Graf von Faber-Castell Turquoise

Graf von Faber-Castell was founded in 1761 and developed into the major manufacturer of wood-cased pencils. With time they started to offer much broader range of products. Few years ago company’s introduced six inks. Last year they’ve added three new colors to the line. This year they’ve done the same. Three new GvFC colors hit the shelfs.

  1. Burned Orange
  2. Carbon Black
  3. Cobalt Blue
  4. Deep Sea Green
  5. Electric Pink
  6. Garnet Red
  7. Hazelnut Brown
  8. Midnight Blue
  9. Moss Green
  10. Royal Blue
  11. Stone Grey
  12. Turquoise
  13. Violet Blue

Turquoise is one of three new additions to the line. As many of you know I’m not a turquoise fan. There are turquoises that are tolerable but GvFC ink is more on a dreadful side. It has it all that makes me clench the teeth. Aargh.

Apart from being ugly, there’s nothing wrong with it. The flow is average, maybe closer to Pelikan 4001 than J. Herbin but I would be surprised to hear it felt to dry. There’s practically no feathering and bleedthrough. The ink lacks saturation a bit.
