I have decided to review some of my inks. These aren't necessarily in any particular order.

This one is J.Herbin Rouge Bourgogne.

  • This isn't a waterproof or an archival ink
  • Bearing in mind the paper I use is very smooth, this ink took 10-12 secs to dry.
  • It flows reasonably dry but lubricates the nib quite well.
  • It is currently available in packs of 4 x 10ml small glass bottles and 30ml glass bottles.
  • It's available from many B&M shops and online retailers worldwide.

Thank you for your comments. I agree that it would be a very nice ink for a Valentine's Day card and envelope. I've used a similar scented J. Herbin ink for that purpose, an older one called simple "rose."

I just wish the name evoked the color more accurately. But it's a pleasing color.

This one is not enough to start a new thread as it is just a little impression of Rouge Bourgogne which I prepared for the #30inks30dayschallenge over at the German PenExchange forum:

Am normally not a fan of pink, but this looks quite good!  Thanks to both of you, Julie and Chrissy.  This is going on my list of ink wishes.

This ink has lots of nice shades and it seems quite intense on a wet nib.  Nice review.
