Ink Snippet: Papier Plume Lake Michigan Summer

Papier Plume Lake Michigan Summer writing samples

Papier Plume Lake Michigan Summer. This blue-green ink was crafted by Papier Plume of New Orleans for the Chicago Pen Show, inspired by the blue waters of Lake Michigan in summer. It’s a beautiful color, and it really does make me think of a day at the beach.

Lake Michigan Summer is one of two special small-batch inks Papier Plume is bringing to the 2017 Chicago Pen Show next month.

  1. This reminds me a little of Herbin Vert Reseda, except this is more pigmented. Still shading, but the dark parts of the shading are deeper than with Vert Reseda. I like that! Reseda is a favourite of mine, but sometimes when I use it for notes (rather than headers and detailing) it can be a little too light to read easily, depending on the paper. This looks like it wouldn’t have that problem.

      1. Do you want some Vert Reseda? I’d love for it to get another fan. It’s really pretty! I bought it at the same time as Cacao du Bresil and got Rose Cyclamen soon after, and as I tried out the inks I realised they all created this slightly 1950s palette. Great inks!

  2. I think the color is gorgeous. It sort of reminds me of Diamine-Steel Blue too. Chrissy said Kaweco-Paradise Blue is close to that Caribbean Sea ink. I do love that color too. I really love the blue green, and green blue colors. I don’t know what it is, but I just LOVE THEM. Papier Plume has really been making some lovely colors. I’m quite impressed!
