As some of you may know Poland is one of biggest exporters of cosmetics, furniture and fruits. But we also have inks. Or, to be more precise, one ink maker – KWZI. Konrad offers handmade inks in more than sixty colors. You can check his website here.
Liquid Words is LE ink brewed for participants of polish Pen Show 2017. The ink is heavily saturated and was available for short time and in limited quantity.
Flow: This ink is wet and dense. It flows well, I haven’t experienced any hard starts or skipping..
Saturation: well saturated ink. There are stronger purples on the market, but for me, this level of saturation works fine.
Lubrication: good and pleasant.
Drying time: It can take a while, depending on the nib you use. 15-20 seconds on Rhodia, 5 – 8 seconds on absorbent paper.
Feathering: present on bad quality papers.
Bleedthrough: experienced only on Moleskine (crappiest paper ever)
Water resistance: nope.
