Orange isn’t a color I am typically in love with, but its definitely a color that I want to love. It is a bright, happy color that really gives a little something extra to the pages of my notebook whenever I use it, but perhaps its my aversion to pumpkins? In any case, I felt like trying a new orange and had a small bottle of Monteverde Fire Opal on hand ^_^
For this review I decide to be matchy and use my Sailor Carrot.

Time-Lapse: Wait for it….
Notice anything intersting about the blob? Its alive! I have never seen an ink behave like that. It left behind raised clumps, so I reviewed the time-lapse and wow, it looks like the ink caught fire. Perhaps that is how it earned its name? Fire Opal! This only happened in super wet pools, but I am not sure if it only happens when its drying or if having it sit in a pen would produce such results as well? I didn’t really want to chance it with my precious carrot, so the ink has already been flushed from this pen. Have you ever experienced this? I am relatively new to the FP world and have not.
The color itself was fantastic, it has nice shading and a ghostly white sheen. It is not an overly bright orange and did not hurt my eyes at all. I did two separate blobs just to make sure it was not a fluke. Too bad about the clumps 😦
