Lovely shade

By far my favorite ink I've used to date. It is more orange-pink on paper than pure pink, but compliments white, cream and green paper. This ink is very smooth, very shareable.Side note, this ink is very similar to Ferris wheel Press's Coral. Only difference is that Ferris wheel makes a drier ink that appears darker.

Flowed beautifully with a glass dip pen

I used a glass dip pen with this ink, on Tomoe River 52 gsm white paper and it was lovely. The flow was consistent and shaded beautifully. I had to water down the ink a wee bit toward the end of my letter, and it turned a soft pink that was still totally legible. I'm not normally a fan of orange/pinks but this is worth a second look.

A beauty!

I'm not generally a pink-y kind of person, but I fell pretty hard for the Eco-T in coral - and this ink is a great match. The flow is a little bit dry, but in a wet nib it's nicely saturated on the page. If you're looking for a shimmer version, Diamine's Pink Champagne is a dead ringer. The gold shimmer makes it a tiny bit more orange, but the base colors are identical.

Great ink! Lovely unique shade of coral

I picked this ink up as I was looking for something unusual. Coral is not a color that I had anything even remotely close to, and I thought it would be a nice one to take with me to the beach. It is a bit more coral-orange than the photo shows (at least on my monitor) but it is definitely a coral, not orange. It does not really shade, but it has nice flow and a decent dry time. It is overall very well behaved. I was concerned it would be too light or bright, but it is not. It is a pleasing and unusual coral tone. I will be buying another bottle soon as I have a feeling I will use this one up quickly.

FAQs about Bottled Ink

Which pens can accept this ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Any of these fountain pens will work with bottled ink. Typically, as long as the pen can be filled with a converter, has a built-in filling mechanism like a piston, or can be eyedropper-filled, it can accept bottled ink.

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.

My ink smells funny, is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Generally yes! Ink does not smell good- it usually has a chemical smell, along with other scents such as sulfur, rubber, chemicals or even paint. However, as long as you’re not seeing anything floating in the ink, it should be safe to use.

It’s cold and my ink froze; is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes, frozen ink will not hurt your pen (after it’s thawed of course!) The issue with ink freezing is primarily a concern because certain glass bottles could break as the water-based ink expands, and then you’d have a mess!

What is your return policy for bottled ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B
