Electric Pink – Graf von Faber-Castell

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

Electric Pink is quite cool.Not as cool as Rohrer & Klingner Solferino but it has some character. The ink behaves well, doesn’t cause feathering (unless you use really bad paper)

The flow is agood, close to J. Herbin inks. The ink feels rather wet. In wet nibs it can offer nice shading.
