Papier Plume Carolina on my Mind

In honor of the Triangle Pen Show, Papier Plume has created a special ink: Carolina in my Mind.  This beautiful smoky teal ink will only be available at the Triangle Pen Show which opens on Thursday, June 10 and runs through June 13 this year. Any bottles remaining after the show will be available for purchase on the Papier Plume web site or in their brick-and-mortar shop.

Papier Plume Carolina on my Mind

Carolina in my Mind is a teal blue leaning slightly green with a good deal of shading. There is no noticable sheening but it does pool into a nice halo in spots on certain papers like the Col-o-ring card above.

On Tome River paper, the shading and range of color is evident. I confess this is one of those colors that I can seldom resist.

Because Carolina in my Mind was in a color range which is widely represented in my ink collection, I had WAY too many swatches to compare it to. Probably the most noticeable similarity is to the coveted Lake Michigan Winter from Papier Plume which was a Chicago Pen Show exclusive in 2019. If you missed getting a bottle of Lake Michigan Winter, than I would recommend jumping at the chance to pick up a bottle of Carolina in my Mind. The other ink that is very close is the Edelstein Aquamarine. The other inks shown above are either bluer, darker or lighter, or in the case of Colorverse Photon — greener but they show where Carolina in my Mind sits in the inky color spectrum.

  1. Love the color, but have so many similar it’s hard to justify another.
    Plus, it also reminds me of the limited edition game we are running into with so many limited editions coming out every year.
