J. Herbin Corail Des Tropiques

Recommended Posts

As a huge fan of J. Herbin inks, I was thrilled to learn about five new standard inks introduced in 2018. I've got the bottles and I'll review them shortly.

New inks come in standard J. Herbin glass bottles that contain 30 ml of the writing fluid.

CdT is a decent, moderately saturated ink. I dislike the color, but appreciate the behaviour. I won't judge you if you buy a bottle.

Nah... I’m a hot pink kind of guy. This one is too lame...

Aha... then it might be my kind of colour :-)

But no, pink inks are not for me (at least for writing, but this one looks like a nice pastel colour for drawing)

I'm not a bright-pink/fucsia kind of woman, I prefer the pastel tones of pink, so this is right up my alley.

Since Sailor's inflated prices I gave up on Sakura-Mori, but this looks like it could be a great substitute.

Thank you for the review! ^^

I'll pass on this one. If it's as orange as Michael R's picture, then that is my death color. As in the color that makes me look like death warmed over if I wear it.

 

I don't look good in many oranges as it is, but that one is especially unflattering. I've hated it all my life for that reason.

This one I'd have to see in person, so it's a "maybe" for me. Depends on how orange it ends up really being.

Thanks for the review.

Well, that's good about the behavior bummer about the lack of saturation.

Thank you for the wonderful review as always.

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

I came here because I was looking for a coral ink, and this one looks just pink to me. Michael's sample looks much more like what I was looking for. I'm not sure whether I'll end up buying one of not. If so, I'd try the 10 ml bottle, or maybe the cartridges, to see whether it's the pink or coral shade when seen in person.

I received my 10ml today and man is this ink hard to photograph. It goes down a little warmer than it dries but is definitely a lobstery, pastel, true coral to my eyes. This pic is colour correct on my s9 phone screen but other screens may vary of course:

Eesh that pic came out really dark on here but it looks just like Michael R's picture in person.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
