This week, Papier Plume released a new ink in their “New Orleans Collection” fountain pen ink line: Desire ($10 for 30ml bottle). Inspired by the legendary Tennessee Williams play “A Streetcar Named Desire” and the passion and desire of the characters, this ink captures their interpretation of a New Orleans Desire.
The ink is a red violet which reminds me of a wine or delectable fruit jam. It’s the color of velveteen curtains or a satin gown.
There is lots of shading and a range of hues in the shading from lavender to deep purple.
This ink is not a sheener but the shading is delicious.
