What do wine and ink have in common?

Written by Catherine on Thursday 30 January 2014 in Ink

Connoisseurs! And ink connoisseurs have many things in common with discerning oenologists. As with wine-sampling sessions, in a certain sense the creation of a new ink or colour is a special moment when the ink is "tasted", submitted to different tests and assessed for quality like a vintage wine. One talks about consistency, clearness, lighfastness, saturation, nuance, tones, colours and viscosity. One talks about the combination between ink and paper, and ink and nibs. As you can notice ink is much more than a just a colour, it makes a world of difference.
