Topaz is a great spring orange. It’s more of a true orange than yellow-orange.
In large swabs you can see the lovely shading.
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 a bit of bleeding and feathering in the flex nib and a bit in the other nib sizes as well.
I used a Pelikan M600 Vibrant Orange with a medium nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a wet flow.
Overall, the ink is a lovely color and well behaved. It’s a great spring orange.
