Review: Papier Plume Bayou Nightfall

My thanks to Ana of The Well Appointed Desk for the ink sample.

Papier Plume is an American stationary store. They have a wide variety of inks. Bayou Nightfall is one of them. It is a nice blend of green and blue. It hovers on the edge of the two colours. It is also understated enough for corporate use but it can look rather light depending on the nib size you use. I really enjoy this colour though Bayou Nightfall is a rather dry ink. Pick the pen you fill this ink with accordingly.

Review: Diamine Evergreen

My thanks to Louisa for the ink sample.

Diamine Evergreen is a surprisingly deep dark green with a slight hint of grey undertone. Shading is really hard to come by in most nib widths. Even in the 1.1mm stub, the shading is really subtle. Diamine Evergreen looks almost black unless you look closely. I’ll say this makes it a good alternative to standard black and blue inks for corporate use.

Review: Akkerman Gele Oker Van Frans

My thanks to Glenn for the ink sample.

I really enjoy this yellow ink. Most yellows tend to be too bright, too light to be read against white paper. But that’s not the case for Akkerman Gele Oker Van Frans. It shades well, going from orange in parts to bright yellow in others. This is sunshine in a bottle. Can you tell I really like this one a lot? This is going to be added to my collection. I’m officially poisoned.
