I completely misspelled this in the review! I’m on a roll with my bad spelling at the moment.
This is a bright jolly red that dries quickly. With an average kind of nib it’s hard to notice the gold sheen at all but with a big fat wet nib, or a dip pen, or a straw, perhaps, it really comes through and looks fabulous.
I found when I was cleaning out the pen I’d tested this in that the ink had stained the converter, so be careful what you use it with and don’t leave it in a pen too long. (I’d only had this ink in the pen a couple of weeks.)
Here I am doodling the Inkling.
Many thanks to the Fool With a Pen for sending me this sample.
