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.
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.
L’Artisan Pastellier inks cab be bought in nice triangular glass bottles (40 ml), packs alu (60 ml) and small bottles (30 ml). The 36 colors are:
- Bleu Atlantique
- Bleu Azur
- Bleu Equinoxe 5
- Bleu Equinoxe 6
- Bleu Mediterrannee
- Bleu Pacifique
- Bleu Ultramarine
- Bonne Esperance
- Botany bay
- Gris de Payne
- Heure Doree
- Inca Sol
- Omi Osun
Bleu Equinoxe 5 is nice blue/black. It’s reasonably saturated, on Tomoe River it shows some nice sheen.
