Thank you to Bertram's Inkwell for the Faber-Castell ink to review.
It has been a delightful afternoon.
Hazelnut Brown, Moss Green, Colbalt Blue, Carbon Black, Stone Grey, Garnet Red, this is the order in which I tested them. As with any review the reviewer has her own perspective. My perspective is almost always about how much I like the ink in the context of a drawing.
|The paper I used for this review is a Furrow notebook.|
|In the above photo each leaf will be in each of the colours received.|
Over all this ink receives high marks for flow and colour quality.
The first ink is Hazelnut brown it is a warm brown.
The next colour is Moss Green, a very rich dark green.
The Colalt Blue has an amazing intensity which grows deeper as I layer in the lines.
This maybe my favourite colour of this group. It is a Carbon Black which captures the tone of the carbon black printmaking ink.
Stone Grey has a delightful graphite tone.
Finally, there in the Garnet Red, red sometimes is worrisome because it can be intense, this red is just my color.
All of these would be a sound edition to anyone's ink collection.
