Ferris Wheel Press Three Steamboats on Traveler’s Company

Ink

Ferris Wheel Press Three Steamboats is from the Freshly Squeezed Collection.

The ink looks like a minty green to me. It is a lovely colour with shading and no sheen. However, in writing, I find that it often lays down too light a line and the high contrast of the shading means I have to put more effort in reading. Flow-wise, it is on the dry side. This ink would probably do better in the wetter nibs.

On Traveler’s Company paper (Midori MD paper), there is shading and no sheen. I did not notice any feathering or bleedthrough.

Taccia Classic Blue Jeans on Traveler’s Company

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 beautiful shading. There is no feathering and no bleedthrough on this paper. I think the shade of blue matches the colour of blue jeans. Bravo to Taccia for nailing the colour so accurately.

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.

Ferris Wheel Press Pink Eraser on Traveler’s Company

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.

Taccia Light Washed Jeans on Traveler’s Company

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 Traveler’s Company paper.

Taccia Grey Jeans on Traveler’s Company

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. I found the writing too light to read comfortably in less than ideal light conditions. It would probably do best in a wet or broad nib.

Taccia Black Jeans on Traveler’s Company

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.

Taccia Navy Blue Jeans on Traveler’s Company

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 Traveler’s Company paper, there is shading and when the light catches it at the right angle, the sheen can be seen in normal writing. I did not notice any feathering or bleedthrough.

Taccia Dark Washed Jeans on Traveler’s Company

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 and displays a noticeable red sheen on some papers. There is shading and a tiny bit of sheen on Leuchtturm paper, but it is difficult to see the sheen. 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.

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.
