December 12th brings us Stargazer (shimmer & sheen) – a deep green, with green shimmer (at least, I think it’s green shimmer) and a red sheen. The sheen is quite pronounced on this one, and the shimmer is fairly subtle. I quite like this colour as it is a deep jewel tone.
December 13th brings Ruby Blues (sheen). A deep blue, but still bright. A bit brighter than the blues I usually go for (I tend to blacker blues). I find the sheen on this one is a lot subtler than some of their other inks. It picket up quite nicely on the Rhodia paper, but is almost unseen on the Pelikan pad.
December 14th is Red Robin (standard). A slightly brownish red, very much the colour of a Robin’s breast. As I watch the snow fall and the temperature drops, it makes me wish for spring.
December 15th is Night Shade (standard). For some reason, I keep writing this as one word… Nightshade. But is definitely is reminiscent of night, being a purple/grey and it definitely shades very nicely on the Rhodia.
