9 more inks tested – of note:
Sheaffer Skrip Black: One of my trusted mates. A great writing ink with all the qualities needed for creating art. Reacts gold with bleach and blends well.
Parker Quink Black: The most versatile ink ever. Breaks down with water to give gorgeous greys and blues with a gold edging. Reacts with bleach like neon and writes well too. My best mate – I couldn’t live without it!
Waterman Red: A great ink. Writes well, blends beautifully and bleaches gold. Works really well with Quink black.
Sheaffer Skrip Brown: A great writing ink of rich colour with all the qualities needed for creating art. Bleaches gold and blends well.
Sheaffer Skrip Peacock Blue: A great writing ink of pure colour with all the qualities I need for creating art. Bleaches white and blends well.
Waterman Purple: A great writing ink of rich colour. Blends well but doesn’t easily react with bleach.
Waterman South Sea Blue: A great ink. Writes well, blends beautifully and bleaches white/gold.
Waterman Green: A great ink of rich colour. Writes well, blends beautifully and bleaches gold.
Noodlers Prime of the Commons Blue/Black: Got this courtesy of Pure Pens. Writes beautifully but as a creative juice behaves more like a watercolour paint and doesn’t react with bleach. Not a pure blender either due to pigments within the ink. Interesting.
