View Full Version : J. Herbin Gris Nuage (Thanks to FPGeeks)

Here a short handwritten review(?) of J. Herbin Gris Nuage:
The Bottle: Nice 30 ml bottle. Might be harder for use with piston fillers that have large nibs. It has a pen rest, but it's a bit slim for large pens. Works great though with my Lamy Logo or the Reform 1745.
Thanks again to FPGeeks for providing the ink.:o

Here a sample of Gris Nuage with a little dash of Havana Brown.
The result is a light brown/violet with greyish shading (red markings).
Works better with paper that is not bone-white than pure Gris Nuage.
The picture also shows, that Havana Brown incorporates a strong violet tone. And that shows in the mixture.
=> A broad nib is a must for the Gris Nuage ink.

I think the mix looks great. The original grey looks a bit faded for my taste.

How does any grey ink differ from diluted black?

This is an ink that I am always meaning to try but some how never get around to doing so.:)

This is my go to grey ink. I like how it shades and often looks like pencil when it dries. So far I've only used it in a broad waterman charleston. Might try it in a brush pen. That could be fun.

Too bad it doesn't photocopy well

Now that's a mixture I absolutely will try! Thanks for the idea!

Nice mix. Looks a little like J. Herbin Cacao du Bresil.
