De Atramentis Document Ink - White (35ml Bottled Ink) is rated

NOT for fountain pens
I so wanted this to be a good ink, and I SO love De Atramentis Document inks, but it clogs even the wettest clog-free pens so fast! It has medium coverage properties with both pen and brush, and is waterproof, but it clogs my pens within 24 hours, capped. I doubled up two layers to get the depth of white, below Still, if it didn't clog I'd keep a preppy filled -- but it clogged the 05 medium nib in record time and I've NEVER had that pen clog, ever, with any ink.

Not opaque, but pretty good!
I love white ink! I was very excited to see this ink available. It actually performed much better than I expected. If you like the muted look, the ink looks great on dark gray. I did not have any smearing issues with it at all (see the picture attached). I saturated a Q tip and ran it over the words a several times and it did not want to budge. The only bad thing that the white is not opaque, but it's a fountain pen ink, so the fact that white can be done is pretty amazing.

1% Lowfat Milk
I was hopeful as this ink came out of my medium nib onto black stock...it looked like opaque white while it was wet! Then it dried. Now It is only "half opaque", which isn't really a real thing. Let's say "translucent"...unless I'd like to write over it again. It goes more towards opaque white the more its layered upon itself. Kind of a hassle.

Couldn't get it washed out of my pen fast enough
As an artist and loving the document black I gave this a shot. I was hoping for an opaque thick white like I have in my signo pen, but no. It is very transparent and I could see a ghost of a line when I wrote on black paper. Super disappointed with this ink. I washed it out promptly.
