Kyo Iro

Review: Kyo Iro Arashiyama

My thanks to Glenn for for the ink sample.

This is one of a set of five Kyo Iro inks. Arashiyama is a highly saturated shading orange ink. It goes from a deep saturated burnt orange to a light yellow-orange. It goes down wet and saturated but dries to a duller colour. Arashiyama is not my particular cup of tea in terms of orange inks. I usually prefer stronger and brighter oranges.

Review: Kyo Iro Moonlight of Higashiyama

My thanks to Glenn for the ink sample!

Kyo Iro is a Japanese ink series inspired by the sights of Kyoto. It’s sold by TAG Stationary. Moonlight of Higashiyama is part of a 5 colour ink series. It’s a dark orange / burnt orange ink that shades easily even in a Japanese fine nib. It goes from a strong red - brownish orange to a light brown. Personally it’s not my kind of brown or orange but it is definitely an interesting colour for the ink collection.
