Well my friends, Shaylen Scrooge is actually feeling a bit Christmas-y this year. Given all the drama of the past few months, that in and of itself is a monumental feat. Typically, even under normal circumstances, the Holidays are a difficult time of year for me. It seems like it only reminds me of my lack of family, and finances. Alas, as 2010 rolls to a stop, I intend to Ho Ho Ho the halls with boughs of holly, or...something like that.
Anyway, in true Christmas fashion, I wanted to review this pretty green ink. I made out my Christmas cards last night, and used it for some of the personal notes I included. This is a very professional looking, well behaved ink. I know this ink has to flow exceptionally well, because the pen I am using it in has never worked for me before! It's just a crappy fountain pen from a cheap pen set, but now that it is working, it's not that bad!
It does dry pretty slowly, and is most certainly not water-proof. It's a very pretty color though, just spot-on for the rich, dark, emerald green you want for Christmas correspondence. At least, it is in my opinion. Here's a close-up of the swab:
If you're a fan of green, or looking for something to spice up your "blue or black ink only" life, I recommend this ink!
