Ink Review 

Supplies Used:

Smear Test (Dry Time):

  • 10 seconds – Not a super fast dry ink like some of the other Noodler's inks but still pretty fast! 

Drip Test (Water Resistance):

  • High - Pecan is surprisingly water proof and you can tell that the darker base colors are close to the very water-resistant Noodler's black. On Tomoe River paper you can actually see some color separation as well.


  • Medium – Pecan is a bit on the darker side of orange and creeps closer to brown. It's got lovely shading but it reads as a more saturated ink than some of the other Noodler's oranges.

Ease of Cleaning:

  • Medium – It wasn't dificult but you can definitely tell this is a water resistant ink. It may take a minute or two longer to clean but it was not difficult.


  • High – Pecan has lovely shading that goes from a dark brown all the way to a bright orange. The shading is a bit more pronounced on this from the inclusion of the water-resistant properties.


  • High – Pecan feels a bit more free flowing and a touch drier than than Southwest Sunset or Habanero. The feel is close to a faster drying ink from Noodler's so expect the ink to absorb a touch faster on most paper. 

 Packaging and Aesthetics:

  • Like all Noodler's inks, this comes in a filled-to-the-brim 3 oz glass bottle, with a cute label illustrating the pecan tree, nuts and leaves.
