Inks on sale at Goulet prompted a few new colors to miraculously land on my desk. I’d sampled Nemosine Aeolis Palus Red + Solar Storm (orange). Right, I played with the orange in both the Pilot medium nib Metropolitan and by brush. I inked on the Hahnemühle Post Cards both on clean paper and over inks.
I doubled back and went in wet twice with the brush. This ink performs nicely!
No feathering, though it does tend to make that splotchy look when you double back on it, wet-on-wet. In both I used only Diamine or Super5 inks as the secondary inks, just so I knew what I was mixing. The Nemosine seems to play well with the Diamine. One thing, the Nemosine moves with the slightest touch of water — completely dissolves. I spilled some water on this postcard so decided to let the rain happen… Wow! Wildy Splotchy colors!
Inks behave completely differently than watercolors, a post for another day!
