I write on copy paper a lot, as well.  Noodler's Eel Blue doesn't seem to feather, but it needs a bit of extra dry time.  Higgins "Fountain Pen India" ink behaves well.  Just make sure you choose the fountain pen ink, only.  


Good luck.

Also, consider diluting the BBK with distilled water.  (Don't do this in the full ink bottle).  BBK performs much better on recycled papers when it is diluted.



I take it back. I'm sorry.  The correct answer is always buy more ink.  :)

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
