Máté Bikfalvi, the owner of Pennonia, shares thoughts on the ink colour: 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 they 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.
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.
