May 2015 Ink Drop

Hooray! Ink Drop arrival and time to scan/photo/blog about it!

Now, I don’t know about you, but this month’s Ink Drop from Goulet Pen Company is one of the reasons I got into fountain pens. Just look at those colors!

This drop consisted of 5 inks with a flower/garden/springtime theme, called “Stop and Smell the Roses”.

The inks are:

  • Noodler’s Black Swan in English Roses
  • De Atramentis Hyacinth (scented)
  • Waterman Harmonious Green
  • Platinum Pigment Rose Red
  • Platinum Mix-free Sunny Yellow

I’m tying something different with the way I’ll display my inky reviews, I bought a new light bulb that is supposed to mimic natural daylight, but I’m still unsure of it as a good source for showing off colors ;)  So I’ve photographed them with my Canon Eos D60 with basic settings and then I’ve also scanned the Ink Drop with a very minimal level adjustment.

My favorites are Waterman Harmonious Green and De Atramentis Hyacinth (I don’t mind the scent and I’m sensitive to those inks!).

What are your favorite inks this drop? :)

(As with any ink scans and/or photos I try to be consistent in color. What you see on your monitor might not be the actual color, but it should be a fairly close representation.)
