Smear Test (Dry Time):
- 30 seconds – Pilot Iroshizuku Momiji is a bit on the wetter side, so it follows that it would take a little bit longer to dry.
Drip Test (Water Resistance):
- Medium – As you can see with the drip test, you can see a little bit of the lines left behind, but this is not a very water resistant ink. It works well for ink washes, and art projects though.
- Medium – There is a bit of a difference between 1 and 3, but not really any difference between 2 and 3. It's pretty consistent between swabs.
Ease of Cleaning:
- Medium – This ink is very easy to clean from a pen, but it's a different story if you get it on your hands! You're bound to have a little pink left over if you get it on your fingers.
- Low – There is practically no shading with Momiji, which is interesting, because with enough ink, you can get some light sheen.
- Medium – Like most Iroshizuku inks, this has a good flow. It works well with all nib sizes.
Packaging and Aesthetics:
- This lovely 50ml glass bottle is very distinctive, and perfect for displaying your ink. This distinctive shape is instantly recognizable, and the clean label ties the look together. The opening is wide enough to fill most pens from.
