As you maybe know, I'm a fan of Pharmacist's Iron Gall ink, so when I saw he was experimenting with non blue-black i-g ink, I was hooked. The wait seemed long, but two weeks ago Pharmacist announced that tha ink was ready, and last week I received a parcel from Belgium.
Inside, three bottles of ink : Terra Incinerata (green -> dark green), this Oriens-Occidens (orange -> brown) and the standard Document ink (blue -> blue-black).
I love Terra Incinerata, but an orange-brown i-g ink was too tempting not to try it, so I inked my home-ground Waterman Kultur with Oriens-Occidens to test it first. And here you have the review :
Water resistance : it's an iron gall ink, so it resist water! The bottom of the review has been submerged in water for 1 minute. Orange dye has completely disappeared, but the brown iron-gall is fully visible, and readable!
A wonderful ink, with all the properties I like in iron gall inks, but in a new and nice color. Great work, Pharmacist!
