I love the flow of Monteverde inks, so I have high hopes for Caribbean Blue. You can find it at Pen Chalet.
Caribbean Blue is a beautiful bright, light blue. I would call it a sky blue.
In large swabs there is just a little bit of 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 some feathering and bleeding.
I used an Edison Collier Persimmon Swirl with a medium nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, this is a beautiful ink. It performs well, has a nice flow and even some shading (it’s pretty affordable too).
