About the Ink from Pennonia's Director:
Like the simple lichen, this ink also comes in many different shades and colors. If you have read some of the other descriptions you’ve probably noticed that most of the inks have a connection to childhood experiences and it’s the same with this one as well. I believe that inks can help long forgotten memories to resurfaces and interestingly it reminded me of experiences that I never remember in day to day life. For example collecting sticks and branches while in the woods, preparing campfires, sword fighting with said branches, noticing it on old rocks and foundations of almost as old buildings.
This ink is a part of a mini-series of shading inks, which work particularly well with brushes, brush pens and dip pens. They truly come to life when used in writing instruments from which the inks can gush onto paper. Of course they are also great for fountain pen sketches and even handwriting but the effect is more subdued thanks to the nature of these shading inks. One mantra that is good to keep in mind: the broader and wetter the nib, the better.
Each bottle is hand labelled using Clairfontaine Clairmail 60 g/m2 white paper and the bottles themselves are pharmaceutical grade amber glass bottles to protect the inks from UV light. The wide mouth of the bottle (4 cm) is excellent for filling any kind of fountain pens and reduces the chances of accidentally tipping them over when filling.
All inks carefully packed into simple-yet-beautiful boxes to keep them safe during transport right until they reach your shelves.
