EFNIR: Noodler's FPN Van Gogh Starry Night Blue

Extra Fine Nib Ink Review: Noodler's FPN Van Gogh Starry Night Blue


This is review #74 in my series.  Here's the YouTube video:


Post-recording notes: Couldn't really get the color right in the zoom - the ink photographs as black, basically, except the smear.  Cleaning was fairly easy, but the black component (the part that appears to be water-resistant) tried to cling to the inside of the section.  Pen flush or a cotton swab or similar may be needed to fully remove this component (or the next ink you use might wash it through unnoticed).


And here is a screen of the final result, for those not interested in the video:

Wonderful review as usual. 

 

This looks like truly a delightful beautiful colour and the name reminds of Don McLean's lyrical song, which gives it even more gravitas. :)

Great review!  I’ll comment that this ink I consider one of my best inks.  Works well in a variety of pens, and is the yardstick I measure other inks against. For my needs, it’s a near perfect ink. Thanks!

Thank you. I agree, this is a good one. I hope FPN are able to restock their inks.

Lovely review - thank you (as always). I'm still not tempted by Noodlers inks though!

FPN commissioned some inks? I missed that announcement....

Seems they did that a long time ago.

It was several years ago.  I think there were three different Noodler's exclusive colors -- this one, a brown and I forget what the last one was, something pink or magenta, IIRC.  I was still fairly new to FPN so I didn't get around to trying to order this one or the brown (which was called something or other Manuscript Brown).  And of course am kicking myself now.

They were sold as a fundraiser to help support the site.

Beautiful color, and you know I love your reviews, but long dry times rule this out for a southpaw overwriter.  I have enough trouble with 'normal' inks on TR paper!  

I found it had really fast dry time on my HP 24lb Laser paper, but on Rhodia and TR, yeah, awful. Anyhoo, it's a moot point since the inks ain't coming back soon.

Nice one. Unobtainium, so the only place to get a feel for it is in a review like yours. So, double thank you!

:)  You're most welcome.   I was fortunate to receive a sample of this as a gift from another FPNer.

This ink and the Dumas' Tulipe Noire are great. I'm fortunate to have a bottle of each.

 

I don't think we'll ever see them again. I say that because they haven't been available for several years now.

I've got Tulipe Noire, too, so I guess that'll be another torture video at some point. :D
