It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Thanks to Goulet Pens latest Ink Drop, even my pens can look a bit more like Christmas. The DeAtramentis Fir ink even smells a bit like fir trees so its even starting to smell like Christmas around here!
This writing sample above is a bit more color correct (white balance with white paper is a PAIN!). The Diamine Matador and Noodler’s Green are as true to Christmas red and green as you could probably get. The Rohrer & Klingner Verdura is an elfish green and DeAtramentis Oriental Red reminds me of red fireplace bricks. DeAtramentis Fir is muted green with that wonderful fir tree smell!
The holiday colors were tested dipping a vintage Esterbrook fountain pen so I have fairly true-to-life performance.
In all the holiday hullabaloo, I forgot to post the November Ink Drop colors which were all reminiscent of autumn leaves. My favorite was the Noodler’s Cayenne. I must be in a red ink mood. I tested these with a flexible nib dip pen so some of the colors bled a bit more than I suspect they would in a fountain pen.
I am still using the same Miquelrius grid notebook that I’ve used to test all my other pens and inks for the past year or so.
