As I mentioned here, R&K Verdigris is a great color, but it also gives me a bit of a headache. It feathers very easily, while most people have no problem with it. Recently, Zeynep of Write to Me Often felt a bit frustrated with her newly acquired Falcon with Verdigris combination, so I decided to conduct a "scientific" experiment with the same ink/ pen combination (probably the most scientific I can ever be).
Here is the result:
|On normal 20-lbs printer paper|
The feathering and bleedthrough is entirely expected.
|Rhodia multicolor paper|
Each letter has a bit of fuzzy outline, and some bleedthrough on the back of the paper.
|On Miquelrius grid-rule notebook|
Overall, the paper holds up well. Feathering and bleedthrough only appears at the flexed part.
|On a Rhodia No. 19 pad. Some feathering and bleedthrough.|
|On Tsubame notebook. Very little feathering on certain part of the lettering, but bleedthrough is prominent.|
|On Apica notebook. No bleedthrough and feathering.|
|On Rhodia dotPad. Works beautifully without any feathering|
|On Clairefontaine Collection 1951 notebook. Match made in heaven.|
Have you make any new discovery with ink and paper recently?
