Chromatography for Rouille d'Ancre (top) and J. Herbin Terre de Feu (bottom)

 

 

This is a strange ink that few people will find use for. I bought a bottle, then discovered how very close in hue to Terre de Feu it really is. In fact, when washed with water they are exactly the same shade, though Terre de Feu is more saturated. I will probably just use this for calligraphy on the rare occasion I need a dusty pink. Or maybe it will be good for painting washes at full strength. 

 

Please ignore the first sentence of paragraph 3. I am finding it almost impossible to clean the last of the dark brown ink I last had in my Conklin.

 

Care was taken to ensure color accuracy.

Well, I like it. It's strange and unusual color.

I love that opinions on this ink are so divided— a real love it or hate it color.

This color offended me so when I had it. I've since given it away to a fellow FPN member who appreciates it in a way that I never will.

I will say that I dislike the color less on ivory colored paper, but I still dislike it.

Ink, a drug.

Interesting. The "color" is very weak.

Looks like someone bled on white sheets and after laundering, this is as clean as it gets.

Or 

A semi-albino salmon.

 

Not my tempo.

Not a hater of low saturation... and I do think is a lovely color for sketching/washing a lovely rose..... but for writing... meh.  I don't see a real use for it.  ;)
