Ink Review #266: Graf von Faber-Castell Electric Pink


This week is reader request week! First we are going to look at Graf von Faber-Castell Electric Pink. I purchased my sample of ink from Anderson Pens


The color:

Electric Pink is a bright medium pink.


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

Feathering: None

Show through: Medium

Bleeding: None.

Other properties: Medium shading, no sheen, and no shimmer

On 20 pound copy paper there was a little bit of feathering but other than that the ink behaved well.

Ink swabs for comparison, left to right (top to bottom for mobile RSS): Akkerman #20 Pulchri Pink, Graf von Faber-Castell Electric Pink and Pilot Iroshizuku Momiji. 

Krishna Myrtle, Diamine Scarlet, and Lamy Vibrant Pink. Click here to see the pink inks together.


Longer writing: 

I used a broad Pilot Vanishing Point Crimson Sunrise on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow. There were some hard starts and skipping.


Overall, I like the color and the shading. I did have some issues with skipping and hard starts but other than that it's well behaved. Give it a try, you might love it.
