Today's ink is Monteverde Capri Blue. I know I'm a day late for this, but I'm pretty sure this is the perfect blue for the fourth of July. Ink Journal was very kind and sent a sample over for review.
Capri Blue is a beautiful medium bright blue. It makes me think of the 4th of July.
In large swabs there is a little bit of bright pink sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 50 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was some feathering in every nib size as well as a bit of bleeding, so it's not an ink I would recommend for cheap paper.
I used a broad Pelikan M805 Vibrant Blue on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a lovely wet flow. I love the flow of Monteverde inks.
Overall, I love the flow of Monteverde inks, and Capri Blue has the same great flow. I love this color for summer, and it's a perfect match for my Pelikan M805 Vibrant Blue.
