My first review

Hello, I am very new to fountain pens and inks, and mainly want to use them with watercolor washes. I wanted something besides black (I am using Noodlers waterproof black). So I meant to pick "Pecan", it looked pretty and I love to eat pecans! But I must have confused my order because was I got was Noodlers Golden Brown. So I am happily using it. It is definitely more golden than brown. I am using it in a Pilot Parallel pen and it is very smooth and nice to use. Though it is not waterproof, but that's Ok, I'll use it for other stuff. Thanks for your company, I love your videos. Mary Lou Surgi

I love, love Goulet Pens !!

And I just love the Noodler's Golden Brown. I must have several bottles on hand. It has wonderful shading. And Goulet is the best place to order. Always fast shipping and great care. Thanks again Goulet!!!

Lighter in Person

Pen looks more yellow than in person. Other than that, nice ink, as always from Noodlers.

Golden Brown

I wrote a review not long ago and gave this ink one star because when I first wrote with it the color on paper was orange as I stated. But after not using the ink for a while, I gave the bottle a little shake and it became the golden brown I was looking for. So now that I know this little trick I am pleased with this ink and the color that appears on paper. It can be a heavy shading ink where the orange can be visible, but that is OK. It is a well-behaved ink and I will enjoy writing with it now.

I LOVE THIS INK! I'm STILL in the honeymoon phase of this ink, and I don't think it'll ever go away. It's a shading ink, so it's automatically a plus. The pinnacle of inks, if you will; and it perfectly compliments my White RG 580. I've learned that I need to shake the ink to get it to the consistency I want because, and I'm not going to lie, when you don't shake the ink, Golden Brown looks similar to Apache Sunset.

FAQs about Bottled Ink

Which pens can accept this ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Any of these fountain pens will work with bottled ink. Typically, as long as the pen can be filled with a converter, has a built-in filling mechanism like a piston, or can be eyedropper-filled, it can accept bottled ink.

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.

My ink smells funny, is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Generally yes! Ink does not smell good- it usually has a chemical smell, along with other scents such as sulfur, rubber, chemicals or even paint. However, as long as you’re not seeing anything floating in the ink, it should be safe to use.

It’s cold and my ink froze; is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes, frozen ink will not hurt your pen (after it’s thawed of course!) The issue with ink freezing is primarily a concern because certain glass bottles could break as the water-based ink expands, and then you’d have a mess!

What is your return policy for bottled ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B
