If are bugged with felt tip highlighter pens darkened and smudging the tex or if you are simply in love with fountain pens and you want to use them while highlighting your text and if Pelikan Duo is a bit expensive for you, then you can use your fountain pen as a highlighter.
I used my Lamy Vista with a 1.9 nib for this purpose. I inked it with Monteverde Lamy cartridges fluorescent orange. You can find it here or here.
Then I used it while reading a great text on symbology. But what if you don’t have Lamy but another wide italic nibbed pen. So I choose some inks, which you can use as a highlighter.
Choosing those first four inks, I considered people who doesn’t like vibrant fluorescent colors but mute and calm ones. So here is; Diamine China Blue, Sailor Jentle Peche, J. Herbin Diabolo Menthe and J. Herbin Gris Nuage.
(Blogger please stop rotating my photos!!! Grrrrr) And the last trio is a bit more vibrant. J. Herbin Bleu Azur, Noodler’s Lightning Blue and Pelikan Edelstein Mandarin.
What do you think? Isn’t it nice to have a highlighter that its nib never get smudged or it is not disposable?
