Ever since my first bottle of Bungbox Ink arrived I have been in love. It is by far one of my favorite brands, with beautiful attributes all around. I have only tried three of these inks so far but none of them have been disappointing and all have been worth the $43.00 price tag.
Clown Tears is no exception. It comes in the standard lovely Bungbox black and gold box.
The bottle itself is the horrid sailor bottle with the plastic inside that is supposed to help. I suppose at the end of a bottle this may help, but when it’s full its very inconvenient. That is just about the only bad thing about Bungbox ink though.
For this review I decided to ink up my new Pelikan M205 White with steel M nib. It has proven to be a consistent, wet writer just like my other two M205. I typically prefer gold nibs, but the Pelikan steel nibs have never disappointed me.
Line going down on CF paper:
There is a lovely silver sheen when used on Tomoe, but it isn’t as sheen-tastic as other Bungbox inks. The contrast the sheen has with the dark brown/red color is just gorgeous.
The bottle says the color is ruby, but I find that it is more a burgundy/brown. Perhaps in a drier pen it would show more of the red, but in this Pelikan I see mostly brown. I am dancing around the idea of getting chromatography paper…but that may open a whole different can of worms!
