Noodler’s Cayenne is a wonderfully rich reddish orange. Lots of potential for shading, too.
Have you tried this one? If not, you may want to try a sample of it.
I’m always on the look-out for new (to me) fun inks to try. I recently discovered Ink by the ML and maybe went a little crazy with samples.
L’Artisan Pastellier Classique Bouton D’or is a terrific yellow/orange. I would say that this swab scanned a bit darker than the color is in real life. Some people may find this one a bit too light to have a practical application – I, however, adore it and will be hunting down a full-sized bottle.
So, since we’re on the topic, which off-the-beaten-path inks do you adore?
J Herbin Orange Indien is a nice ink with decent color. It’s no match for my favorite orange, Diamine Pumpkin, though.
Because of all that’s been going on, I’m happily behind on ink swabs for the year. I’ll definitely get to 365 eventually – probably even more than that (so many inks, so little time). I also want to get back to full reviews here – I’ve been putting some mini reviews up on Instagram.
My sister said I should tell my “fans” #sorrynotsorry from her.
Noodler’s Dragon Catfish Orange is more of a peach-pink color in this swab. I have found that some of the highlighter inks fade a bit more easily than other inks – even with my samples always stored in a dark cabinet. Or maybe there has been a labeling problem – I’m really not sure what is going on here.
Here’s a link to Goulet Pens – I’d suggest checking out the reviews before buying this ink and even then I would never ever put this into a fountain pen. Never. Ever. I’ve seen first-hand the problem with Year of the Golden Pig – it arrived completely as expected and turned to goop pretty quickly. Scary stuff.
People like Private Reserve Copper Burst. I can definitely see why – the color is decent and there is a so much potential for shading. Unfortunately, when I wrote with this ink earlier this year, I found it to be super-duper crazy dry. Maybe I’ll try a fresh sample in a different pen one day and see if that makes a difference.
Tell me what you think of this ink? I’d love to hear all about your experiences with it.
Another ink from the Pelikan Edelstein line. This time – Mandarin. A bright, cheery orange. Still not enough to dethrone my much-loved Diamine Pumpkin, but this is a fantastic color and it writes quite well.
I’ve used and reviewed Amber from Pelikan Edelstein. You can see more pictures and read the review here to see how torn I am.
The swab of Stipula Sapphron is so pretty. So freakin’ pretty. But my review of it is so harsh.
Makes me want to try it again.
