Smoke on the Water is a pretty dark teal with lots of sheen.
In large swabs you can see a little bit of the base color and a lot of the pretty pink 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 feathering and bleeding in the large nib sizes.
I used a Pelikan M600 Turquoise with a broad nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, I was rather impressed with this ink. It’s a monster sheener but I didn’t have any trouble with it smearing. It’s a great option if you are looking for a sheeny teal ink.
