My problem with J. Herbin’s inks
August 28, 2010 § 3 Comments
Did I mention before that I actually like J. Herbin inks? Well, I certainly do. They have a fairly wide range of colors at an acceptable price. What I like less about them is that some of their colors are just too pale to be usable in fountain pens.
Pens used in this picture were a dip pen/shorthand nib and a Lamy/ M nib.
I agree with you…I love them too, but some colors are really SO pale…on the other hand, they sometimes then looks so “old” with this faded look. I quite like using a quil…it gives a bit of oomph on the color, but it can be blotchy if not careful.
Hi Silvia, I’ve been at big fan of your blog for a while. Would it be possible to email me at Lily@Pcowinc.com for some possible JetPens samples? Thanks Silvia! 😉
Thanks for the ink comparison!
You should teach a penmanship class. My handwriting could use it! 🙂
