A new Herbin in the 350 series. Medium dark green with silver shimmer. Not an ink to use in the office, but certainly an ink to use in personal correspondence like postcards and brief notes.
The ink behaves quite well, the shading is beautiful, but lubrication could be a little bit better. Especially for a Herbin ink it's quite dry. Drying time - even on Tomoe River 52g paper - was only 35 seconds. Don't let water come near to your writings, only the shimmer has some water resistance.
The other characteristics:
|Shading||Moderate - high|
|Lubrication||Could be better|
|All in all it's a nice, decent ink, but not a spectacular one.|
|Three stars out of a possible five.|
