L'Artisan Pastellier is french ink / calligraphy materials producers. They offer two lines of inks suitable for fountain pens: CALLIFOLIO (inks made for fountain pens, neutral PH and so on) andENCRES CLASSIQUES (not all of them may have perfect properties however I've tried most of them and had no issues in my fountain pens).

 

L'Artisan Pastellier inks don't get much love or attention here. I understand this as they're not easily obtainable. You may buy them directly from the producer's on-line/stationery boutique. The best thing to do is to organize group buy (I've done it twice last year for polish sountain pen board). It's nice thing to do - you get to meet a lot of people to exchange inks and the shipment cost becomes really friendly.

 

Olifants is quite nice however it was supposed to be shade of ocean blue mixed with green. I don't see a lot of green on writing samples, they are present while you lay thick layer of ink on the paper.

Sounds like it is happening to you too... their website is so misleading it would be better if they didn't put color samples on it at all.


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

Okay, what does it look like?  Can you post a picture?  I'd love a letter.  (Do you feel pounced upon?)

Thank you for the sample. I see you did feel pounced upon and pounced right back.  :)

Again, thank you for an accurate display of this ink.  I have long wondered about this ink brand, and am glad to see it reviewed in detail.

~ When inked in an M nib from the 1980s, L'Artisan Pastellier Callifolio surprised me.

 

It's a dark hue which shades on several types of paper.

 

Lovely!
