    4 Brown Yellows

    In the end I won't be getting the Honey, it doesn't seem to be different enough to me.
  2. When I started out on my quest for inks that look nice AND have very good water resistance properties, honestly the last ink series I thought I'd be getting were J. Herbin's standard fountain pen inks. I had a very misguided opinion of the line as being too faded looking, low saturation, dull, certainly not water resistant. That's until I accidentally found some reviews that showed water tests of J. Herbin's Lie de Thé. I also realized how interesting of an ink it is. It led me down the path of reanalyzing the whole line of inks, and I almost got a large size of Poussiere de Lune and some
  3. J. Herbin - Lie de Thé La Société Herbin, Maître Cirier à Paris, was established in 1670. This makes J. Herbin probably the oldest name among European ink makers. Today, Herbin produces a range of beautiful fountain pen and calligraphy inks, writing instruments, gift sets and accessories. Herbin inks are made in France, and the finishing touches on the bottles are still done by hand in Paris. J. Herbin is probably best known for their inks in the "La Perle des Encres" series. In this review, the spotlight shines on one of the stars in this line-up: the gorgeous golden-brown Lie de Thé.
  4. Ink Shoot-Out : Pelikan Edelstein Smoky Quartz vs J. Herbin Lie de Thé Last year, Pelikan pleasantly surprised me with its Ink of the Year 2017 - Smoky Quartz, and I've been really enjoying this smoky brown liquid. Fellow member Jan2016 then suggested that J. Herbin Lie de Thé is a very similar ink. That of course peaked my interest... so I got me a bottle of Lie de Thé and decided to pitch both inks against each other. Time to do a detailed comparison, and find out which of these is the better ink. Enter... the Ink Shoot-Out. A brutal fight spanning five rounds, where truly formidable
  5. Here's my review of Lie de Thé (alt + 0233 = é) A dark, oxidized tea stain brown. I ordered a 30ml bottle of this when I also ordered a sample of Pelikan Edelstein Smoky Quartz. I asked about 20 different people at work if they could notice the difference between the two. They could not. I really wish I'd ordered the largest bottle of this. As soon as I'm low, I'll definitely order the largest bottle of this I can. Honestly, I really liked Pelikan smoky quartz. But they have their heads so far up their own bums that the $30 for 50ml (Honestly I don't even think my bottles of pilot iroshiz

    J Herbin’S Lie De The

    J HERBIN’S LIE DE THE J HERBIN’S LIE DE THE. Bottled ink. Bought from Pen’s Avenue. 30 ml 695 Rs. A good source for imported inks in India. No affiliations, happy customer. The review goes like this. The bottle is simple. Square base, low height. Stable bottom. Less chance to get spill over. Convenient on busy tables. The slot for keeping a pen,a nice thought. INTRODUCTION Well, I find that all J Herbin’s inks are based on a theme. Here the theme ( I believe) is coffee mug. There are some similarities between coffee and this ink – both are ADDICTIVE!. Addictive by COLOR, addic
  7. I'd been meanining to write about this for some time, it won't be a revelation to anyone, but I was prompted into action by a recent and great review of Ama -Iro. This isn't a deep comparison of inks, I just want to deal with the topic of colour contrast. When I got this ink I though "oh dear", I felt I'd made a mistake, which is easy to do when you buy on the Internet, without the possibility of seeing the ink in person. But then a funny thing happened, this ink has grown on me, I really like it now, although nothing has really changed, except while writing I happen to use it next to Kon Pe

    J. Herbin - Lie De Thé

    Lie de Thé is one ink I was sure I was going to love. Like this ink will be forever married to my favorite pen kind of love. It didn't turn out that way. While Lie de Thé has great sketch behaviors (it washes well with an interesting color shift and leaves a sturdy, sepia line), it is a bit too saturated to be an solo act. It takes over the image. You see the color first, then the art. I think I'll try diluting it and see if that helps things. As is, it's not quite what I'm after. Unfortunately, I find Lie de Thé to be downright ugly as a writing ink, but that is very subjective. Many, many

    Four J. Herbin Browns

    I thought it would be interesting to compare the four Herbin browns. Top is Rhodia dotpad; bottom is Strathmore watercolor paper. Terre de Feu and Cacao du Bresil are two of the best sketching inks I've found. Lie de Thé is a gorgeous drawing ink that washes into a bold orange and sepia, but I never draw with it because it is such an ugly color to write with. I haven't found much use for Café des Îles. I considered including Ambre de Birmanie (one of my new favorites), but I consider it a yellow. Parker Quink Black (really a dark, dark blue) on the far right was added because Cacao du Bre
