It's reader request week! Today's reader request is Colorverse #17 Vortex Motion from Season 2 Astrophysics. This ink comes in a box set with both a 65ml bottle and a 15ml bottle of the same ink. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Vortex Motion is a very dark grey with a heavy blue undertone.
In large swabs the ink appears more of a dark red with lots of black sheen. You can see the blue undertone seeping out on the right side.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering and bleeding in the larger nib sizes, M, B and Flex.
Overall, it's a nice dark grey with lots of black sheen, and pretty well behaved too.
