An Orange Sunset From Iroshizuku Ink10/21/2010
Do you like a seasonal palette? If it’s autumn in your part of the world, Iroshizuku Yu-Yake would be a lovely burnt orange ink for this time of year. Now here’s the really sweet part. With my Namiki Falcon semi-flex, it even produced shading and a little bit of outlining. What’s not to like?
Yes, I know it’s a premium ink and pricey which places it outside the comfort zone of more than a few inkophiles. If you want a less expensive ink with many of the same properties, Noodler’s Apache Sunset might do. It is a bit more red and dries more slowly but it is a worthy orange, too. In fact I use it nearly as often as Yu-Yake. Both suit the season perfectly.
