Platinum Pigment Rose Red Ink


Margana
 Share

Recommended Posts

Platinum Pigment Ink is odd in that it looks opaque in the bottle, but not on paper. The colors are somewhat muted and not as brilliant as highly saturated dye-based inks. On some brands of paper, it can be slow to dry so lefties will have to compensate.

 

This is a page written a couple of months ago with my initial notes. Since then the pen has had only very intermittent use, but it has started without hesitation and suffered no clogs. Anyone else had similar good success with this brand of ink?

For some reason the image is loading *extremely* slowly.... (as in, "I took a ten minute break to deal with laundry and it's only gotten as far as the date on the page" slow).

ETA: Huh. Went back to the list of topics, then clicked on this thread again and the page loaded just fine. Weird.

Anyway, thanks for the review. How water resistant is the ink?

Ruth, that's a great question. I drew a squiggle on the back of an envelope, let it dry for 30 seconds and held it under running water. It didn't budge. Not even a little. I really didn't expect that level of water resistance, but it beats any other pink ink in my collection.

The color is quite nice, though I wish it was a tad bit brighter. The ink definitely seems a lot more saturated in the pen. I sadly don't see much shading, but I guess that's to be expected since it is pigmented. If you don't mind me asking, where did you pick it up and for how much?

My bottle was a gift, but I checked a couple of retailers and found it at Jet Pens and Pen Chalet. Others should have it as well. Prices vary.

Thank-you for the review. I agree ... it's not a colour that shades, but then it was not designed to. I had to add a lot of water to it in order to achieve the below affects on Stillman & Birn, Zeta paper. I drew the below in May and the colour has not shifted. A good ink for sketching.

 

It is also available in the US at Goulet pens.

Ah, pretty. Alas, I never seem to find good uses for pink or red inks except for mixes, and I presume these are an absolute no-no for mixing even with each other...?

I like my ink straight-up, so haven't looked into mixing them. Research today turned up nothing on the subject though I did find admonitions about good pen hygiene with pigment inks which is good advice for all inks. Without planning, I've only used Pigment Inks in Platinum pens. No reason to think they won't perform well in other brands of pens, but in the Preppy and the #3776 Century the inks have been very well-behaved.

Yeah, after posting I did a search on the matter and found several queries about it, but no pictorial evidence of any results. But on the other hand there didn't seem to be any dire warnings not to do it, so maybe one day my curiosity will get the better of me. It often does.

Pira, I love your trees. I think you should sell the trunks printed on tomoe river paper and then the rest of us could play. Oh, come to think of it, how about a tree trunk stamp? Or maybe a resizable gif?

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

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
