Today's reader request is Colorverse #8 Mars Curiosity, from Colorverse Season 1 Spaceward. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Mars Curiosity is a medium, slightly dusky red.
In large swabs it has a beautiful brown sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was some feathering and just a little bit of bleeding.
I used a medium Pelikan M800 Renaissance Brown on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow. There was some nib creep.
Overall, I like the sheen this ink has, but there was a fair amount of nib creep.
