Papier Plume 011 aka Papier Plume Eleven was created for Papier Plume’s eleventh anniversary and Fountain Pen Day. I was not able to get a bottle of this myself, so a pen friend was very kind and sent me a surprise bottle.
Eleven is a dark burnt orange.
In large swabs the ink looks almost brown.
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 feathering and bleeding in half of the nib sizes.
I used an Edison Collier Persimmon Swirl with a medium nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow, maybe just a touch dry.
Overall, it’s an interesting color, great as a winter orange. Since it’s a limited edition, the closest ink I have as an alternative is Montblanc Red Fox.
