Good inks set.
By Robert Sloan, A Proud Grandpa
from Russellville, Arkansas
Comments about Speedball Calligraphy Inks:
One of the things I really liked about this product is the way the little shallow ink bottle is stable and not too large to contain in a plastic ziplock bag for carrying along to events. I got a bottle of black along with a Crowquill nib and holder, was very pleased with the ink. Very pleased with how easily it cleaned off the nib too. So I ordered a set of five that includes black, white, gold, silver and pen cleaner, all in those same small convenient ink bottles. They are glass and do have a stable screw top lid.One warning, make sure if you pack them along in a bag that they're braced to stay right side up. The original one got knocked around a bit and leaked some, but the seal was good enough I didn't lose all the ink and the zip lock bag ensured nothing else in my art bag got ink on it. Be sure to pack it in a box or something that'll remain upright if traveling. Not a pocket item.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

... EVERYTHING YOU COULD WISH AND HOPE FOR, AND MORE ...
from Staunton, VA
... First and foremost, lightfast / archival, and waterproof capabilities are absolutely necessary for my work, and these terrific inks offer just that. Next, I look for colour range, intensity and aesthetic appeal, and again, these terrific inks fill the bill. I use them with nibs, fine brushline and area wash, and the effects I am achieving are wonderful. The colours also "get along well" with each other when I need to mix them to achieve a very specific tint, which vastly expands the scope of their use. Most of all, their transparency and waterproof aspect enables subtle multilevel overlays, which actuate mysteriously beautiful recombinant absorption-reflection effects. In English, these transparent, discrete multilayers are "backlit" by ambient light being reflected back up, and out from the white paper-canvas-light papyrus support ... and my past experiences with the mysteries of theatrical stage lighting design and application "made the connexion", and sure enough, the optical underdrive / backlighting reflection of the white support-- up through the discrete, transparent colour layers-- enables and actuates "living" shifts in colour intensities, and literal colour-changes, which are subtly mesmerising. Pure magic.

This is an excellent sample set. The colors are rich, with a nice variety. No loss of color when diluted with a small amount of water.

Really good inks
By Bob from Maryland
These are really good inks for calligraphy and drawing. They are a bit thicker than some other inks I have used and I like that quality. The colors are very good, especially the red and the gold.
I am a novice calligrapher and I was looking for a nice assortment of ink colors and that is what I found. The colors are vibrant and easy to use with a nice flow. I would buy again.
Very clumpy, almost dried out inks
from New York
The inks I received were extremely clumpy, and it appears that the seal on the lids of the inks were already off when I received the product. I had to do a lot of extra mixing to get the inks to properly mix and be the correct consistency.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
