Pick a Finetec gold....
« on: December 15, 2016, 08:45:32 AM »
I do not have any of the Finetec pearls and Santa is making his list...

(Asking for recommendations)

If you had to choose one Finetec GOLD..which one would you recommend?

(I suppose I should mention that I already do have Dr. Martins Copperplate Gold)

Thank you in advance!

The Arabic Gold is by far the most popular.  We sell 4 times as many of that color than the next closest.  Personally, my favorite is the Moon Gold.

And we are adding all the new colors, just awaiting stock to arrive from Germany.  I will post once we have them in stock.

Not much interaction with GOld. But did one envelope with 'Sumi Gold' and it was not bad.
Infact I also tried filling my Pilot parallel with it and it did its job. :D

I second the Moon Gold it's a more pale, less yellow gold. I think the Arabic gold is quite similar to the Dr. Martin's Gold in hue ... but I can say that only from pictures, as I haven't tried the Dr. Martin's Gold. For me, the Arabic gold is a bit too "loud" but it totally depends on the occasion!

I adore the Arabic Gold!  I can't tell you how many little "pots" of it I have ordered!  I use the other golds from time-to-time, but my old reliable is the Arabic Gold!!

I like Arabic gold, Pearl gold and moon gold. Arabic gold is the richest of the lot while moon and pearl are paler.
