Season 1 of the Colorverse is the most mysterious to me.  I started with Season 2, fell in love with Season 3 and then just got sidetracked with all the shimmer and sheen.  Now that a bit of time has passed and most of those colors have been explored, comes the season of shading!  Colorverse Season 1 is known for its amazing shade and unique base colors.

I will eventually get through playing…err experimenting with all these colors, but for now lets focus on Saturn V!

 

Ink Shots:

This color turned out to be a saturated navy blue with a color range between a light royal blue and a deep almost black sheen.  This showed well even during regular writing, on Hippo Noto 68GSM TR paper.  I love blue inks and I’m usually prepared to see a foil red sheen, but this is something a bit different.

We still have a few bottles left at http://www.hipponoto.com in case you would like to try it yourself ^_^.  It is eligible for our Gift with Purchase promo of the previously unreleased Glistening Andromeda and Alpha Centauri.  Don’t miss out on these two awesome freebies.

In other blue ink related news, we have received some preliminary production photos from our friends at KWZ Ink!  Very soon we will introduce Hawaii Blue to the world!
