I wanted to test out the J. Herbin Creapen, the Clairefontaine Grafit Sketchpad, and the 30 J. Herbin ink colors. I found a fun way to do all three at the same time! On the front of every J. Herbin box (and bottle) of ink, there is a small picture of whatever the ink is named after. Using the Creapen (loaded with J. Herbin Perle Noir), I outlined each picture and used that particular ink to color it in using just a simple cotton q-tip. I have 29 done, the only one missing is Rose Tendresse (which I have in limited quantities right now so I didn’t want to grab one for myself). I’ll add it when I get that in 😉 Enjoy!!!
