Finally started working through the amazing samples that I have received, one of which is made by a company that I have never tried before called Bookbinders. They are a company based in Australia but not as widely distributed as Robert Oster. The sample I have is called Blue Coral Snake. I’m totally a fan of snakes, mostly the stuffed animal and the artistic variety rather than the live action ones, so I was interested to try an ink from this line.
For this review I decided to ink up my Pelikan M600 M Nib which was finally out of Sweet Love Pink.
Ink Blob (HDR and Normal Light):
This ink has a dry flow, but the M600 is a very wet pen. If this was not the case I may not have been satisfied with the experience. Despite that, it is very slow to dry. It has a lovely red sheen under the wettest conditions and reminds me a little of BMW Blue. The shading is just gorgeous, and now I want to try the rest of these inks. I think I might be ready for a full bottle…
I leave you now with my Valentine’s Day IG quote, totally true right?
