KWZ IG Green #1

KWZ Ink Green #1

IG Green #1 is a dark grey green (or verdigris) that has enough blue in it to almost (but not quite) qualify as a turquoise. As noted previously, this ink exhibits noticeable bleed on wetting and is generally water resistant. To be sure, however, I definitely prefer this to the Rohrer & Klingner’s interpretation of Verdigris (and that one isn’t even iron gall).

Shading – None
Bleedthrough – None
Feathering – None
Sheen – Glossiness when laid on thick
Smear Resistance – Pronounced blue-green smearing
Drip Resistance – Generally water resistant, pronounced color bleed
Flow – Dry/Normal
