It's teal week! I love teal-it's my favorite color so I've been looking forward to this week. First we are taking a look at Monteverde California Teal. I purchased my sample of ink from Anderson Pens.
California Teal isn't quite a teal, it's closer to a green that leans a little bit blue.
In large swabs you can see the beautiful dark pink sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 40 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was some feathering and bleeding.
I used a broad Pelikan M805 Ocean Swirl on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a lovely wet flow.
Overall, I enjoyed this ink. I really enjoy the flow of Monteverde inks, and they are one of the more affordable brands.
