Some of you may know that I am a fountain pen ADDICT. Well, okay, a lover. I'm too cheap to be an addict, and there is NOWHERE to find fountain pen around here! Anyways, I got lucky and found some J.Herbin ink in a pen shop in San Francisco. The one I chose was 'Violette Pensee'. Sounds fancy, right? Turned out pretty cute, too!
All testing was done on my one Rhodia N.19 bad. Also my only one! I need new ones but they are nowhere to be found in my area!
Here's a swab test. I forgot to label them, but from top to bottom, its one, two, and three swabs with a q-tip.
Bleedthrough on paper:
Not too bad for a swab test, right? I would assume it would do great on other fountain pen friendly papers, but as this is my only one, this is all you get!
I thought a video might be best for showing everything in a short version. Unfortunately, Ms.Blackberry was pulling an attitude and I am still learning how to use her!
And finally, the bleedthrough from the writing up close!
