The last Kyo No Oto ink that I will review is this cute pink ink called Imayouiro. It’s an intense pink when wet but it dries to a more mellow, suitably saturated pink. Dark enough to be easily readable, but also light enough to look a bit delicate on paper. It’s not a screaming neon pink color, but something that would look nice with calligraphy or in combination with other darker inks on a page.
The flow is pretty wet on a medium nib. It’s also quite well-behaved. It’s not all over the place, doesn’t feather or bleed through. It dries relatively fast at 15 seconds or so. It’s not water resistant. It’s got beautiful shading, though not really what I would call expressive or with a complex range of colors. It’s a pretty standard, nice-flowing, saturated pink ink. Here are a few close ups of the writing sample.
Kyoto inks are available at Everything Calligraphy.
