I really wanted to love this ink, but it is too
thick to use with my J. Herbin Glass Dip Pen.
While I still love the color, I have to really
think through how I want to use this ink. It is
Opaque instead of Transparent, but that can be a
good thing when you want to cover up something or
really want the ink to stand out. I use my inks
mostly for doodling and prefer Transparent or
Translucent inks, but do use this for little pops
of vibrant color. I only have the J. Herbin Glass
Dip Pen to use with this ink and have to only get
the ink on the very tip of the pen to get it write
or fill in an area. The color is an amazing color,
but I am unable to write with this color due to
the thickness of the ink. I do not see myself buying this regularly...
