Pilot Iroshizuku Ama-Iro ink review

22 May 2014 By ian

This might well be my new favourite mid-blue ink. It is so bright and lovely and cheerful. It also dries quickly, flows smoothly and has some beautifully subtle shading. (Shhh don’t tell anyone but I like this a lot more than Kon-Peki.) Here I am starting to doodle the Inkling but my camera ran out […]

Pilot Iroshizuku Ina-Ho (Rice Ear) ink review
