* Originally posted on my Instagram. Ink Review: Noodler's Ink - Zhivago Grade: 52.50% Paper Tested On: Norcom Composition, Staples 20lb copy paper, 85g Clairefontaine. Zhivago (Zg) is an interesting ink. At first glance Zg looks completely black, but if you look closely you'll see that Zg is actually a very dark green. You could even call it a green-black ink. This shade of dark green reminds me a lot of moss or water clouded with algae. Zg is a very smooth writing ink that flows easily through every pen I've put it in. It's very wet, and ideal for doing flex writing, even with a long drying time. It's too bad that it doesn't shade heavily. In my Noodler's Ahab it performs very well; but it's not until you put large amounts of ink on the page that you see some nice color variations. On cheap composition paper I have been very impressed with how little Zg feathers or bleeds. However, on 20lb copy paper, and even 85g Clairefontaine, it seems to feather and bleed heavily. Zg is listed as only been partially bulletproof. I've used Zg in ink washes, and the green portion lifts off the page pretty easily. What's left is a black color that resists removal well. Zg's a very subtle color, and I find myself liking it more each time I use it.
