Van Dieman’s Pink Fairy Orchid on Midori MD

Ink

Pink Fairy Orchid is part of the Tassie Seasons collection. It represents spring.

Pink Fairy Orchid is a flower that can be found in the southern part of Australia as well as Tasmania. Like the flower that inspired the name, the ink is a pink which ranges from light to bright due to shading. Due to the light shading, I find it takes more effort to read. This ink has an average flow.

On Midori MD paper, there is no shading, no sheen, no feathering and no bleedthrough.
