What the heck brought that on?
The second in this batch of ink reviews, for Noodler’s Black Swan in English Roses, that’s what!
For the last in this batch of ink reviews, I have chosen Noodler’s Tiananmen, which according to the label is a “Specialty Issue”. This isn’t the only Noodler’s ink that is so described, and I’ve already reviewed a few others, but I’ve only picked up on the description now. I’ve not been able to find out what “Specialty” actually means, but the inks from this series I’ve reviewed so far (Ottoman Azure, Ottoman Rose and La Couleur Royale) have all had attractive colours and been good performers.
The next in this batch is a bit of an oddity – a ink of the colour seen on the terra cotta warriors of China. It also reacts under UV light, although I have no means of testing that at the moment.
For the last in this batch of ink reviews I have chosen Noodler’s Ottoman Rose. I originally bought this ink as I thought it would be the natural partner to Ottoman Azure. Pink or rose inks would not normally come high up my list, but the completist in me wouldn’t let me buy one without the other.
