    J Herbin Vert de Gris

    A beautiful verdigris made by J. Herbin. Quite close to the original in this angle Photo curtesy of Annie Spratt, Wikipedia. But in washes, it’s truly outstanding and very close to the colour. Lets starts with beautiful chroma: Ink didn’t like my Osmiroid and it had flow problems. Paradoxically, it was a tad difficult to control with a fude nib on Tomoe River paper, made the feed was primed But in all other pens it behaved flawlessly. Ink is slightly dry. Writing Samples: Tomoe River 68gr Funnily enough the Osmiroid copper plate nib is fine that the Japanese EF. Midori Rhodia Comparison: It has acceptable water resistance: A few sketches of ancient "Minionese" statues discovered recently, somewhere over the rainbow · Pens used: Pilot Elite (Ef), Osmiroid Copperplate Lamy Safari (EF/F/ /Medium /Broad) / Kanwrite Ultraflex / Jinhao 450 fude · What I liked: It’s pleasing/ appeasing gree/grey/ blue. I love the 10 ml bottles. · What I didn’t liked: Flow was problematic in Osmiroid. Ok water resistance. · Shading: Yes · Ghosting: Yes, on some papers, especially cheap ones. · Bleed through: Yes, with very absorbent papers. · Flow Rate: Good · Lubrication: Depending pens it varies. · Nib Dry-out: Not noticed. · Start-up: No problem. · Saturation: Yes, it can be saturated with wet pens. · Shading Potential: Yes on wider pens. · Sheen: Thankfully no · Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: No. · Nib Creep / “Crud”: No · Staining (pen): No · Clogging: No. · Cleaning: Easy. · Water resistance: Acceptable · Availability: 10 ml / 30 ml bottles/ cartridges I'd appreciate hearing about your experience too

    In The Pink

    Still loving my pink ink. This is my writing kit ready for the start of National Novel Writing Month, NaNoWriMo for short. Rose Tendresse ink, pink Lamy Safari pen and a pink and silver notebook. I plan to write longhand during the day and type and upload in the evening, at least that's the plan that's in my head http://i866.photobucket.com/albums/ab228/Mariella_Moon/PinkforNaNoWriMo_zps35231023.jpg
