Writing Sample


When I saw Vinta releasing new inks, of course I wanted to try them. I got samples of the rest, but this one I had a feeling I would fall in love with so I got the whole bottle. I was not wrong. It’s a very unique ink. It is brown and pink simultaneously and gold shimmer is never unwelcome.

Vinta can go ahead and try to make an ink I don’t like, but I don’t think they’ll succeed.
