Motivation is a dark red-orange.
In large swabs the ink turns darker where it pooled, but doesn’t 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: Low
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was a bit of bleeding and feathering in the flex nib as well as some feathering in the other nib sizes.
I used a Pelikan M600 Vibrant Orange with a medium nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a slightly wet flow.
Overall, it’s an interesting color, I think it would be a good color to use in the winter. It has a good flow and is well behaved.
