For my birthday this year, my mom bought me a bottle of Noodler’s Turquoise. I love teal inks, so I was hopeful this would be a good one.
Turqoise is between blue and green, a bit more on the green side. I’d call it a greenish-teal.
In large swabs the ink looks more blue.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 20 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper the ink feathered in all nib sizes and had a little bit of bleeding.
Turquoise is closest to Colorverse Pale Blue Dot. Click here to see the Noodler’s inks together.
I used a Pelikan M805 Ocean Swirl with a broad nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a wet flow.
Overall, out of all the Noodler’s inks I’ve tried, I think this one is the most well-behaved. It’s a great color, has a nice wet flow and has an average dry time.
