Van Dieman’s Apple Cider on Kokuyo Perpanep Tsuru Tsuru

Ink

Apple Cider is part of the Harvest line which takes inspiration from the produce of Tasmania. It has an average flow.

The ink colour ranges from a light yellow to a honey yellow. The lighter parts reminds me of apple cider and the darker parts reminds me of apple cider vinegar. Sometimes it is hard to see what I am writing because the ink lays down light and darkens as it dries. Once dried, I find it fairly readable.

On Kokuyo Perpanep Tsuru Tsuru paper:

  • Shading: Yes
  • Sheen: Nil
  • Feathering: Nil
  • Bleedthrough: Nil
Writing Sample

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.
