Finally, I got a full bottle of most anticipated and absolutely beautiful ink this year which is J. Herbin 1670 edition – Caroube de Chypre (see review). I bought also a new bottle of Rouge Hematite also by J. Herbin (see review). This is my second bottle of this fantastic ink and I believe not the last one. The same will be with the Caroube de Chypre. Is simply stunning! It flows. It has golden flecks and it shows crazy looking, bright, almost ‘toxic’ green sheen.
Thanks to Mishka from BureauDirect UK, where I purchased these two beauties I also got also a ‘goodie bag’ containing set of free samples of few more J.Herbin inks I will be dealing with in coming weeks. Moreover, she was so kind and sent me some samples of KWZ inks which are manufactured by Polish chemist Konrad Żurawski (see KWZ colour palette…impressive). I was ‘contemplating’ these inks for a while now. I cannot wait to test them ‘my way’. I have beautiful golden-brown ‘Honey’, ‘Foggy green’ and superb ‘Turquoise’ which in fact is an ‘iron gall‘ ink.
…being a chemist and fountain pen and ink enthusiast, I would be awesome to meet with Konrad and have a chat. Stuff he does looks very cool, indeed.
