Ink Review: Noodlers Navajo Turquoise

I know I posted the PR Plum review earlier this month but I had written that one some time ago and just not scanned it in. So the Noodlers Navajo Turq. Is the first one I have written out in a while. The scan is not that fantastic but you get the idea. His is a great ink, a beautiful rich color that to me speaks of the lovely tropical seas that I wish I could see and hope that I do someday. No feathering no bleed through there is a little bit of shadow but it is not anything to worry about. There i.e. beautiful shading that just adds to the fantastic color. It would be beautiful even solid but with the shading just that much more. A fantastic wet rich color.

Dry time is not too bad on this one. Most noodlers take a lot longer to dry but this one would be good for left-hander on the right paper. I would not recommend they use it on something like Sugar Cane or Clairefontaine Triomphe. Water test is a mega fail but it does not claim to be bulletproof. While you can see that, much of the color came off you can still read it. Over all THUMBS UP.
