    Like Smoky Quartz, I got a second bottle of Olivine....

    If the ink is dry for your pens, try a semi-flex nib.

    IMO semi-flex is not a slow to write Calligraphy nib that many misuse the nib for.... but a soft ++ nib with some ease of tine spread....so a wet writer.
    Being a wet writer, unless a perfect match of paper and ink, shading is lost or lessened.

    I just scribble right along with semi-flex as fast as with any other nib....and let the nib give me some of that old fashioned fountain pen script...with out me having to do anything at all.

    Oh this is a gorgeous ink! I have the M205 Olivine but didn't manage to score a bottle of the ink. Seeing your review, I really wish I had been able to....
    [EDIT]: Stupid me, I'd assumed that the ink was sold out. But it isn't! I'll be sure to add a bottle to my next Goulet order

    Great review again, Chrissy.

    Very tempting ink, but I think I have enough in the color range for now.

    """Very tempting ink, but I think I have enough in the color range for now. """""

    Some years ago, I had no interest in green inks, I was chasing purples.
    A store had a sale and they had half a bottle of 4001 Brilliant Green, for next to nothing.
    The ink Shaded!!!!
    In the course of that year I ended up with some 14 green or greenish inks, now have 19.

    Never did get back to chasing purple.
