Wanted: Burgundy-Purple Ink, Wet and Saturated


GNL
 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello FPNers - I’m searching for a burgundy ink that tends more toward purple than red.  Purgundy?  Burple?  I like wet inks that are highly saturated, rather than milky or murky in appearance.  Shading is nice, but not required.

 

Thanks!

Current favorite ink: Colorverse Supernovs

Cult Pens Deep Dark Purple might suit your needs. It's neither deep nor dark, and definitely leans more towards burgundy than I'd expect from a purple, so I didn't care for it, but it does match your description.

I am very interested in this topic! My first bottle was PR Burgundy Mist and I spilled it a while back. For years I assumed I could get another bottle. Oops.

If you look at the purple thread in my signature link, you will find a bunch.  Also, you can look at this gallery:

 But the gallery doesn't have all images from other people.  

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

Consider determining the hex code for the color of interest and then go to https://inkswatch.com/choice.html and put in that code.  It will give you a variety of inks that match.  You can then check out reviews to see which are rated as wet-flowing.

Liz, I had no idea this existed!  Thanks!

There is (was? not sure) also Montblanc Burgundy red. I bought the last bottle when our boutique closed here some years ago.

Wow! Two amazingly helpful sites that I was unaware of - thanks for posting. I can now start the search for a proper dark aka-tamenuri ink.

Is this for a aka-tamenuri urushi pen? If I was looking for a matching ink that's saturated I think I'd look at Fritz Schimpf Morgenroete, KWZ Maroon, or Robert Oster Maroon 1789 but I don't see those as purple-leaning burgundies - more like rich, brown-leaning burgundy.

Script nib for writing screenplays. • Fine nib for my best writing. • Extra fine for my *very* best writing. • Medium for requesting a séance. • Bold for adventure stories. • Manifold for many various types of writing. • Coarse for indignant letters. • Oblique for making a point in a roundabout way. • Italic when I'm inclined. • Stub for when I intend to leave a manuscript unfinis

OK, I may have a few ideas that may suit your criteria:

 

In addition to the Diamine MERLOT and Noodler's TULIPE NOIR already mentioned, 

L'Artisan Pastellier Callifolio BOURGOGNE

Bungubox L'AMANT

Pelikan AMETHYST

Herbin POUSIÈRE de LUNE

 

Hope this helps!
