Parker Penman Emerald vs Graf von Faber-Castell Moss Green
I was planning to do this comparison for a while (about 8 months). Why did it take this long?
Good question....and it doesn't even matter I think.
Here it is
On the scans you can spot the difference somewhat easily, but to the naked eye they are very similar.
The Emerald is a more vivid green, and the Moss Green is just a bit more "mossy" I'd say. Haha
Both of them shade nicely and behave great, no problems at all.
I love the Maruman paper, because its very smooth, but it bleeds pretty easily with a wetter nib.
A little bling and a little moss (and some bleed-through, but as I said earlier its just the paper)
This is on some thinner notebook paper.
A bit of Clairefontaine.
They both can have a nice pinkish/purplish sheen!
GvFC Moss Green
Some extreme moss sheen remained from an ink drop.
Moss Green on top, Emerald on the bottom.
And a little surprising result (at least for me) from the Moss Green (on the left):
The is a whole lotta blue in the GvFC.
The Emerald also showed a little blue what can be seen on the previous scan.
I hope you found this interesting
