Tools of the trade: New ink from J. Herbin

Post Comment


Ready to try a new ink? J. Herbin is about to introduce the newest color in their 1670 anniversary series. Available in France later this month, Gris orage, or “Stormy Gray,” will hit American shores sometime in the fall.

The color is so new that we don’t even have pictures of it, but here’s what I know from my correspondence with Exaclair President Christine Nusse: it’s a shimmery gray with metallic particles. Those particles are actually gold, not silver, but because of the color of the ink, the effect is silver. Sounds intriguing, right?

I’ll post more info as soon as we have it.
