Borealis Black

The label artwork depicts the Northern Lights in all their colorful glory because the ink absorbs their full spectrum. This is a conventional black ink from the 1950s, super smooth writing, shades well, and perfect for artists and calligraphers with fast flex pen work to do. It is water resistant on most paper grades - HOWEVER, unlike other grades of Noodler's Black (Standard Black, Polar Black, Heart of Darkness, and … [Read more...]

Baystate Concord Grape & Cranberry

The reintroduction of a rare (and as of recently unavailable) mid-1940s family of inks that was once very popular in the New England area has been well received by enough pen users to warrant the expansion of these inks. Despite the highly unusual nature of this ink family (particularly when Baystate Blue is compared to far weaker nondurable modern inks) many Noodler's customers have requested that it be expanded beyond … [Read more...]

Baystate Blue (Waterproof)

At the end of World War II a colonial style blue ink was made in Boston, Massachusetts. Similar to a cobalt blue - though not an acid ink, it replicated blue ink from a much earlier era. There is a bottle in the Noodler's collection of vintage inks - and the color is extremely intense. “Baystate Blue” is Noodler’s conventional (waterproof) version of the classic colonial era blue based upon how the original formulas … [Read more...]

Dragon’s Napalm

This unusual ink is the result of a long quest for a replica color to 1970s era mercurochrome antiseptic, which was famous for its distinctively bright orange/pink/red fire like tones. An artist testing the ink discovered that when used with a brush, the heavier applications of the ink would dry to develop into sepia shaded highlights within the brush strokes of the fire like color shades. No other carmine ink has been … [Read more...]

X Feather

The label has no name, just the image of the "anti-feather". This ink was formulated in a small quantity for those who care less about dry times (it is not a fast penetration ink and will take more time to dry) and care most about feather resistance on high recycled content papers and moleskin papers that are particularly absorbent/porous. If you desire a faster penetration rate and lubrication, we offer Polar Black. Our … [Read more...]
