Van Dieman’s Zucchini on Life Schöpfer

Ink

Zucchini is from the Harvest line which takes inspiration from the produce of Tasmania. The ink colour is a dark green that resembles the outside of a zucchini. The ink has an average flow.

On Life Schöpfer paper, there is shading, no sheen, no feathering and no bleedthrough.

Ferris Wheel Press Three Steamboats on Life Schöpfer

Ink

Ferris Wheel Press Three Steamboats is from the Freshly Squeezed Collection.

The ink looks like a minty green to me. It is a lovely colour with shading and no sheen. However, in writing, I find that it often lays down too light a line and the high contrast of the shading means I have to put more effort in reading. Flow-wise, it is on the dry side. This ink would probably do better in the wetter nibs.

Birmingham Pen Company Life

Birmingham Mountain Laurel on Life Schöpfer

Ink

Birmingham Pen Company is a small family-run business that makes fountain pens and fountain pen inks. While the company started with fountain pens, it seemed their focus is now on inks.

Mountain Laurel is part of the Crisp Formula collection where the inks were designed to work well on a variety of papers. This ink is a very pale dusky pink when wet and dries to a slightly darker shade. I believed the colour was inspired by the mountain laurel flowers which ranges from white to pink. In wet nibs, you might notice a halo, which looks like a dark green thin outline, around the strokes.

The ink has an average flow. There is shading and no sheen. On Schöpfer, I didn’t notice any feathering or bleedthrough.
