What Bottle Of Ink Did You Just Finish?



Recommended Posts

As for Diamine Oxblood, I've transferred the last couple ml into an empty J. Herbin 10ml bottle (these are great!) to be kept as a reference in my hunt for the perfect blood red ink; Oxblood is endgame as far as colour goes, but the properties could be a little better. I'm now blasting my way through a 60ml bottle of KWZ Maroon and absolutely loving it.

 

Furthermore, Diamine Earl Grey is quickly diminishing as I continue to put it into a PenBBS 355 with a wet Jinhao M nib mounted on it. It gets good daily use at work and during RPG evenings with friends, but I doubt that it'll get used up this year.

Organics Studio Hunter Green, the closest I have found to MB Racing Green.

 

It also work very well and produces a vibrant green when thinned 50/50.

Back on topic: pics of an inkbottle you've just finished.

I just finished my Diamine Grape. Happy it's over. I bought it, looking for a very dark purple, almost black in a fine nib. That's what it does. But it's also (in my experience) very dry. Too dry for some pens.

I just finished a 30ml bottle of Pelikan 4001 Brilliant Brown, and started a new one. Brilliant Brown was a good discovery for me. My favorite brown is Iroshizuku Yama-guri, but sometimes it is too dark. Brilliant Brown is a nice bright hue, it shades nicely on many papers, and is well behaved in my pens. I use a lot a Diamine Ancient Copper which seems similar on the brightness scale. I find Brilliant Brown to be great less-red alternative to Ancient Copper.

The only ink I've ever finished bottles of is Pilot Blue-Black. Since I started branching out, and buying a wide variety of inks, I've not finished a bottle of anything.  Pilot BB remains my go to, but I have the giant soda bottle of that, as well as a bit of a small bottle, and a ton of the cartridges. 
 

Edit: My only other near empty bottle is a 30ml Diamine Deep Dark Red plastic bottle. I'll get the bigger glass bottle of that next, as it is terrific.

I didn't know anyone actually finished bottles of ink. I think I used all of a bottle of Pelikan Bright Brown once, back in the mists of time when I had three colors.

Montblanc Emerald. The old formula. That means I'm down to one bottle, so it may be time (after 30 odd years) to change the colour I use in my 149. I have a candidate already in the house, but I'm not sure If I'm ready to do it!

It takes some doing! Especially if you use Fine Japanese nibs...

Noodlers Black.  I finish a couple bottles a year.  Right now, I am focusing of whittling down my ink collection to a select six or seven, so I might finish several more this year.
