Do you have an ink dependence? I can help...

Noodler's Kiowa Pecan

11/5/12
This is a really great brown ink. I have always been attracted to brown inks. They can be formal, but not normal. This particular brown is right in the middle of the brown-spectrum. It's not too dark, and it's not too yellow. It's a shading brown, and it shades on everything. I've even seen it shade well on comp book paper. That stuff is cheap and thin, but it can't stop Kiowa Pecan from shading.

It also behaves itself. You'll see a little ghosting on cheaper papers, but it doesn't bleed, and it doesn't spread or feather. Excellent characteristics for a shading ink, since so many of them have a tendency to be super wet and bleed into whatever paper you use. Not this one. I can totally recommend this brown.




I wouldn't call this ink water resistant, exactly, but there is definitely a good bit left behind when it gets wet. Looking at the paper several days later, the lines are still legible on the page.

I completely agree with your comments. Kiowa Pecan has such a range it's amazing. I find it goes from a golden honey to a chestnut. I love this ink so much; I call it a Soul ink.
