I always said I would do fountain pen ink tests when I had the time, so here we go. This is Noodler’s Cayenne, which is my new favorite red ink, despite it being more orangey than I expected. The orangey works! And although I would change a few things about this scan, I am posting it anyway. It is a first attempt, and I will improve.

Materials used: Noodler’s Cayenne ink, Clairefontaine grid spiral notebook (14.8 x 21cm), Lamy 2000 fountain pen.
I purchased my ink, pen, and notebook at Flax Art and Design, and you should too. The store is amazing, and the good folks at the fine pens department are knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
I have more recommendations on fountain pens and ink.
