    Personally I find grey boring, to write with. I tried stormy grey and that cured me
    However, for sketching and drawing I'm sure it's a great ink...
    I hope you got my hint...

    R & K Thea?

    Got it

    Of course you are right, it is Rohrer & Klingner Thea.
    So we have a winner !!!!!!!
    Congrats!!!!


    Side note:
    You are really good at guessing, your guesses are on the point and you hunt the unknown ink down like a boodhound.
    Well done, it´s a pleasure to play with you.



    So coming back to your hint with the baseball bat .....



    Elsa Ink sketch by Ptero-Pterodactylus by Ptero Pterodactylus on DeviantArt

    (Guider Marala - Degussa Vintage Full Flex Steel Nib ..... Rohrer & Klingner Thea, Brush, Rotring Zeichentusche Weiß, Rohrer & Klingner Blu Mare, Rohrer & Klingner Solferino)

    There was no surprise here Thea behaves as expected.
    Rohrer & Klingner sketch inks (suitable for Fountain pens) as well as their purely writing inks are top notch.
    The sketch inks are 100% waterproof when dried, they perform extraordinary well in fountain pens, the line quality is great and they shade really nicely (Thea is here also no exception).


    Now it´s again your turn.

    That's just lovely Ptero. Now I understand why grey is not boring.....

    This should be an easy one.....

    Here is a poor attempt of try to emulate a XIVth century French manuscript with the wrong nib......
    I wouldn't have lasted long as a scribe...

    Wild strawberry looks retina searing
    This is more pastel.
    Not a Diamine ink

    I see. I'm not sure, light reds are not the coffee to fill my cup...
    Anyway, is it J. Herbin Rouge Caroubier?

    Like Jens I also thought J Herbin, but Rouille d'Ancre.
    In the words of Paul Simon, you can call me Al.

    Anyway,
    Mine either. I bought it on a whim at the pen store. It was one of those rare inks that I almost immediately emptied....
    In retrospect, I guess it can be an interesting ink for drawing... If only I had 1% of Ptero's talent


    is it J. Herbin Rouge Caroubier?
    Yours
    Jens
    No. But you're getting close....

    Not sure you've really captured the true "sticking plaster pink" that Rouille d'Ancre brings to the world of ink there, Yazeh. It really is a one-of-a-kind, which surprisingly few inks can claim to be.

    Anyway, I will do my best to provide a sample toot sweet. Although speed of arrival will depend on the connection gods, so a small sacrificial fire of old routers and ADSL splitters will be the first task...

    ETA:
    Here goes then. You know your connection is slow when some speed test pages won't ever finish loading... 0.14 MBps. Oi vey.

    Hi,

    Pelikan Smoky Quarz?
    Not sure, but that is a nice presentation of a beautiful ink...
