After several days of color explosions, this ink came as a bit of a suprise.
Walnut is a part of the standard line and is quite standard in every way. The color is a dark, slightly cool brown with minimal shading. In wet drops, it borders on black, and there’s also a hint of black sheen. The ink feels moderately wet.
Looking at inks no. 11 to 15 together, there are substantial variations:
Glacier has its silver shimmer overdose, Bah Humbug and Rainbow’s End are both sporting a vivid combination of color, shimmer, and sheen, while Weeping Willow has an indeterminate yet intriguing color. Compared to the first four, Walnut may seem a bit anonymous, but it’s probably more versatile.
