Cosmic Swirl is a light, gorgeous purple with a slight warm tone on the Col-o-ring paper.
In large swabs on Tomoe River paper the ink looks a little cooler in tone-more blue. There’s just a hint of gold sheen.
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.
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper the ink feathered in all nib sizes and had a little bit of bleeding.
I used a Platinum 3776 Nice Lavande with a broad nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, I really enjoyed this ink. I did find myself wishing the flow was just a little bit wetter, but that’s just because I prefer wet inks. The color is beautiful and different from the purple inks I already have. I’m glad I have a full bottle because I think it’s an ink I’ll use often.
