Pelikan Edelstein Mandarin

Ordinarily I’d have some misgivings about inks in the orange range because for some reason my encounters with them have tended towards watching with some amusement and disgust as the inks grew roots into my paper. Edelstein Mandarin is not one of those inks. In fact it is well behaved and somewhat on the wet side for a Pelikan. It reminds me of rather nicely ripened Mandarins, and if one presented me with a similarly colored orange I would certainly think to eat it. As can be seen from the swab, it is actually quite resistant to a casual smudge even though it definitely would not survive a soaking. Interesting.

Shading – Quite a bit
Bleedthrough – None
Feathering – None
Sheen – None
Smear Resistance – High
Drip Resistance – None
