Monteverde Blue Velvet Cake CRV



Recommended Posts

TSherbs

I love velvet cake!

 

This entire photo is the same Monteverde "Sweet Life" series ink: Blue Velvet Cake.  I don't really have any other ink like it. This photo isn't great, but Amber's writing actually has some red sheen in it. My writing, with a very wet nib, also produced red sheen (once it dried), but only in the outlines of the letter writing, not at all in the swatch that I made (also with the same nib).

 

pen: Jinhao Centennial

nib: Jinhao bent "fude"

paper: Tomoe River??

Huh, I didn't actually know that there is such thing as Blue Velvet Cake. I just Googled it and apparently it's a thing.

 

This ink looks like Herbin Bleu des Profondeurs, maybe?

 

I have a one of those Jinhao fude nibs in a pen and, though I haven't found a use for it that I like so far (probably more to do with my skill using it, than anything), they do seem to show colors well!

 

Thanks for the CRV!

Yes it is TR paper (the old stuff).  @PithyProlix I think it is darker then JHBdP, but I couldn't swear to that.

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

Oh, I could compare that. :)  (Updated my list of possible inks.)

I just posted my Co-Razy-View of this ink:

Thanks for sending these - they're all quite unique to me, so I'm enjoying the challenge of finding comparison inks. :)
