Green, not a color you see me review often, but this year I’m determined to try new things ^_^.  It felt only natural to try a Sailor green since I am so fond of the brand.  I decided to give Tokiwa-Matsu a go.

It comes in a white Sailor box with seasonal flower patterns on it.

The bottle is the standard Sailor bottle with the lovely miser plastic inside.

For this review I decided to ink up my Pilot VP Raden which was once again out of ink.

Ink Blob HDR and Regular Light:

That sheen tho!  ^_^. This ink has a very nice range of shading and is also a sheen monster.  The blob looks to be more than 50% sheen, I am impressed!  It has a nice wet flow, but isn’t too quick to dry.  As you can see from my InkJournal entry, I had a bit of a smudging issue.  Perhaps next time I will try a drier pen, hopefully not at the expense of the beautiful sheen.  I can’t say that I am a huge fan of greens, but this one certainly did open my heart to the color.

I leave you now with this awesome photo of my love for contrast stitching.
