Love the shading in this ink. Very well behaved and vibrant color.

Thanks for the review.  I don't normally like red-leaning browns, but I do like Terracotta a whole lot.  It might just be my favorite of the 150th Anniversary line (even over some of the blue inks).  And it really *does* look just like terra-cotta -- I don't understand sometimes how some inks get named, but this one?  The name is spot on....  :)

Thank you, great review; it's the ink I should have got instead of Ancient Copper, which I eventually gave away as it didn't do much for me.

Thank you for bringing this ink under our attention again. It's my second-best favourite of the original 150th Anniversary line. A great-looking ink that I really enjoyed using. I haven't used it for a while (so many inks ;-), but it's about time to ink up my brown TWSBI Micarta again.

BTW - my absolute favourite from the original 150th Anniversary inks is Safari. 

 

I haven't tried the 2nd set of 150th Anniversary inks yet ... but I've recently received my bottles. So... soon it's testing time!

Thanks folks, for the kind words.

 

PS: I misspoke in my review (getting old ) The Hindi word "Gerua" is more light orange than terracotta.

That's because it's a brown-leaning red!

 

I discovered this ink while searching for a color similar to my beloved Montblanc Leonardo DaVinci "Red Chalk", which is sadly no longer available.  The Diamine "Terracotta" is very close indeed.  I love the beautiful vintage feel of it.

Monteverde red velvet is quite close to Montblanc red chalk.
