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

Toucan Orange


There's a fun hashtag on Instagram right now (#killwinterwithorange), and this ink fits right in with that theme. The idea is that winter is a dreary time of year, and orange is the cure. I'm down with this.

Toucan's Orange is a really solid ink. It's saturated enough to use regularly, and it doesn't have any problems on copy paper. I was using this ink in an orange pen (this Artista Crystal), and that's a little weird for me. I'm just not into matching pens and inks. Another odd thing about this match is that I bent my Artista's nib, so I have a Franklin-Christoph nib in there. It wasn't working all that well, but I think that's because the feeds are different, so I won't hold that against this ink. I had some hard starts, but it flows just fine once it starts. I'm pretty sure it was a nib issue.

Check it out below, and get yourself a bag of this orange beauty exclusively from Anderson Pens (who graciously sent this ink out for review).

Ink Comparisons

Here's a close-up of those colors I thought they looked nice together. It's a bit like the Blazing Sunset ink from last time, but it doesn't have the shading or the bleeding issues of Blazing Sunset. Probably better all-around.


Here's a Time-Lapse of this chromatography in action:

Water resistance? I don't predict much of that from this ink.

Copy Paper Test

  I'll include a comparison of these two inks on copy paper. One definitely behaves better.

Video Review and Water Drop Test

Toucan's Orange is a solid orange ink. It's got some good saturation, and the color is bright and summery. You can (only) find bags and samples over at Anderson Pens. A 60ml bag goes for $10.
