This week we are testing out Bungubox inks. Let’s start the week off with Ebisu Gold, created for the first anniversary of the Bungubox store. I purchased my sample of ink from Vanness Pens. (After doing all of the photos I realized I misspelled Ebizu in the image above, but didn’t have enough ink left to re-do it, oops.)
Ebisu Gold is a cool-tone dark yellow.
Ink large swabs the ink looks more brown than gold, and there’s a slight green undertone.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 20 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was a little bit of feathering, and just a tiny bit of bleeding.
Ebisu Gold is a bit cooler and less saturated than Taisanji Yellow, but it’s a bit warmer and more saturated than Gold Antiqua. Click here to see the Bungubox inks together.
Overall, I think this ink is one of my favorite gold inks. It has a good flow, some interesting shading, and is a beautiful color.
