Anything that turns to jelly like this bottle of Private Reserve or inks that separate when sitting for a few hours – most inks from Diamine or Noodler’s – I avoid like the plague.
I avoid shimmer and glitter inks too.
Now – I’m not saying you should avoid these inks, or that there’s anything bad or wrong with them. I avoid them. I like easy to clean inks and water proof writing isn’t important to me.
Diamine Lavender separated in the converter…
I decanted the lavender into an empty bottle once the sediment settled so I could use it without the headache.
