Diamine China Blue fades REALLY FAST.

This is how it's supposed to look when it's still wet:

Compared with R&K:

Diamine acquires a slightly greenish hue when it dries.

 

 

And neither of the two inks is water resistant:

Drat, the images aren't showing.

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

Not showing on my monitor either, but click on the link at the bottom of the OP's message and you can see them all.

Now the images are back. Someone at Internet Central is playing with us.

 

And two minutes later, they are gone again.

Drat. It must be the OPs hosting service. Now I can seed all of them.
