Let’s tackle one more J Herbin ink before we move on to some new inks, J Herbin Gris Nuage. This ink is available in 10ml and 30ml bottles. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Gris Nuage is a very light grey.
In large swabs there a little bit of shading, but no sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 40 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Low
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was just a little bit of feathering, and some bleeding in the flex nib.
Overall, the ink feels a bit dry for my taste, and can be a bit too light in smaller nib sizes. I think I prefer Diamine Silver Fox and Montblanc Oyster Grey for a light grey over Gris Nuage.
