    Default Ink that stays put

    Some inks come off the paper & transfer to desk tops or fingers easier than others. Lately, iíve been having trouble with a tiny bit of Califolio Ultramarine that is ending up as spots in the house. Itís been getting me into trouble with my wife.

    What are some inks that donít wander as much?

    One of the reasons that most of my inks are iron galls. I write quickly, scrawl is probably a better term, and I can't abide smudging. IG inks are like a cheap boxer, they go down and stay down.
    Vintage. Cursive italic. Iron gall.

    The ultimate non-wanderer ink for me is Platinum Carbon Black. It's not exciting, but absolutely every bit of it stays put.

    Usually it's the highly saturated inks that give trouble in this regard, which is one of the reasons I'm not a fan. Don't usually associate L'Artisan Pastellier inks with saturation though, but maybe this one is an outlier?
