    I own Magical Forest and it is lovely: after buying all four Herbin shimmer inks I was itching for one with silver instead of gold. I have two other of the Diamine silver shimmers and they mix beautifully: I mixed Magical Forest and Blue Pearl to get a really nice teal.

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Oh my goodness! I can sort of picture that mixture in my head and I imagine it’s absolutely to die for. Do you have a picture of it?

    I love this selection of inks, but have not used any of them yet. The Diamine Terracotta and PR Earth Brown are striking, and I love the rich green inks too. Wonderful Ink Drop. Good green and brown inks make excellent alternatives to the more commonly used colors.

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Hi, Tom. I was thinking the same thing about these inks, they are subdued for every day use but still a bit of fun in unconventional green or brown.

  • Phred

    I love the green in the girls shirt, which one of the greens is that?

    • Pira Urosevic

      That green is the Noodler’s Forest Green. Keep in mind that I’ve added a wet brush atop the green for a wash. For writing it’s simply a nice dark forest green with fair shading if you use a flex nib. I’ll have my trees finished by Monday to demonstratehow the shades breakdown 🙂

      • Phred

        Ahhh, thanks for that insigt. That makes sense from an artist perspective. Good thing I checked, because I want that color while I’m writing, so buying the Forest Green would have disappointed me from a writing point of view.

  • I’m pretty stoked about these colors. I haven’t tried any of them. I especially look forward to the Diamine Magical Forest because of the shimmer. :o)

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Can’t go wrong with shimmer. It makes writing feel so much more magical!

    Great sketch and I love the colors. Terra Cotta is a color I just have to have to use with my sienna color leather day planner. Saving my pennies for the Karas Kustoms copper pen. That pen with terra cotta ink, wow. My wish list is growing. Dear Santa…I have been a good girl so far this year…everything else I can explain.
