J. Herbin 1670 Bleu Ocean (Version 2)—A Handwritten Review



Recommended Posts

Here's my review of the new version of J. Herbin Bleu Ocean 1670 that contains the long awaited gold pigment. As far as appearances go, the new version looks worlds better just with the inclusion of the gold, but it's still nowhere near as well behaved as Rouge Hematite. But it's definitely worth the money just based on its uniqueness!

 

Here's my review of the original Bleu Ocean 1670 formula (please scroll all the way down for a more recent scan as the old scan has a horrible magenta color cast and isn't accurate), here's my review of the related Stormy Grey 1670, and here's my review of Rouge Hematite 1670 (the original formula—the most recent is the fourth version).

 

I'll be adding some more pictures tomorrow.

Is it bad to say that I could stare at your handwriting all day long?

 

Thank you for your thorough review!

Certainly not. It would, however, be bad to say "I could stare at your..." - on second thought, never mind.

 

It's beautiful penmanship, I agree.

Oh, yeah, that would be bad...

 

But he does have great penmanship.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

I was hoping this ink would work well for dip pen calligraphy. I guess not...

 

Luckily Sailor Souten performs brilliantly with Zebra G nibs and sheens like a king as well.

Really nice review- well presented & compelling!

I am just not liking this ink- it is OK, feathers a bit more than say JH Saphir- shading is fine- and the sparkles strike me as a gimmick. IMHO if you please.
