Nicee! I really like this ink! It’s not exactly like the type of bright, corn syrup-ish blood you’d see in a movie, but more of an oxidized, dried-blood color. The exact shade is a cross between brown, maroon, and rusty-sienna (depending on the paper I’m using, the ink can lean more towards any of those 3 tints). The ink is also on the wet side & flows well, and is easy to clean. Once again I’m super-happy ordering from Truphae — thanks!
