DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
This ink is for dip pen use ONLY. Do not use inside fountain pens.

This Kaimei, also known as Moon Palace, Drawing Pen Ink is a rich, deep black ink that is a favorite among artists for its superior drying time. It is bleed resistant, fade resistant, fast drying, and water resistant when dry. It is alcohol resistant and can be used with alcohol-based markers. The wonderfully rich color is dark enough that even a fine line can be detected and scanned into a computer. It is ideal for use on tracing and drawing paper. The bottle features an indented pen rest on the top.

I've used many types of comic/manga ink, and this is one of the best-performing. It flows like a dream, dries quickly, and doesn't smear ONCE DRY (I just dragged my hand across my latest drawing, REALLY TRYING to smear it-- not a mark! And if you're fast and working on smooth bristol board, you can wipe away smudges before they dry with a carefully applied wet tissue.). Alcohol-based markers go over it without any smearing too. I've used both my brush and nib with it, and am so pleased with its performance. Will be ordering this one again.

Unlike other reviewers...

Unlike other reviewers I find this ink to be slow to dry and when it does it leaves a shiny finish. I don't know how this is beneficial to artwork being scanned. If you work under a drafting lamp the gloss will get on you nerves. The opening on the bottle is small and looking down it seems that a third of the inside is empty which means you have to dig to the bottom to apply ink on the nib.
The ink is dark and adheres to primed nib but it is a little gooey for my taste. Kaimei Lettering is Sol is so much better than this ink. In my opinion it's a waste of money.

From using Higgins and Deleter inks, this is the best one I have used! I love how quick it dries and the shiny finish. OMG! The fade resistance is amazing! I tend to erase either too hard or go over a line too many times. But this has withstand the erasing process in my drawings. I love it! Will be stocking up lol.
