Terre de Feu Brown Ink Mixing Part 2

My previous experiment mixing J. Herbin Terre de Feu brown fountain pen ink was done with 5 parts Terre de Feu and 1 part another ink. Part 2 of my mixing experiment was created with 1 part Terre de Feu and 1 part another ink, definitely producing more varied and interesting results. I may not want to write with all of these colors but I think they would look great as part of a painting, sketch or other artwork.

One part J. Herbin Terre de Feu plus one part Noodler’s Black equals a very dark brown-black.

Terre de Feu and Noodler’s Shah’s Rose make a delicious looking raspberry wine color. Something that would go well with this weekend’s BBQ.

A burnt caramel color with lots of shading is produced with Terre de Feu and Noodler’s Yellow. I would put it in the ochre category.

Noodler’s Navajo Turquoise and Terre de Feu creates an inky grey-blue color that reminds me of something I would see in nature – a whale, a bird, a night sky.

J. Herbin Lierre Sauvage plus Terre de Feu makes a dark mossy pond-slime green. I can visualize this color in a pine forest, murky pond or on a rock on the beach.

Terre de Feu mixed with J. Herbin Violette Pensee produces a dark grape-y purple color. I might call it a dark purple-burgundy.

Lastly, Terre de Feu and J. Herbin 1670 Anniversary ink together make brick red.
