Toucan Crimson Ink Review

Toucan! My favorite thing about these inks is they are safely mixable with each other. I have a few favorites and I like to stick to those because I like lighter colors for putting in my super wet writers - they tend to show off their shading best that way. By the way, they are no longer offered in baggies like you see here. They're glass bottles.
Price: $6.90AUD

Ah...crimson. This is one of those colors that did not come out of the bag the way I expected. It looks a little washed out and not quite saturated enough for what I pictured a crimson to be. However, it's definitely mixable with other colors. Easy to clean at least, and looks best in broad, wet writers.

Sunday Reads: November 24. 2019

Sunday Reads


I am trying to manage my time a little better as I am juggling quite a few things - I know, we're all juggling things every day of our lives. I'm not unique in this, but I am not juggling very well. As such, I am going to change up the format of my Sunday Reads a little. I usually share links I enjoyed in the recent past and I will continue to do that. I share things I have posted this week, in case you missed anything. I share upcoming workshops at Toronto Pen Company, especially if we're heading to a pen show. Overall, I think I will reduce the links and only share my favourites and I will add some thoughts, like this one, when applicable. I hope you enjoy Sunday Reads. I started this years ago and I've received feedback that some of you out there enjoy it, so I don't want to take it away. Thank you for your love, support, and readership. I am grateful to have you all with me.

Thank you to Appelboom for loaning me the Rudyard Kipling and to a friend for loaning me his Homer! They have both been returned to their respective owners. Unfortunately. This is just a fun video because I like both of them and I just thought I could share my thoughts with you. I hope you enjoy.

The Bright Green, like last week's Bright Blue is not super saturated and makes for a great blender. I actually like this one more than the bright blue because it falls into that limey green category, even if just barely. Great shading. It's easy to clean, too.
