Toucan Royal Blue 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

Toucan's Royal Blue is much lighter than I expected. Medium saturation, but very easy to blend with and clean out of pens. It looks like a washed out version of a royal blue to me, not rich and saturated, but it does show some shading.

Golden Glow & Shimmer Fountain Pen Ink Fun with Dip Nibs

We all love using our fountain pens for what I like to consider "valid" reasons - at work, writing papers, writing a thesis, writing a book, drawing, sketching - all that real stuff. I don't do all of those things but I do use my fountain pens and inks and even my nicer notebooks for real life things. However, I also love to just mess around and play with inks and papers in my downtime. Here we have Diamine Tropical Glow and Diamine Golden Sands inks; two shimmer inks that blend beautifully on the page. I am using an Osprey Pens Milano with a Zebra G dip nib to mess around with in this video. It's just for fun. You can also just use a dip nib in a holder. All that means is you have to dip more but it makes clean up very simple! Enjoy!

Primrose is a bright, pure yellow - not particularly legible and not the kind of yellow I care much for. It is a good color for blending with or for artwork but I can't find much use for this shade. Even with triple broad nibs! It is a cinch to clean out of pens, though.

Music Nib Fountain Pen Satisfying Inky Fun!

I bought a Warranted music nib several years ago and although I do not use them for their "intended purpose", I enjoy just writing with them. They're smooth, super juicy, and soft, which are all features I love in a fountain pen writing experience. Please enjoy this fun and inky video!
