Gorgeous Green

This is probably my earliest favorite non-shimmer, non-sheen ink. Goes down dark and cool, warms and brightens as it dries. The shading is absolutely gorgeous, clearer with broader nibs. I look for an excuse to use my pen when I've got this ink in use. The orange draws my eye in the shading, and I'm always eager to see the results as it dries down. Not sure how well my picture will show up here, but the y, connected d, either s and i are the clearest examples of shade variance. Shown using Monteverde Regatta 1.1mm Stub, on a Rhodia dotpad.

Perfect woodsy green

I wanted a green without.a hint or blue or turquoise and this green fits the bill perfectly. It shades beautifully with my stub nib.

Love this ink

I love this ink. I initially got it in the 8 color mystery ink sample bundle, and fell in love with this ink almost instantly. It is a gorgeous green that has lovely shading on almost any paper. I find it is a cooler green than the one presented in the picture, with less of the brown tone, but it is a gorgeous color nonetheless. It dries fast, writes wet, and is a joy to write with.

Great color, dries fast. Perfect for a lefty.

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.

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

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
