This is dangerous ink....
September 25, 2014
This is dangerous ink. It is a deep, deep, deep dark red, and colors this
vibrant have ingredients that can spell trouble. But first, let me say
something good about this ink. It is the most dramatic and eye-catching shade
of red I've encountered, and I struggle every time I reach to throw this bottle
of ink into the garbage. I still haven't been able to toss it.
Now the cons:
1) It takes forever and a day to dry and if you so much as drag an arm hair
across this ink you will have a mess on your hand. Are you a left-hander?
Absolutely, positively forget it unless you are constantly working with blotter
paper. And it is so slow to dry that even if you aren't careful with blotter
paper you will smear it. What I mean is that if you place the blotter paper and
accidentally drag it across the page instead of pressing straight down, it will
2) The heavy sediment content responsible for the great colors is also what
makes it clog my pens. Every time I use this ink I have to spend 5-10 minutes
washing it out of my pens when I'm done.
3) If this ink so much as touches fabric on your clothes or furniture, they're
ruined. I write with fountain pen inks all the time and I'm an expert at
removing ink stains. But this stuff...forget it.
This ink is like that super sexy, beautiful, crazy girl that actually wants to
date you. Screw it! you say. What's a couple dates? How can you turn this
woman down? Famous last words.
