A Beautiful Purple/Blue ink

As I slowly and surely build my ink collection I realized I needed a purple ink. There are many to choose from but I finally decided on Sailor Shikiori Fugi-sugata. Its light blueish-purple looked pretty so I went with it. It is currently inked up in my TWSBI ECO . I thoroughly cleaned this pen out with pen flush and water, and dissembled it and let it the parts sit in a water bath over night to get the truest form of this ink. The ink dries around 20 seconds so fine for journaling but not great for quick note taking. It writes on the drier side, and on a rare occasion I have a difficult time getting ink to start flowing from the pen. The ink is fairly water resistant, as far as fountain pen inks goes. When it does get wet you can see the mixture of the ink began to separate with blue dye forming around the edges. If you look at the image attached the D in drip test is the best example of this. This event never happens in normal writing I should add. I do like the shading of dark purple to light purple and I think it makes any writing with this ink look a tad more interesting. All in all I am very satisfied with this ink and would recommend it to anyone looking for a lighter purple.

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.

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

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
