New ink day for me! I love Birmingham inks.

Three inks that don’t look alike to the naked eye have very similar chromatography results. All samples were purchased from @justvanness @robertostersignature #chromatography #inkaday2018

#InkADay2018 #day557

At the SF Pen Show Strait’s Pens had an ink mixing station and I couldn’t resist the chance to get my own bottle. Of course, I’m not known for my imagination so I came out with my own blue black.

Kobe #57 Himeajisai Hydrangea
#InkADay2018 #day556

This one surprised me. It’s on the lighter side of useful, but I thought it would be a closer match for my big surprise of the year (Montblanc Elixir Violet de Cobalt.) But I find that it is more blue and less vibrant. Still, a very pretty color, if you keep the lighter color in mind.

Private Reserve Tropical Blue
#InkADay2018 #day553

While normally I tend to avoid Private Reserve inks, this one is an awfully nice color; a very vibrant blue. Since I own the bottle, I’ll go ahead and use it from time to time, though I’ll keep a close eye on it. Definitely no water resistance here.
Comparison inks: Diamine Cobalt Jazz, ColorVerse SuperNova, PRIVATE RESERVE TROPICAL BLUE, Monteverde Horizon Blue; Levenger Skies of Blue, Iroshizuku Kon-Peki, Diamine Kensington Blue, Kobe 37 Harbour Island Blue

Bung Box 88
#InkADay2018 #day551

This is one of those green/browns that has really grown on me. As the chromatography shows, it builds on a range from yellow through brown, led by a very vibrant green. Still, I expected it would be a good match for the ever popular Alt-Goldgrün, but to my surprise, it merely served to make that one look really green. I bought my bottle from @andersonpens at the SF pen show. .
Today I have it in my brand spanking new Red Dragon pen — a custom pen that I had virtually no input on, beyond saying that skinny pens are painful for me to use. I told the artist to do anything he wanted, and this was the spectacular result. It’s made from vintage ceboplast, black Japanese ebonite, and slices of ox horn. Even prettier in person.
