Spring Ink Colors

Stephanie

For some of our faithful fountain pen fans, a change of season means swapping out ink colors. Which colors say “Spring” to you? Maybe the delicate blue of J Herbin’s Blue Myosotis or the subtle pink of Rose Tendresse?

Sometimes I get in a funk of using black and blue with the occasional purple tossed in for variety. It’s not like I don’t have a plethora of inks to choose from, but I think I can get somewhat lazy with flushing and cleaning my pens. I think now might be a good time for a thorough spring pen cleaning and an even better time to try filling them with a variety of bright spring influenced colors.

  1. I just ordered some J Herbin Orange Indien and Lierre Sauvage; orange is becoming one of my favorite colors because it reminds me of sunlight, and the green reminds me of grass, so I guess my mind’s already on spring colors. I think I’d add Rose Cyclamen to the list too.

  3. I’ve been using Pelikan Edelstein Mandarin lately for underlining text in documents instead of using a hi-liter. The mellow but vivid orange, with just a touch of antique in it, is unfathomably more interesting to view, which is a big help when the text in question is unspeakably dull and colorless.

  5. I love the flamingo color of the Rusty Anchor, but nothing is more soothing than the lighter blues, greens, and lilacs when the fans are straining to help the A/C keep up.
