I thought gray would be too boring. I was so wrong! This is the least boring gray I've ever seen. Hints of blues, pinks, and lots of depth makes writing with this ink fun. I use this in my A.G. Spalding M nib fountain pen and it's a match made in heaven. The only problem is that I am not sure what will happen when I get to the bottom of the bottle as regards filling.

Gris nuage is the color of a rain cloud. It's perfect for adding shading to a drawing with a brush pen. I really adore how it layers over itself to create darker grays. It's also great for cross hatching layers.

I currently have it loaded into a Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and it's really just perfect for the first layers of a sketch, letting me rapidly get ideas into my sketch journal as quickly as they hit.

It's a favorite color that I can never be without.

It flows well, doesn't bleed, and is very attractive — but is a bit lighter than I expected. It looks remarkably like graphite pencil lines.

Something I wanted to try- The color was / is great-very much like a pencil, but I found it to light to make a statement; so I added Rogue Caroubier and it walked and talked.
