Máté Bikfalvi, the owner of Pennonia, shares thoughts on the ink colour: This particular ink uses the Latin name of the Danube. The river is special because it flows through both of my home countries, Hungary and Romania, and in each of them it offers different experiences. While in Hungary, the Danube is often portrayed alongside Budapest, or Visegrád, in Romania it forms the Danube Delta, a wild, majestic place…a journey back to something elemental. Like the river itself, the ink also tries to offer different experiences to whoever uses it and transports them to a magical place of shades and colors.
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.
Note: Bottles shown are 50ml, however, Pennonia has recently switched to 60ml bottles! They're just a little taller but share the same qualities as the 50ml bottles.
All Pennonia inks are created by hand using high-quality ingredients, precise measurements, and a pinch of passion for writing and inks to bring you, vivid, beautiful colors to write with. They are designed to work flawlessly with your favorite writing instruments, offering a smooth, pleasant writing experience. Pennonia inks can also be customized with different color shimmer powders based on your preference.
Each bottle is hand-labeled using Clairefontaine Clairmail 60 g/m2 white paper and the bottles themselves are pharmaceutical-grade amber glass bottles to protect the inks from UV light. The bottle's wide mouth is excellent for filling any kind of fountain pen and reduces the chances of accidentally tipping them over when filling.
