Noodler's (Fpn) Dumas Tulipe Noire

Recommended Posts

FPN has some of it's own custom inks, made for them by Nathan Tardiff, aka Noodler's. As always, Noodler's inks have some kind of theme going on with the name, and this one is named after Alexandr Dumas' famous 1850 novel Tulipe Noire. Because it's written in French, it's especially famous in France. :)

 

Since there is no such flower as a Black Tulip, this ink follows the purple tulip. It's a really great "plum" color. There's really great handling with this ink. It's possible that in the right pen and on the right paper it will shade very well, but I've only gotten "ok" shading. But it's still a nice ink.

 

As usual for me, paper used was MvL=Mohawk via Linen, Hij=Hammermill 28 lb inkjet, TR=Tomoe River.

 

This pic I think shows the ink as a bit darker than it really is. And to much blue.

This pic is better at representing the color.

Somewhat water-resistant. Due to the dye load, some washes away, but enough is left to be readable.

Now with or without any differences in our charges (especially due to your drop on the kitchen towel), I see it like this:

http://i654.photobucket.com/albums/uu264/peli46/Tulipe%20and%20Swan.jpg

 

That's on Rhodia 90 g/m2 paper and on my paper towel (not moist or wet or wetted later). Both colors here (at least on my screen, har har) look just like the original on paper (to my eyes).

Interesting and/or FWIW: the Tulipe is is not only very dark but also very saturated. The Black Swan in Australian Roses is not only much lighter, redder and quite unsaturated, it t is also much wetter than the Tulipe.

All in all, I find the Tulipe a much neater, fuller ink with more pizzazz. That swan is in comparison boring (IMO). As re charges: my Tulipe is 2 or 3 years old and my swan is from April 2012. Maybe it should be in an old folk's home.

My bottle of the Tulipe is from 2015, and it's not as dark as yours. It is closer to your BSiAR, but still darker.

Thanks for the comparison, lapis. Though I think the BSiAR I have is more purple, this is a great reference point for Dumas.

On the "to-buy" list is goes!

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
