I’ve always been a big fan of the way ink colors look on off-white or ivory paper and I’m glad to know that some of the folks from week 1 of The Paper Project discovered that they liked it as well.
“…first time trying ivory paper and I liked it a lot! I noticed that it really brought out some of the fountain pen ink colors”
“I agree…that the ivory paper of the Rhodia 80th really made the colors of the inks (gels and ballpoints) pop.”
“I was surprised with how the colors I like to use (relatively muted greens and greys) actually looked nice on the Rhodia 80th Anniversary ivory/grey/graph paper.”
“…although I prefer a lighter ivory paper, warm-toned inks look great on this one!”
“I really love Ivory paper, my absolute favourite in the lot. It enhances fountain pen ink colors.”
What do you think about using colored inks on ivory paper? Does it enhance the way the ink looks, or do you find it distracting? When choosing inks, do you think about how they will look on a warmer toned paper?
