A random assortment of ink

Noodler's, Diamine, Herbin

Just one quick ink journal photo this time: Noodler's Sequoia, Noodler's V-Mail North African Violet, Diamine Violet and J. Herbin Vert Reseda.

The assortment is random, it's just a few I wanted to check out at that moment.

Maybe you'll be able to view a larger size if you have a Flickr account.

So far Diamine Violet is the winner - looks smashing in a pen (more views of that later), shades well, behaves well, and has the charming effect of changing color as it dries. It goes down much more pink/magenta, and you can just watch it dry more blue. I really dig that.

Noodler's Sequoia is too... meh... for me. If I want a green, it needs to be more green than this. Also, it dries a bit slowly.

Noodler's V-Mail North African Violet is a lovely bright purple color, but it also dries a bit slowly for me.

The J. Herbin Vert Reseda was a gift. It is far too light for my taste. I put it in a pen once and could barely read it.
