Wait… wait a minute… is that a purple? Is it?! Nope…. What we have today is closer to Royal Blue – deep blue with a purple leaning, much dependent on the choice of paper. The sheen is definitely more pronounced with this one though, and I can see it on 2 of the 3 types of paper pretty easily – when the light hits it right.
I’m definitely going to have to pay attention to which paper I’m using with some of these inks. I’m thinking Rhodia will be my most likely option (which is easy, as that tends to be my ‘go to’). Definitely get some nice reaction on the bagesse though – so it’s unfortunate I haven’t been able to find any that isn’t lined.)
