Stained Fingers on Thursday - A Review of Noodler's Purple Martin Ink

I know, I know, I have now featured two purple inks in a row as a part of Stained Fingers on Thursday, but I wanted to share the full reviews with all of you, since I had revealed all of these various purple shades, during my search for a replacement of Montblanc Lavender purple (click here to read that article).

This week, the ink is Purple Martin by Noodler's. A purple martin happens to be a type of bird, the largest variety of North American swallow:

Noodler's Purple Martin ink is nearly as vibrant as this bird's plumage!

This scan was done on an HP Deskjet F4280 at 600dpi.
Note: Because these scans are done with a light emitting printer, actual colors will, more likely than not, be slightly darker than they may appear, here. The colors shown, here, are probably a bit more reminiscent of what the ink would be like under a bright light or if it were held up and viewed with a light behind it.
