Ink Shot Review: P.W. Akkerman Dutch Masters Gele Oker van Frans @vulpennen

Here is one of twelve Dutch Masters inks - I picked this one because the yellow looked so good in the clear bottle!
Akkerman The Hague presents a brand new ink collection, dedicated to the great Dutch Masters. We have twelve characteristic colours available, each of which is inspired by paintings of Rembrandt, Hals, Vermeer and other famous Dutch painters. The names of the ink are based on the colour or subject of the paintings.

CONS

  • Not inexpensive, though you get a lot of ink and a sexy bottle!
  • Sometimes there is bleed through.

OVERALL

I love using this ink for all sorts of goodness - not just writing and art-ing, but also for mixing with other inks (though I cannot condone such behavior if you chose to do so). The yellow is gorgeous and looks so good in bottle and in pen! Love love love. Without a doubt, my favorite yellow and the only one I ever want to own.
