This ink pad really does match the pumice stone I've got in my cleaning supplies. It's gray gray but a tiny bit dirty. Most pumice stones sold are actually rock they cut out of the ground (pretty cool) so it makes sense that the real deal has that bit of brown in it. Bit tiny bit. I would not not call it a warm gray. Pumice Stone ink pad is going to be neutral gray to most people's eyes (but we are all artists here and fuss over colors). As for saturation this ink pad is pretty much in the middle, maybe a tinge lighter. I find it a little too dark for shadow stamping, but as a blended shadow it's super. I've also used it for edging lighter paper to great effect… flower pedals and the like. Finally Pumice Stone is a wonder at knocking back colored paper -- when you love the patterned paper but it's just too light bright -- without going to the vintage Tea Dye thing. Good stamp pad color to have.
especially for a project I have started with my Cricut machine involving vases and statuettes. This is giving the statues an aged look like they have seen thousands of years of the elements and erosion. Along with Old Paper, they look fantastic. I was surprised at myself!
