“Foggy Bottom” Ink Review


Foggy Bottom

I purchased this ink,
To be honest, I think
For the picture adorning the bottle.
It’s a cuttle with quill,
And it gave me a thrill
In a way that–in truth–not a lot’ll.
With the ink smoothly flowing
My pleasure is showing
(I’ve never been one to be subtle)
To conclude my review
It’s a beautiful hue:
“Foggy Bottom”–approved by the Cuttle!

Ok, so the truth is, I did not purchase it; it was a gift. But other than that, I am loving this ink. It’s by the good people at Organics Studio, who also make a neat indelible black ink named for Charles Darwin. I can see why I was given this ink–just take a look at the label!

    But how can you strike fear in the hearts of wingnuts with a nickname like “Cuddles”?

  2. Cuttlefish says

    Hmmm… good point.

    “Darth Cuttle”
    “Cuttlezilla”
    “Inkmonster”

    Y’know, maybe there just aren’t any good options.

    Dang, that’s pretty. I have a full bottle of a brown Noodler’s that is just a little too dark brown – I was looking for something more exactly like just what you’ve shown here.

    Carlie, I wish I were a more experienced fountain pen user–I’d be able to tell you how flowing, or not, or whatever… but I can’t. I do know that I have seen some reviews of this ink here and there, so (if I can find it, anyone can) they are easily located. I really like the color (I’ve been grading with it all day), and for me, it works nicely. Had a bit of a problem with flow until I realized that I was trying to work against gravity–a quick change of location and everything was great.

    What a lovely portrait of you!
    But ‘Cuddles’, I agree, must go.
    Something more dramatic, like ‘InkStorm’, might do.
    As long as all this cuttle-ink continues!
