Ink Review #82: Nemosine Alpha Centauri

NemoAlphaCentauri - 5.jpg

Nemosine Alpha Centauri is a gorgeous purple. Nemosine is still a pretty new brand to me, but so far they have been great. Alpha Centauri is the closest star system to the solar system. I used a sample for this review, but bottles are 35 ml. You can find samples here, or bottles at Goulet Pens.

The color...

Alpha centauri is a medium purple.

I'm in love with the sheen this ink gives off in ink drops, I just wished it showed up more in writing as well. 

Dry time: Alpha Centauri dried completely in 30 seconds. 

Water resistance: The ink had medium water resistance.

Feathering: Alpha Centauri only feathered on Baron Fig paper, but did great on the other papers.

Show through: Alpha Centauri had low to medium show through on all of the papers.

Bleeding: Alpha Centauri only bled on Baron Fig paper, but did well on the other papers. 

Other properties: Alpha Centauri had low shading, and low sheen

Ink swabs for comparison, left to right (or top to bottom for RSS): Diamine Damson, Nemosine Alpha Centauri, and Sailor Jentle Shigure. Damson seems like it's the closest to Alpha Centauri. To see the Nemosine ink swabs together, click here

Longer writing:

I used a broad Pilot Vanishing Point Twilight on Tomoe River paper. There is a little bit of shading, but no sheen.

Overall, this ink is pretty well behaved. I really like the color.
