Graf Von Faber Castell Ink Water Test

10/11/2014

Graf Von Faber Castell Ink performed fairly well on printer paper when saturated with water from a paintbrush. Even hung vertically to dry, there is minimal color run. Some of the inks faded though not the black or the grey. Considering I scrubbed a little with the brush, the performance isn’t bad at all.

Note that back-lighting from a monitor will make faded areas appear more pale than would light on paper. In natural light at my desk, only the brown looks truly faded. The red less so and falls within an acceptable range for many purposes. A spill on a journal page would leave easily read writing. The ink that faded passed through to the reverse side of the paper though almost imperceptibly for the grey. It’s a surprising effect that I might explore in future.
