When my Pelikan M800 Renaissance came I puzzled over what to put in it. Do I go with something traditional like Smokey Quartz or shake it up? Coincidentally I received a bottle of ink with an octopus on it and decided…shake it up! No matching today 🙂
Ink Swab Comparisons:
On TR paper this color is a really beautiful deep magenta. It has sheen but it is very subtle even on the blob. I encountered a bit of it on regular writing but not enough to justify buying it for sheen alone. It isn’t a super wet ink but that probably contributes to its excellent shading quality. No regrets here!
I leave you now with a photo of dessert from yesterday’s HIPPO Pen Meet #2 ^_^
