The Fairytale line of inks from Vinta has been released – a beautiful group of five inks with plenty of shading and sparkle as well. Rather than explain too much about these inks, let’s get to the photos instead. I received a set of samples from Vanness where they are priced at $3.50 for a 4mL sample or $15 for a 30mL bottle.
Lakambini has a base layer close to Sailor Peache with pink sparkle.
Vinta Pangtangi was a difficult color to match – in certain lights, it looks very close to ColorVerse Anti-Matter Glistening or even Mermaid from Dream Ink. But the base ink color is absolutely closest to Bookbinders Ground Rattler with gold sparkle on top.
Vinta Saysay may be the darkest sparkling ink that I have seen in a while. It is a blue-based black with silvery-blue sparkle.
Vinta Salimbay is a wonderful blue-purple complete with multi-chromatic shading and purple sparkle.
Last in the Fairytale line is Lakbay – a light ocean blue with pink-copper sparkle.
On Tomoe River paper, the Fairytale inks are beautiful at any angle:
But the five inks are amazing when the light hits them just right:
Cosmo Air Light paper shows the Fairytale inks differently:
I love the color combinations in these five inks – especially Salimbay and Lakbay. The sparkle in the Fairytale inks can spread from the ink to other surfaces – hands, paper, blotting paper, face. However, I do believe sparkle is extremely under-represented in everyday life, so that’s not a negative!
