Garnet, a precious red stone, is also a reddish ink. It has a great flow but feathering a bit on copy paper. Therefore I also wanted to try it on Rhodia.
As it didn’t feathered on Rhodia, it also had a great shading. Still not shading as much as Amber, the most shading ink of all Edelstein series.
When compared to other red/pink colors of Edelstein family, Turmaline and Ruby, Garnet gives this photo. Ruby is lighter and Turmaline is so pinkish when compared to Garnet.
I shoot it with J. Herbin Rouge Hematite and Waterman Red since I don’t have so many red inks and the others couldn’t be compared with the warm undertones of Garnet. With only negative side of not being resistant to water, Garnet is a great vibrant color choice for note taking and marking.
