    Default Ink Review: Rohrer & Klingner sketchINK Lotte

    Rohrer & Klingner Leipzig-Co. makes many excellent quality inks, and has been making inks and more in Germany since 1892. A renowned ink maker that doesnít seem to be mentioned as much as some others.

    Today Iím reviewing another one of Rohrer & Klingnerís Sketch Inks: Lotte. These sketch inks are nano-pigmented inks, so the usual warnings about not leaving them in your unused pens for long periods, and exercising good pen hygiene should be followed.

    Lotte is a black ink thatís a strong black. Itís quite saturated and exhibited no shading. I found it nicely wet to write with. Very good flow through my pens, and smooth lubrication across the paper. A black ink thatís good for sketching and writing.

    It wrote with very tight, crisp lines, as is common with pigmented inks, and it dried quickly on my Clairefontaine Triomphe paper. It is lightfast and completely waterproof when dry, but while wet can be mixed with water to make an attractive wash onto the paper. For sketching those are excellent qualities.

    Cool Re: Ink Review: Rohrer & Klingner sketchINK Lotte

    That is pretty black, though it does seem paper dependant, as shown by your comparisons some of which have a more brown tone.

    I can't see any brown tones on the additional papers. Maybe slightly less black but leaning grey rather than brown.

    They look brown-tinged on the other papers for me too (but screens may vary!)
