Had a go at at this portrait this evening, 7rl, 9rs & 15mag, used Talens black that I got from ebay and diluted with witch hazel. The talens ink had quite a strong smell compared to my other inks, has anybody else used it? I bought it because I had heared how good it is, but I didn't find it as good as Kashoku Deep Black. Maybe it's fake, but the advert said it was genuine and that the guy selling it buys direct from Talens in Holland and then pours it in to sterilized 100ml bottles. Maybe it is genuine or maybe I am a genuine mug. Has anybody got a reliable supplier of this stuff, I paid about *£7 for 100ml.
