The second ink in this year’s Inkvent is from the standard series. Standard inks have neither shimmer nor other “special” characteristics such as scent or a lot of sheen, but can instead have significant shading, a darker halo, or a bit of sheen in wet areas.
Cashmere Rose is a quite dark, dusky rose color with some shading. In wet areas, it has a dark, almost black halo. The ink seems to have a medium wet flow.
The ink swatches at the top show other dusky rose pinks from my collection: Arranged left to right, Ferris Wheel Press Lady Rose, Robert Oster Plumb Nut and Rose Gold Antiqua (which also has gold shimmer), and Cashmere Rose.
I find the color of Cashmere Rose to be somewhere inbetween Plumb Nut and Rose Gold Antiqua.
