Rohrer & Klingner Blu Mare

14 Oct

This is a nice enough turquoise blue. I was hoping for something with a bit of green in it, but this isn’t at. This ink is bright and well behaved. In that way, it reminds me more of the turquoises of old:  Skrip Peacock Blue/Turquoise, Pelikan Turquoise, Mont Blanc Turquoise, etc.

If you are looking for a straight turquoise blue that exhibits wonderful behavior this may just be your ink.

The Details

  • No feathering or bleeding
  • Good flow and lubrication
  • Saturation is average (think Herbin)
  • Drying time is reasonable at 5 seconds on this card and 7 seconds on HP LaserJet 24#
  • Minimal shading
  • Not even slightly water resistant let alone waterproof

This sample was sent to me for review by Ryan at PTP. I am not otherwise affiliated with them.
