Rohrer & Klingner Scabiosa

Scabiosa is an iron gall ink which is put down as a rich greyish purple, but rapidly oxidizes to a grey with a hint of purple (evidenced by the color spreading from the watered ink test) that can appear black when laid down thickly. This is somewhat disappointing considering the rather waterproof nature of this particular offering.

Shading – Slight
Bleedthrough – None
Feathering – None whatsoever
Sheen – None
Smear Resistance – Slight color bleed
Drip Resistance – Slight color bleed
Flow – Dry
