Pretty and fun, in broad strokes

I tried these inks on Leuchtturm 80g/m2 paper, with a brush and a Speedball #512 nib. The colors and combinations are pretty. And sure enough they change before your eyes, though some are much faster than others. I tried writing with the inks, and got feathering and some bleeding. I then laid down swathes of the inks with a brush and let them dry -- YOU MUST LET THEM DRY COMPLETELY -- and then applied the color-changing agent with brush and pen. With the brush it worked nicely; with the pen I got feathering, and couldn't achieve a clean, fine line. I think it is good for art, if you keep its limitations in mind.

Monteverde Color Changing Inks Sample Set

What magic is this?I sampled using a Speedball dip pen; A5, B5, or B6 on Rhoda 80 gsm. This is my general notes. I found the inks to be somewhat aggressive with both ghosting and bleeding to the next page. The main colour is water proof in that you can read what you wrote if you spill water. The secondary colour not so much. There is still a lot of ink movement, so not so good if you are also using watercolours. The yellows showed well for drawing but are lost in writing. The red and one pink appeared orange to me. How often I dipped my pen indicates I may have flow issues in some of my fountain pens. I'm not sure about the Ink Color Changer as I used a cotton swab on my samples. It is an interesting idea and I will watch to see if Monteverde comes out with colours that I am more fond of.

FAQs about Ink Sample Package Sets

How do I fill my fountain pen from an ink sample vial? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It depends on the fountain pen's filling mechanism. 

Check out our blog post on How to Fill a Fountain Pen from an Ink Sample Vial.

How much writing can I do with 2ml of ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It really depends on how big or small you write, and the nib size you’re using. We find that usually you can get 2 good fills for a typical converter with our Ink samples, or one good fill with a piston-filling pen. How much writing depends on you more than anything else, so we recommend experimenting with different nib sizes to find what works best for you. 

What is shading, sheening, or shimmering ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Shading - A common (and often desired) result of a fountain pen ink pooling in certain parts of a letter when writing, so that the color and saturation of the ink appears different within a single letter or word. This characteristic cannot be achieved with ballpoint or rollerball pens and is a very appealing aspect of fountain pen use for those particularly drawn to all the pretty ink colors.

Sheen - Characteristic of a fountain pen ink where when ink pools another color can be seen on top of the ink, especially when looked at in different light angles using certain paper types. There is no way to guarantee an ink will sheen, but using a larger nib on a pen will help obtain sheening results in your writing.

Shimmering - Fountain pen ink that has small particles of glitter mixed in.

Is shimmering ink safe to use in fountain pens? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes! Shimmering ink is a great way to add some flare to your writing. We have found that a larger nib will showcase more shimmering particles while writing, but you can use any nib size and shimmering ink. All the ink we sell is safe for use in fountain pens.

You can learn more in our blog: How to Write with Shimmering Ink.

Can I substitute a color in this set? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

We are unable to make substitutions in any of our ink sample sets.
