L’Artisan Pastellier is french ink / calligraphy materials producers. They offer two lines of inks suitable for fountain pens: CALLIFOLIO (inks made for fountain pens, neutral PH and so on) and ENCRES CLASSIQUES (not all of them may have perfect properties however I’ve tried most of them and had no issues in my fountain pens).
L’Artisan Pastellier inks don’t get much love or attention here. I understand this as they’re not easily obtainable. You may buy them directly from the producer’s on-line/stationery boutique. The best thing to do is to organize group buy (I’ve done it twice last year for polish sountain pen board). It’s nice thing to do – you get to meet a lot of people to exchange inks and the shipment cost becomes really friendly.
Bouton d’Or is nice orange and I could finish my review here. The ink is well behaved, not too dry, not too wet. The lubrication isn’t as good as in Sailor inks but acceptable. The color is enjoyable and warm and I believe the ink is well priced.
