    Default J. Herbin Gris Nuage (Thanks to FPGeeks)

    Here a short handwritten review(?) of J. Herbin Gris Nuage:

    a9vg2u.jpg

    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.

    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.

    If I mention a supplier, I am ONLY affiliated if I EXPLICITLY say so.

    How does any grey ink differ from diluted black?

    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.

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