Ink Review: Taccia Ukiyo-e Inks

Ink Review: Taccia Ukiyo-e Inks

By Jessica Coles Taccia seems to be on the ball lately with new ink. Recently I did an overview of their Lip color line of inks, each based on classic shades of lipstick. Today I am showing the Ukiyo-e line of ink (I am told this translates to “picture of the floating world”); a collection…

12 Days of Inkmas: Day 12 – Sailor Studio 264

By Jessica Coles I have written several posts about the beautiful Sailor Studio inks over the past few months. These tiny bottles pack so much color inside, plus there are 100 inks in the line! These inks are incredibly fun to collect as well – the minimal packaging and color-coded labels look great lined up…

12 Days of Inkmas: Day 3-TWSBI 1791 Part 2: Orange and Sky Blue

A lineup of six new inks that are all different shades of blue (although to be fair, they include turquoise and teal in the “blue”). Why would anyone need that many shades of blue? That was my first thought about the line, however, once I…

Ink Review: Sailor Studio 442

By Jessica Coles The Colorado Pen Show took place only a few days ago and I was very happy to see the Dromgoole’s table at the show. In fact, I was often seen browsing through the large ink shelves they had set up. One ink that was sadly missing from the shelves was Sailor Studio since…

Ink Review: Sailor Studio 140

By Jessica Coles I doubt it’s a secret that I love the new Sailor Studio inks. The downside to this love is the sheer number of them – 100. At the rate I’m going, it’s going to be at least another 2 years before I’ve reviewed all of them, but I’m committed to trying. This…
