Favorite Shade of Shading Ink!
This is the most beautiful shade of blue-violet ink of all the inks I've ever tried. If you are a fan of pale inks that shade heavily, this is simply one you must try. It is a somewhat drier ink, has never been problematic for me, in fact a bonus when I'm writing quickly to have a faster drying ink. I like using it best in my vintage flexible nib fountain pens where its shading properties can truly shine. It should be used on white paper because it is such a pale ink. There is no other ink color exactly like it. Concord Bream is similar in it's light tonal quality but was a disappointment in its feathering and lack of shading. I have high hopes for the Violet Blue ink from Faber-Castell. F-C's ink is darker on test strips. Once I try it I'll review. Regardless of others, there will ALWAYS be a bottle or two of Purple Haze in my ink collection. It's truly my favorite!
