We are almost done with teal week, which has been lovely. Teal seems to be a reader favorite color. Today's teal is Diamine Soft Mint. I've had a bottle of this for quite a while since I love the color. I purchased my bottle of ink from Goulet Pens.
Soft Mint is a gorgeous light mint color. It's not quite blue but not quite green either, almost a seafoam.
In large swabs the ink has lots of shading and depth.
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 bleeding.
I used a broad Conklin Duragraph Forest Green on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, I adore this ink. It's a gorgeous color, well behaved, and has some lovely shading, perfect for springtime.
