    Thank you for doing this review! This is a lovely ink. I am grateful that I still have a small amount left.

    No problemo! I'm still trying to get my hands on a bottle of "Vibrant Green" to see if it really is as bold as "Amazon" is.

    You mention how wet Amazon ink is. What paper did you use for the review and how long was the dry time?

    There was a bottle of Amazon for sale on ebay the last time I searched earlier this week. (May I suggest you compare the colour with Kaweco Palm Green?)

    The paper used was Staples Copy Paper 90GSM, the dry time for the ink was right around 10 seconds amazingly.
    I have "Kaweco Palm Green" also and it is vibrant, though darker than the "Amazon" ink...which never lost it's vibrancy when pooled or laid down heavily.
    The primary negative trait I found with "Palm Green" was that it does not shade at all.
