Taccia Classic Blue Jeans on Midori MD

Ink

In 2020, Taccia launched the Jeans collection, a range of inks inspired by the colour of jeans. This is the Dark Washed Jeans ink from the collection.

The ink is an unsaturated mid-range blue with a little shading and no sheen. I didn’t notice any feathering or bleedthrough on Midori MD paper. I think the shade of blue matches the colour of blue jeans. Bravo to Taccia for nailing the colour so accurately.

Taccia Light Washed Jeans on Midori MD

Ink

In 2020, Taccia launched the Jeans collection, a range of inks inspired by the colour of jeans. This is the Light Washed Jeans ink from the collection.

The ink is a light, unsaturated blue with shading and no sheen. This is the second lightest ink in the Taccia Jeans ink series. It is readable but not a shade of blue that I like for writing. There is no feathering and bleedthrough on Midori MD paper.

Ferris Wheel Press Pink Eraser on Midori MD

Ink

Ferris Wheel Press Pink Eraser is a lovely pink colour that does resembles the colour of pink erasers. It has shading and no sheen. I don’t like the dry flow of the ink which can cause the pen to feel scratchy on certain papers.

Birmingham Pen Company MD paper Midori

Birmingham Boysenberry on Midori MD

Ink

Birmingham Pen Company is a small family-run business that makes fountain pens and fountain pen inks. While the company started with fountain pens, it seemed their focus is now on inks.

Boysenberry is from the Swift Formula collection where the inks were designed to be wetter than average and performs well in a wide variety of fountain pen. This ink is a maroon with shading and no sheen.

The ink has a very wet flow. Due to the wetness of the ink, it will perform well on some papers and worse on others. I think the ink will be more suitable in the finer nibs. On Midori MD paper, there is a little feathering but no bleedthrough.

Taccia Indigo Jeans on Midori MD

Ink

In 2020, Taccia launched the Jeans collection, a range of inks inspired by the colour of jeans. This is the Indigo Jeans ink from the collection.

The ink is a dark blue with a wet flow, shading and sheen. The sheen is easily visible in normal writing when it catches the light at the right angle. There is no feathering or bleedthrough on Midori MD paper.

Rings of colour residue

Cleaning a pen filled with this ink is more troublesome. It leaves faint rings of colour residue that can be remove with a gentle scrubbing with a cotton bud. This may a deal-breaker for some.

I really like this shade of blue and like it enough to put up with the more involved cleaning process. This is a keeper for me.

Taccia Grey Jeans on Midori MD

Ink

In 2020, Taccia launched the Jeans collection, a range of inks inspired by the colour of jeans. This is the Grey Jeans ink from the collection.

The ink is a pale blue-grey with an average flow and some shading. I feel this is pretty accurate to the colour that was seen on some types of jeans. However I find it too light to read comfortably.

Taccia Navy Blue Jeans on Midori MD

Ink

In 2020, Taccia launched the Jeans collection, a range of inks inspired by the colour of jeans. This is the Navy Blue Jeans ink from the collection.

The ink is a medium shade of blue with a slight teal undertone. The ink has a wet flow and I enjoy writing with it. I think this is a lovely shade of blue that really resembles the colour of blue denim. On Midori MD paper, there is a noticeable red sheen when the light catches the writing at the right angle.

Taccia Black Jeans on Midori MD

Ink

In 2020, Taccia launched the Jeans collection, a range of inks inspired by the colour of jeans. This is the Black Jeans ink from the collection.

This is a black ink which shades from dark grey to black. I do like my black inks to be dark and black. I tried to see if there was sheen in the writing, like the other inks in the Jeans collection. However, the ink was so dark that it was hard to tell whether there was any sheen.

Van Dieman’s Apricot on Midori MD

Ink

Apricot is from Van Dieman’s Harvest series which celebrates the colourful produce grown in Tasmania.

The ink is a pale orange that makes me think about pastoral sunsets and babies. I find this ink just about readable and obviously is more readable on white paper than cream-coloured paper. It shades well. However the high contrast between the light and dark areas can be distracting and hinders readability.

Taccia Dark Washed Jeans on Midori MD

Ink

In 2020, Taccia launched the Jeans collection, a range of inks inspired by the colour of jeans. This is the Dark Washed Jeans ink from the collection.

The ink is a dark blue / blue-black colour with shading. When the light hits the darker areas at the right angle, there is a noticeable red sheen even in normal writing. The ink has a wet flow. The ink takes a little more effort to clean as it leaves a bit of colour residue behind. I was not able to flush it away with water and had to use a cotton bud to gently scrub it away.

Rings of colour residue left behind in the pen body

This ink colour makes me think of a bruise. But not just an ordinary bruise, but a magnificent one ranging from deep purple to a blue so dark that it looked almost black. Because of its sheening properties, I think the ink will look good in a wet nib.

Trying to take a picture of the sheen. You can see a bit in the “i” in “Cahill”.
