Ink Shot Review: SBRE Brown Ink @sbrebrown @couronneducomte

I thought a review of SBREBrown's... SBRE Brown... was in order! Not surprisingly, it is brown. No details yet on when it'll be out, but hopefully soon. Working on the logistics currently.

At an angle, the sheen is a deep brown. Not as pronounced as I would have liked, but alas. Can't have everything.

Note about the sheen - I really noticed it on coated paper but in unreasonably wet splotches and splatters of the ink. In addition, I found that when those splotches dried completely, they didn't smudge and the sheen that I did see faded a bit so it was probably just a patch of over saturation.

Similar to Diamine Ancient Copper, but a little less red in it. Another image below to try and compare the two.

CONS
  • Not waterproof. 
OVERALL

Well, I had a part in picking the color, so I'm a little biased. I think it's pretty and I like when my brown inks are a little on the warm side. I hope you like it as well. It's easy to clean and pretty well-behaved, aside from being pretty. I know it won't suit everyone, but hopefully some of you out there will like it!
