We will be submitting some 1670 ink color ideas to J. Herbin in France later this fall. We have already started to receive some suggestions. Here are a few from Dil in the UK:
Dark Blue night sky with stars. A blue-black mixed with the gold particles.
Probably with a Bleu Nuit or an MB new formulation blue-black.
Concealed in the Crust
The idea would be to have an earthy brown with “Gems” scattered within it. A dark brown something like Cacao Du Bresil or Havana brown with the gold particles.
Moon Dust (Couldn’t think of a good name) A way to make one of my favourite inks even better. J herbin Poussiere De Lune with silver particles.
A sandy brown with an added sparkle. Something like J Herbin Ambre de Birmanie with gold particles
I think these all sound luscious! Thanks, Dil!
Others (less romantically presented) included a black ink or a deep, rich purple. Copper particles–instead of silver or gold–was also suggested.
What would you like to see J. Herbin create for 2016?
