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

Toucan Royal Blue


I uploaded these pictures and the video a couple of days back, got distracted, and thought that I'd posted the blog. Well, I didn't. Now I have. Hooray!

Firstly, Royal Blue is kinda misnamed. I think of dark blues when I think of "royal blue" and that's not what this is. This ink is a light blue with very little saturation. It's an interesting blue, but it's too light for me. There is a sort of brightness to the ink, but it's not doing it for me all by itself.

The good news is that these inks (available only through Anderson Pens) are mixible. A drop or two of a cool green or something would really perk this ink up, I think.

Ink Comparison

There are a couple of blues in this set, and they're all more saturated than Royal Blue. It's brighter, but they're more blue.

Copy Paper Test


This chromatography has a couple more hues than the rest of the set does, with purple undertones and the main blue color.

This ink is a good value, and it has really good features. It flows well and there aren't any issues on the copy paper. It actually might look a bit better on the copy paper because it soaks in a bit more. You can (only) find bags and samples over at Anderson Pens. A 60ml bag goes for $10.

The ink for this review was provided free of charge by Anderson Pens. The review was all mine, however.
