Ink Review | J. Herbin's Ambre De Birmanie
What a fancy name. Ambre De Birmanie
It certainly matches the lovely hue of this ink.
Here's a page from a Moleskine. You'll see I wrote in many different styles and even doodles. You can get a good sense for how the ink looks and behaves.
All the testing in these photos was done with a Lamy Safari Medium Nib.
This will be a really fun color to doodle with. And a great ink to accent the right piece of correspondence.
I picked up a great little postcard featuring a farm in the state of Ohio, and this color matched the haystacks featured on the front beautifully.
I, personally, like inks that have variation in shading. You'll see how the color is deeper at the bottom of my strokes.
The paper used below is a Neenah 25% Cotton Arctic White. I didn't get a bleed or smudge on the Moleskine or the Neenah stock.
Happy little yellow lines.
When I think of Valentine's Day (just around the corner!) I think of pinks, reds and yellows; like the one below.
I love the J. Herbin bottle. The top of the bottle has a notch which, I assume, is for resting your pen? No? I mean, what else is it for?
My Sheaffer Agio is featured below.
Oooo la la I just love the label and the bottle.
And, one requisite artsy-fartsy shot. The plant in the back is a desert rose sorbet....the actual name escapes me.
All in all, a great ink. I've noticed no clogging in my pens, really no bleed and very little smudge. The color is consistent and the ink is high quality.
I purchased this bottle from Poeme in Hyde Park.
