Writing Sample


I think this ink is killer. It has such lightweight shimmer and is a great pumpkin colour. I tend to think all orange inks look similar, but this one is definitely a less burnt orange than Herbin Cornaline d’Egypt, which is my favourite orange ink hands down. I wouldn’t buy this is a big size, but I will enjoy the sample while it lasts.
