Thoughts

What first drew me to this ink was actually the appearance of the ink bottle.  I just found it to be very unique and interesting, I haven’t taken a picture deliberately as I want it to be a surprise for you.

The actual ink itself is pretty good for the most part.  I would put this in the category of its a grower.  When I first started using it, I did find it way to light for my taste.  For me it almost border-lined a washed out look, it has no real dept to the colour. It is only when you start to shade with the Visconti Burgundy does it really start to look like a burgundy ink.  Using it for everyday writing it comes across more like a pale red.

Over the last few weeks I have forced myself to use this as my note taking ink and it has grown on me a tad bit more.  Can it really be a good ink though if you have to force yourself to use it?  There are parts of the ink that I do like, it drys fast and shades nicely but then I keep going back to the fact that it looks really washed out while writing.

I don’t dislike this ink but I don’t love it either.  I want to throw this out to you the readers, tell me your favourite burgundy ink!
