    It is indeed Colorverse Cotton Blue - a very much overlooked ink from the first part of the Project Series, but one I like a lot (along with a couple of others).

    Congratulations DrPenfection - the floor is yours!

    I like the color! You wrote that one of my guesses has a very close color. Which one, please?

    Here are my guesses so you don't have to go looking for my post:
    Diamine Bashful Blueberry
    Laban Blue
    Waldmann Blue
    Birmingham Allegheny Courthouse Justice Blue
    Caran d'Ache Magnetic Blue
    De Atramentis Night Blue
    Taccia Jeans Classic Blue

    It's the Waldmann Blue (which I have as Georg Jensen Blue), which is one of the lightest 'royal' blues I've come across. It's also surprisingly similar to the Taccia Jeans Classic Blue (AKA Grey Navy), which is just a tiny bit darker and has slightly less pink.

    From what I've seen, I suspect it's also close to the Birmingham Justice Blue, which of course I don't have (but covet madly!)

    PenBBS 181 Haitian Sea is also a petty good match from my own swabs, with 179 Serenity coming close. If there was an ink in between Studio 143 and 243, that would also work!

    (you did ask... )

    Thank you, mizgeorge. This is another lovely blue ink that I will have to purchase. The samples that I had seen online make it look darker than your sample - which I like very much. So, I wasn't sure if I should guess it or not.

    Anyway, I will be back in a few minutes with another ink.

    This next ink is from my current "project".

    Many people are doing the 30 inks for 30 days. And the samples I have seen are just that - ink swatches with the name of the ink. One person who did this suggested that she was glad that she did since it allowed her to "rediscover" her ink collection again. She said that instead of continually adding new inks, she was rediscovering inks she already had and enjoying them all over again.

    Her comment resonated with me, since I have quite a number of inks - far less than most of you, I am sure. So, I thought I would try this. But ink swatches have never really been very informative to me. So, I decided that I would do some simple transcription each day with a different ink. It gave me a chance to ink up a different pen with one of the inks in my collection and use it for that days' writing. For the sake of time, I limited myself to one page per day. I have been doing this pretty much every day for a few months now and have fallen in love with most of the inks that are already in my ink collection - some that I had forgotten about.

    The ink is one from my transcription.

    Here is the photo:

    Double Cropped Page 1800.jpg

    Here is the close up:

    Close up 1800.jpg

    Paper is Midori MD Notebook
    Pen: Faber Castell Emotion with an Kirk Speer Architect Nib

    Note: This ink is still currently available, is not a limited edition but just a regular ink.

    I hope that you enjoy guessing this ink.

    A nice bright green, DrP! I also use a different pen filled with a different ink every day, although I’m sure my rotation is a tiny fraction of what the rest of you have in inks!! But I love the variety and it does definitely allow me to explore my inks as much as possible, and in different pens as well.

    This looks like another bright-bright like Key Lime Pie, so let me start with:
    GvFC Viper Green?

    AND SHE SWOOPS AND SCORES!

    Well done, mizgeorge! It is indeed DeAtramentis May Green - a lovely May green.

    O. K. that was a bit too easy. I will have to delve into my "little known inks" next time.

    And funnily enough, I nearly didn't include it because it has so many names! Then I thought the month might just be a clue...

    It will be tomorrow before I can take pictures now. But I promise not to use one of the tricky new inks that are due to arrive in the morning. Not this time anyway...

    I've put PenBBS 179 Serenity on my want list. One day I'll delve into the Taccia inks but may be a long time ...

    As Scooby-Doo says, 'Ruh Roh!': I just discovered that the Taccia Ukioyo-e inks are selling for the USD equivalent of about $18.50 here! I think that's a very good price, yes? (But the Jeans inks are around $26.00 - go figure ...)

    Now, how to decide? Hiroshige Ainezu and Utamaru Aomurasaki without doubt, given my taste for grey-leaning colors. But should I also get the burnt orange Sharakyu Koiame (maybe not different enough from my Moonlight of Higashiyama to warrant?) and/or the sorely tempting purple, Hiroshige Nakamurasaki?

    I would definitely get the Sharakyu Koiame (one of my favourite oranges this year), and my other must-have would probably be the gorgeous Hokusai Sabimidori, which I find myself going back to all the time, especially for finer-nibbed pens.

    The Hiroshige Nakamurasaki is probably going to be my next one - only because I've seen what it does in washes!

    Strange on the pricing - the Ukioyo-e and Jeans series are the same price here. Far too expensive, but I keep reminding myself of all the vices I don't have...

    I would agree with mizgeorge. Sabamidori is an exceptional ink, but it seems at its best with finer nibs rather than wider nibs. In wet, wide nibbed pens, it has a tendency to smear on smooth papers.

    Sorry, life got in the way.

    After saying I would do something hard, I had to change my mind because I was writing with this one today, and I love it so much I needed to share - even though it's likely to be a hole in one for somebody!
