Dust Storm is a brownish-yellow with some shading.
In large swabs on Tomoe River paper the ink has some pretty shading.
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
Feathering: Low-there was some feathering in the flex nib on Rhodia and Leuchtturm.
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper the ink feathered in the all nib sizes and had a lots of bleeding in the flex nib too.
I used a Kaweco Al-sport Anthracite with a medium nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow but it didn’t get along well with this medium nib-after about a paragraph the ink felt dry and I primed the feed a bit. This was interesting since the ink had an average flow in all the other pens I tried it in.
Overall, it’s not my favorite Colorverse ink. There’s some feathering, bleeding and it didn’t get along well in every pen I tried it in. I’m also not super crazy about the color, so it’s not an ink I need a full bottle of.
