Thanks for the review.

Not sure what to make of this one. It seems awfully close to the Herbin Stormy Grey, which is a pretty dark grey for the underlying ink.

So far, the count is one "yes" (Blue Lighning), one "no" (Magical Forest) and one "maybe" (Sparkling Shadows)....

I'm sure there will be endless reviews of these inks popping up just about everywhere, but as you've been involved with trialling these inks for the last year I consider your reviews as the definitive ones.

Hi Ruth,

 

I found Sparkling Shadows to be lighter than Stormy Grey and as such produced incredible shading that I just loved, esp being outside during reviewing. :wub: Hope that helps.

This one doesn't look too different from Gris orage. Why don't they put silver particles in this one?

 

Hi, I believe that was one of the test combinations that didn't make the grade, so to speak. There wasn't much contrast and the ink (IMHO) looked washed out. Out of the two, I really feel this one has so much more character and usability.

Thank you for that honour. I love (trialling) inks and it is a great responsibility to be trusted with someone's 'precious baby' so to speak, so it really feels wonderful to be a part of something this special.

Thank-you for a nice review :)

 

While it reminds me of Stormy grey it's not exactly the same (note to sell to do a side by each comparison)....and I was surprised at how nice it actually is. Pointless to share an entire tree image since I can't capture the shimmer, so here is a close up that does.

Very nice! I'll need to add a few of these two my collection.

Perhaps because of Herbin Stormy Gray?

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.
