Sunset, and I love that the color actually "changes" - yellow, gold, red, orange. (Is there a word for this??? It is different than just 'Shading'... but I'm not sure if there is another term to use.)

 

I'd like to know if you guys can recommend some other inks that show this phenomenon. I am especially interested in greens, and also blue/purple range. I've heard there might be a blue/purple with maroon shading in it for instance. The only green I know of is Rohrer & Klingner Alt-Goldgrun. Possibly also Edelstein Aventurine. (Not sure on that one. I saw one pic that made me think yes.)

 

 

Any suggestions you might have would be greatly appreciated!

 

(I'm using dip and fountain pens.)

Check out Brian Goulet's video on YouTube of his favorite (7) shading inks.

 

Enjoy,

Very nice, his new updated shading inks video is from last month. I hadn't seen this one.

Thanks both of you! : )

I love watching the Goulet videos, although I haven't seen them all. I also like watching the sbrebrown videos; these are also informative and entertaining.

I know! Gray!!! Who woulda thunk?

I don't have any gray inks yet, so can better justify another ink purchase. ;)

I like Diamines Autumn Oak. It's a similar color with not as bright from what I can tell. Having used both, they look different enough to have a bottle of each. Between the two I like Autumn Oak more, but Apache Sunset still looks awesome.

Crunching the numbers, IDK if it is as economical to do the big bottle... the free pen is a Preppy, converted to eye dropper. ($4 pen $2 conversion)

 

$12.50 for 3 oz

$18 for 4.5oz (at the 3oz price, the 4.5 would cost 12.50+6.25=18.75...)

 

Ok, nevermind, it IS a deal! lol

 

Saves you about $5. Ink is a shade cheaper, $.75 and then you get a pen. Not a fancy pen but still.

 

 

#LexingtonGray (let's DO this!) :D

Am putting in a personal plug. Must-try: Noodler's Navajo Turquoise, one of my all-time favorites. Yes, I want Lexington Gray as well. Even though I have thinned Noodler's Black to a gray shade that shades pretty well.

 

Enjoy,

OMG i totally just threw that in with the samples i ordered. ;D it looks sooooooooooo nice. (the navajo turquoise)

 

ahhhh i can't wait to get all my stuff!! i think Lex grey will be perfect but i got 54th manhattan too, just in case the pics don't do it justice. either way, they are both waterproof and i hope to make one of them my daily note-taking ink at work. <3

 

noodler's standard black? how does that look thinned out? is it grey, blue, green?

One of my favorites is Diamine Salamander. It's a lovely vegetable green but it plays tricks with my eyes and sometimes I think it's shading into a reddish brown. Of course it might be my eyes but it does it with many different pens and nibs.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
