Post Comment

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:

Starry Night
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.

Shimmery sands
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?

  1. I want a Firefight Blazing Orange, My thought is ship to ship battle constant volleys of cannon fire followed by ship to boarding. One ship being the prize, the other crews fate? Who knows? The victors sailing off into a blazing sunset, there prize in tow. I really love J. Herbins 1670’s line of inks. In fact the little cards that come in the inks really are intriguing and unique. I ended up on J. Herbin’s Home Page reading the history of there brand very very interesting, and impressive!
