It's the last day of Monteverde week, so we are finishing the week with Monteverde Mulberry Noir, from the Noir collection of 10 inks. Vanness Pens was very kind and sent a sample over for review.
Mulberry Noir is a medium purple.
I was surprised by the bright green sheen, similar to the sheen Monteverde Rose Noir has.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 70 seconds-this ink actually took pretty long to dry.
Water resistance: Medium-a lot of the ink washed away but you might still be able to read what it said.
Show through: Medium
On 20 pound copy paper there was a little bit of feathering but other than that the ink behaved well.
I used a broad Pelikan M805 Ocean Swirl on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a wetter flow.
Overall, it's a nice ink. It has a wetter flow, which was nice, but the dry time was really long. Give it a try, you might love it.
