This a quick test to start putting into practice some of the wonderful behaviours of fountain pen inks learned over the last 18 months. J Herbin 1670 Emeraude de Chivor is a magnificent ink. Not only does it bleed beautifully with water giving these gorgeous cloud like effects, when adding pen on top you get that dark emerald with the deep pink sheen and, of course, that gold. Once the chromatic process had dried inside the circle, all I had to do was decide what to do with it, so, here are two Edwardian lovers frolicking about in the sea. And all this from one ink!
