It’s time to tackle some orange inks. Today’s orange is Papier Plume House of the Rising Sun, part of the New Orleans collection. The ink comes in 30ml bottles. I purchased my sample of ink from Vanness Pens.

In large swabs there isn’t a lot of shading, but the ink drops show a small halo of yellow around the edges.

Overall, it’s a lovely color for the fall, dark orange with some lovely shading.
