I got this bottle of Apache Sunset as part of a mass order on the Singapore Fountain Pen lovers facebook page. Wow, the shading is just awesome. It ranges from light yellow to dark deep orange. However, this ink's dry time is really extended. I found that even if it is dry it is still slightly sticky and it would smear. This is a common problem for me when using Noodler's inks. I am considering diluting the ink before using.
