    Thanks .. not familiar with that brand, but sounds suitable to my purposes if the colors are what I'm looking for.

    Do these inks require extra cleaning of the pens compared to water soluble inks?

    Look in the fpgeeks ink review index. Our wonderful ink maven, Chrissy, did a review of all the Rohrer & Klinger Sketch Inks.

    All the Best.
    "What are moon-letters?" asked the hobbit full of excitement. He loved maps, as I have told you before; and he also loved runes and letters, and cunning handwriting, though when he wrote himself it was a bit thin and spidery.

    Thank you junglejim, you're very kind.

    I really enjoyed writing with the R&K SketchINKS, they were all very good.

    "Jule" would be an interesting colour for grading papers.

    Yes, I've already discovered that she seems quite knowledgeable about all things ink (to wit her info rich website) .. and everyone here seems so willing to share what they know. Glad I have a place ask questions and learn.

    So I got a bottle of Skrip Red (and a Jinhao 992) today .. thrilled with both. Also, I'm giving a quiz tomorrow, so I'll get to put both into action! Thanks again for the info.

    For an interesting red I like Noodlers Nikita. It works good for me on cheap paper and is a nice red that shades to a deep red and almost shades to red/black. Plus I got the 4.5oz bottle and it came with a free pen for about $18.

    For me it's great since it works good on pretty much any paper I've tried it on and it is just a nice red that's still different from a regular red.

    Thanks for the tip re Noodler's Nikita and the free pen, that does sound like a good deal. I'll have to check it out. Right now I'm rather pleased with the Skrip Red and the Jinhao 992 combo. In fact I liked the pen so much, I ordered another one

    For my grading, it's Sheaffer Skrip Red, Noodler's Red Rattler Eel, Diamine Red Dragon, or a green, or a bright blue.

    The pen is a cheap noodler's charlie eyedropper pen but it's free so I'm not going to complain. Here's a picture of it on some very cheap mead paper so it didn't really shade or anything but still no feathering. It does look darker in person than in the picture and that might have some Apache sunset mixed in which would brighten it up a little but to me it's a nice color that I like to write with a lot just for fun.
