L’Artisan Pastellier Grenat

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.

Grenat is nice ink that’s fairly well saturated compared to other inks in Callifolio line. It behaves mostly well, but it’s fair to note it caused some feathering while used on Leuchtturm1917. Scratchy Jinhao nib had some part in it, for sure, but other inks used in this pen and on this paoper didn’t cause as much feathering. On the other hand I haven’t experienced any feathering when I used the ink in other pens on variety of papers.
