Some of you will be mind blown that this is not a post about pinks or purples 🙂 I have stepped out of my shell a little and decided to give the Edelstein Jade green a go.
As always the bottle is fantastic! Beautiful, glass, and easy to fill from. If I had more room on my desk I think they would be on display.
So now on to the ink! I have bought green ink before, well just one, Diamine Sherwood green. I was chasing a green ink with sheen at the time, but did not much care for the color when used in a not overly wet pen.
On a side note if anyone is interested in trading for my Diamine Sherwood green please send me a note 🙂
This green on the other hand stole my heart! It’s what I would consider a sea green, a happy green, one that inspires me to draw cute things like the octopus in my ink journal lol.
As with all the other inks in the Edelstein collection I have tried, the Jade has lovely shading and a nice flow. I would consider this a very well behaved ink and would feel comfortable using it in any of my pens. It performed very well in my Bexley Imperial which has one of the finer F nibs in my collection.
The dry time is very good, was completely dry in a little over a minute. By that time I am usually ready to turn the page, so I don’t have to bother much with the blotter paper when using this ink.
I think green is still a very iffy color for me, but this has definitely made me want to try a few new ones. If anyone has recommendations feel free to comment/DM me ^_^.
