Dating back to a small boutique in Paris in 1700, Herbin Fountain Pen Ink is one of the best in the world, both in smoothness of writing and breadth and brilliance of colour palette. Bleu Myosotis is a highly pigmented ink which produces consistent results in most nib sizes. It is also the closest colour to the standard and traditional blue ink used by each French pupil, a classic ink to add to your collection. All Herbin inks are pH neutral and non-toxic. They are water-based and therefore will run if wetted. The inks are light fast and only natural dyes are used. We recommend high quality paper with Herbin Ink.
