Tools: Sailor Mo Tangerine Ink

No Lojong today…
Wicked busy shellacking to a deadline!

First trip to Oblation Papers here in Portland. It took a friend visiting from out of town — so sorry I had not gone before but better for my wallet! Great store, lovely people, and we had fun sharing pen and ink stories.
I bought my first Sailor ink, Mo in Tangerine. I have to admit I was sold by the origami box… Beautiful product design!  A deeply pigmented orange ink, shown in journal and swabbed, below!  However, it has a very strange smell, like Band-aids!

The serendipity of using two orange inks in my 1584 Journal, I began to think they were very very similar.  But when I swabbed the inks, below, I could see differences. Diamine is brighter and leans pink, while yellows appears in the Tangerine.  I am enjoying this ink, but will not lament it when it is gone — when the smell is factored in, it is not a nice as other orange inks. Below I offer some comps, from my favorites, Pumpkin and Orange Zest, to warmer Robert Oster oranges.

Kill Winter With Orange!

Buddha is sporting fresh ink colors today.
