My bottle of Monteverde Rose Noir arrived this Monday - and am already totally in love with this ink and colour.
This little pools of noir where the ink shades......
The ink is very pen and paper dependent - from dark purple/burgundy on absorbent papers (hello, office papers!) to serious dusky pink on Rhodia.
Flow is good, the ink is not dry, but neither wet and even on low gr office paper no feathering!
As expected, dry time is around 20 sec on Rhodia - and as not expected - it is quite water resistant (it took a day to take it off my fingers...).
Here are 2 quick photos, same pen, different paper.
Sidenote: in reality, on Rhodia the live colour has a tad softer pink tone than on the picture.
I am afraid my pen pals will get all their letters in Rose Noir in the near future ... well, at least a page... this is too good and worth sharing!
