Light but pretty

I'n a fan of all the yurameku inks that I've tried, but this one is special. I haven't tested it on anything other than TR 52 paper and the color ring cards. It looks more like the swatches above on the TR paper. With the lighter colors you really need to use a broad nib, maybe even a western medium to see the different colors. These really are mysterious inks and it's hard to narrow down the color. I have some of the new darker shades in medium nibs and they look great! I'm amazed every time I use these inks, this one is definitely worth getting a sample of!

Mislabeled or identical to Seki

Agree with other reviewer, either I received a mislabeled bottle or it is virtually indistinguishable from Seki, on all papers with all sizes of pen nibs. Will probably contact Goulet to address this.

Not at all like the image

The ink sample I received is no where near what is pictured here. The ink I have is gray on both Claire Fontaine and Tomoe River paper. Under bright light and magnification the color is pinkish with green shading. I think the bottle I received was mislabeled. It's probably Seki but I'll never know unless I buy another sample.

Lovely shading effect

It's quite light, so perhaps not the best to write with. But the shading! Incredible! It's captivating in large swatches, and I've tried painting with it on watercolor paper. A good match for the Kaweco Sport Iridescent.

FAQ about Ink Samples

How do I fill my fountain pen from an ink sample vial? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It depends on the fountain pen's filling mechanism.

Check out our blog post on How to Fill a Fountain Pen from an Ink Sample Vial.

How much writing can I do with 2ml of ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It really depends on how big or small you write, and the nib size you’re using. We find that usually you can get 2 good fills for a typical converter with our Ink samples, or one good fill with a piston-filling pen. How much writing depends on you more than anything else, so we recommend experimenting with different nib sizes to find what works best for you. 

What is shading, sheening, or shimmering ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Shading - A common (and often desired) result of a fountain pen ink pooling in certain parts of a letter when writing, so that the color and saturation of the ink appears different within a single letter or word. This characteristic cannot be achieved with ballpoint or rollerball pens and is a very appealing aspect of fountain pen use for those particularly drawn to all the pretty ink colors.

Sheen - Characteristic of a fountain pen ink where when ink pools another color can be seen on top of the ink, especially when looked at in different light angles using certain paper types. There is no way to guarantee an ink will sheen, but using a larger nib on a pen will help obtain sheening results in your writing.

Shimmering - Fountain pen ink that has small particles of glitter mixed in.

Is shimmering ink safe to use in fountain pens? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes! Shimmering ink is a great way to add some flare to your writing. We have found that a larger nib will showcase more shimmering particles while writing, but you can use any nib size and shimmering ink. All the ink we sell is safe for use in fountain pens.

You can learn more in our blog: How to Write with Shimmering Ink.
