This week we are going to focus on Monteverde inks, so today we are looking at Monteverde Rose Noir, From the Noir collection of 10 inks. I purchased my samples of ink from Goulet Pens.
Rose Noir is a medium purple with a red tone to it.
I was surprised by the bright green sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 35 seconds
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 medium Pelikan M605 White Transparent on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a lovely wet flow. I loved this pen/paper/ink combo.
Overall, I enjoyed this ink. It had a lovely wet flow and a nice color. I was surprised by the green sheen, which is a nice bonus. Give it a try, you might love it.
