It's a PINK. My first pink. I bought this because I wanted to complete my R&K set, and also wanted to try something that is out of my comfort zone. I don't know what to think of this one. It's not bad. It's not ugly. Quite pretty actually. But it's pink. It reminds me of some pink backpacks for little girls. It's just too girlish. I think this one will be my last and only pink.

 

Splash: photo and scan

Due to the extreme wetness here, the splash is very red, rather than pink.

Samples

(Nonsensical words, featuring a pinky ghost in love. But I forgot the mouth...)

Somehow my scanner makes it much more saturated and much redder. I had to adjust the colour. So this is as far as my Photoshop technique goes.

 

The ink is easily obliterated by water. But it's super easy to clean out of a pen too.

Well, It is pinkish but I wouldn't say it's PINK written in capital letters ;)

One pink is enough for me. I don't think I'll be getting Montblanc Pink  :lol:

Wow. Fernambuk comes out of my pens absolutely red, not pink. I'll have to go back and try it with something dry, instead, to see if it comes out pink like your photos!

Here's a great picture of Pernambuco Wood soaked in a glass of water:

- a pretty good match I'd say!

Reminds me of the color of the glaze on an English seaside "stick of rock"!

Add a few drops of Helianthus and you can get a lovely Coral (more for Salmon, more still for Peach) - not my idea but it works!
