Vinta Mulberry on Midori MD

Ink

Mulberry (Ubi 1663) is the full name of the ink. Ubi refers to purple yam and 1663 marks the Mindanao monarchies’ victory against the Spanish invaders.

The ink is a warm purple and has an average flow. Like the other Vinta ink I’ve tested, I encountered a gentle burping of ink a few times, just enough to notice a sudden darkening and thickening of the line. It happened about once every few pages. I’m not sure if it is the ink, the pen, the weather, or maybe a combination of all. It is also quite likely that you may not experience the burping issues I did, YMMV.

On Midori MD paper,

  • Shading: Yes
  • Sheen: Unnoticeable, you have to really look for it
  • Feathering: Nil
  • Bleedthrough: Nil

Vinta Elysium Green on Midori MD

Ink

Elysium Green (Kayangan 1967) is the full name of the ink. It is named after Kayangan Lake which is said to be the cleanest lake in the Philippines. In 1967, the island where the lake was located was declared a National Reserve.

The ink is a dark green and has an average flow. While doing the writing samples, I noticed that the pen gently burped ink a few times, just enough to notice a sudden darkening and thickening of the line. It about once every few pages. This is the first time I’ve experienced it. I’m not sure if it is the ink, the pen, the weather, or maybe a combination of all. It is also quite likely that you may not experience the burping issues I did, so YMMV.

Vinta Terracotta on Kokuyo Campus

Ink

Vinta Terracotta (Damili 1572) is orange ink inspired by clay craftsmanship. It is brighter when wet, then dries to a earthy orange. It really looks like red clay, and also reminds me of autumn leaves.

I didn’t expect to love this ink so much. The more I used it, the more I love it. It shades beautifully and is easy to clean out.

Paper

I like writing on this paper. It is smooth and holds up well to fountain pen ink.
