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

Noodler's Antietam

Antietam is a red/brown ink that shades a bit on almost every paper that I've tried it on. The swatch to the left here shows the variation you can achieve if you put down more or less ink. Of course, the amount of ink in the center there is quite a lot, and it took forever for that bit to dry out. I don't recommend attempting that with a pen.

If I'm trying to describe this color in terms of the other similar inks I've talked about (or will be talking about in the near future), I would say it is:

This was an ink that I used for a long time. It's an odd color, so I wasn't using it every day, but it did stay in my TWSBI 540 for a really long time. I'm a fan. The flow is excellent, the color is interesting, and it refused to feather or spread or feather even on cheap filler paper. This one is worth checking out.

It's a reddish/orange ink so it doesn't have any degree of water-resistance, right? Well, you might be surprised. 

I say at the end that I thought it would dry lighter than it appears in the video, but I'm looking at the dry page right now, and it's not all that light. I wouldn't call it "water resistant," but I was surprised to see that any of it was legible.
