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
Inca Sol is quite pleasant ink. The color is warm, in wet and broad pens it leaves nice line and offers some shading. In dry pens lack of lubrication will influence writing experience in unpleasant way, especially if you write mainly on cheap copy paper.
On the other hand the ink is perfectly safe and won’t cause any problems in modern or vintage pens.
