Herbin Bleu Pervenche Mini Review



tenurepro

Recommended Posts

Here is a mini review of Herbin Bleu Pervenche, with a little comparison with OMAS turquoise. My little experiment with turquoise was precipitated by a review on Montblanc's ink of friendship a year and a half ago; off course i couldn't find a bottle of the montblanc ink, so i went out and bought the first two turquoise colours i found: Herbin's Bleu Pervenche and the OMAS Turquoise. I like them both, in terms of colour and good behaviour on paper. Bleu Pervenche is more of a dark blue-turquoise, while OMAS is more of a true turquoise. Bleu Pervenche gets the node for shading, but OMAS dries twice as fast.

I have and like this ink, do not yet have the Omas.

 

""""Pelikan Edelstein Topaz, which is not turquoise""" it will fake it.

I have Lamy (which needs better paper to shade), Waterman South Sea Blue which has some new forgotten name, Pelikan and this ink.

I had to go count...gee only 5 turquoise inks.

What once would have been many, is now too few.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

RIP...200's once great nib, now a double ball.:crybaby::wallbash:

lovely ink and handwriting - thanks. I'll have to try it out It appears to have a bit of a greenish hue vs. OMAS.

Here is Topaz and MB Diamond thrown in... i call this one 4 shades of blue :)

I think OMAS is a true turquoise... Bleu Pervencher is a blue-turuoise, and PE Topaz is.... like you say Bo Bo, a different animal.

I forgot one little problem with Bleu Pervencher - the bottle is very small and it is hard to fill up with big nib'ed pens without doing some serious acrobatics.

C d'A Caribbean sea :headsmack:

I've not inked that yet...I'd just got 4 C d'A inks last week and 4 R&K's 10 days before that so thought I'd save that for another day.

 

I have to sell some pewter topped beer mugs at the flea market. I need to get my inks organized on one shelf of my beer mug book case.

One did have a life of collecting before pens.

 

After 50 inks organization is a must.

R&K is a good hint, currently I have none, but I'd like to get Scabiosa and Salix in the near future. :eureka:
