As a huge fan of J. Herbin inks, I was thrilled to learn about five new standard inks introduced in 2018. Additionally, there’s new 1798 ink called Cornaline d’Egypte.
It comes in an elegant glass bottle that contains 50 ml of the writing fluid.
The ocher tint of Carnelian of Egypt, inspired by gemstones, is nice. i like this kind of muted oranges. It brings warmth to the writing. Because the ink contains glittering particles it should be approached as a high-mainenance ink. Sounds scary, but if you won’t leave a pen filled with it in a drawer for a year I wouldn’t expect any trouble.
