Franklin-Christoph Dark Chocolate


Recommended Posts

As part of my expansion of the ink collection in the brown range beyond its already vast range, and from visvamitra's reviews of some of their other inks, I picked up this ink, as well as the Brown which I've already reviewed. Color-wise, it's not quite the match for PPM that I had hoped, being an authentic brown instead of a brown-black, but a very good ink.


Tested on Mohawk via Linen, Hammermill 28 lb Inkjet, and Clairefontaine papers.


The iPhotos came out darker than I wanted.



The wash is closer of an Indian Red instead of the brown shown here.





Not terribly waterfast in the blotting test. Even after just a minute, nearly all the ink lifts off the paper. The ink washes with an Indian Red earth color (for those familiar with the traditional watercolor earth pigments).



Fairly interesting chromatography.

I have a bottle of this FC ink and use it quite regularly. I really like the color and find it well behaved. Thanks so much for your comprehensive review, White_Lotus.

Great stuff! Thank you.

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