Van Dieman's Ink

A Decade in the Desert - Painted Desert Fountain Pen Ink

A Decade in the Desert - Painted Desert Fountain Pen Ink


Exclusive to Pen Chalet


Imagine a canvas where nature has let loose its artistic flair, where layers of time have been painted in hues of red, orange, pink, and yes, even purple. This is Arizona's Painted Desert, a masterpiece sculpted by the elements over millions of years. Our third ink in the "A Decade in the Desert" collection, Painted Desert, is a tribute to this natural wonder.

Painted Desert ink is not for the faint-hearted. It's a bold, high saturation purple, as deep and mysterious as twilight in the desert. This ink doesn't just write; it declares, it announces, it makes a statement. It's for those who believe that writing is not just about words, but about expressing one's unique personality.

But wait till you see the magic that happens when this ink dries. A bright green sheen emerges, like a mirage shimmering in the desert heat. It's a delightful surprise, a splash of color that adds a whole new dimension to your writing.

With Painted Desert, every word you write is an adventure, every letter a step into the unknown. It's an ink that challenges you to break free from the ordinary, to make your mark, to paint your own desert.

Dare to be different with Painted Desert, and let your words be as vibrant and unique as the desert that inspired it.
